I'm going to be drawing monsters for a while. A lot of monsters.
I'm not entirely sure why, but I just got in the mood to draw something creepy the other night; a few of those things are now sitting in my gallery, gleefully staring back at whoever clicks on their images. It has been really good practice, both for general illustration and with the technical pens I'm still getting used to using. Elder things, slimes, goblins, restless dead - all sorts of critters are beginning to pile up in my mind, waiting for their turn to hit the page. That's more than I can say about pretty much any other collection of images over the past six months.
I'm sure there will be other images making their way into my sketchbooks, but I'm happy enough with this trend for now. I'm thinking pretty seriously about creating a gallery of monsters for gaming purposes - I've already created a new tumblr account for it (fortheloveofmonsters.tumblr.com), but we'll see if I can keep the momentum going. I may pick a couple of things out of one of the D&D books for filler, if I start running out of ideas.
(Holy hell my hand hurts after inking that last one. Tooooooo many tiny lines with new tools.)
