Githyanki drawing!

This is my illustration of a githyanki. The githyanki (pronounced: gith-YAN-kee) are a fictional humanoid race in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. They typically live in the subterranean  world of the Underdark.  The 1981 edition of the Fiend Folio features a githyanki on the cover.
