Re: Query's Art & Stuff Thread

 

Here is a beastie from Teh Bunneh's FH game. We were smart enough (barely) to run away....

 

This is phenomenal, Query! Such a sense of motion and menace from a D&D-style monster. This is fearsome, and the body of the poor tragic victim is beautifully realised; the pose is convincing, the clothing and hair fall naturally (according to the law of gravity). Is the victim a male Elf, or some similar species? I ask because of the long fall of hair, the pale skin....

 

Someone made a "tentacle monster" comment about the monster, and I suppose it is, technically...but it has a plausibility, a creative conviction that the classic TMs lack; after all, they're only there for one thing! In general, TMs are more plot devices or symbols of violence/rape than vital, living critters with habitats, life cycles and convincing physiology -- but this monster-y, tentacle-y creature looks as if it might have all three.

 

This creature (and just what is this frightful fiend, anyway?) has a sense of authenticity that fantasy monsters usually lack; it looks convincing, perhaps even likely, and very, very nasty...and that's due to your talent! Well done, Query; this is impressive. Thank-you for sharing. How big is the original?

 

Oh, and Repped.

The PCs are calling it a chimera, for lack of a better term. They're not entirely sure where it comes from or why it showed up -- that's part of the mystery. But rest assured, it does have an ecology and a reason for being... :eg:
