The face of a Frankenstien’s Monster redesign I’m working on, and the acompanying thumbnails.  The above-head will be going on something that looks akin to #14.  Further sketches on their way…

My apologies for the lack of updates lately; I’ve been pretty busy with my new role as the Zorganizer (Zoo Organizer) for TheIllustrationboard.com.  Head over to the boards, sign up, and say hello.  While you’re there, check out the animal drawing blog I’m running for the board, and take a look at the “Events” section to jon us for our zoo drawing trips.

Anyways, you’re probobly wondering what’s been going on in my sketchbook.  Well, here you go…

B is for Blue Dragon

Filed under: A to Z monsters — tb @ 6:24 pm



“Blue Dragons have a highly developed sense of order.  The oldest blue dragon in an area acts as an overlord to all lesser blue dragons living nearby.  This suzerain receives homage from it’s subjects and settles any disputes, particularly involving mates or territorial boundaries.”


I’ve always loved the Blue Dragons of D&D, and with Lockwood’s redesign of the RPG’s dragons several years back, I fell in love with them all over again.  I image this particular overlord like an old male lion, having a harem of females hunting for him, bringing him gifts of food and gold daily as he does little more than look out over his territory and grow larger with each passing century.  Yeah, I’m a nerd.

A is for Azer

Filed under: A to Z monsters — tb @ 12:08 pm


“Azers are dwarves native to the elemental plane of fire. They have metallic, brass-colored skin, and flames lick their heads where a normal dwarf would have hair and a beard. They wear kilts of brass, bronze, or copper.”I felt like tying this fellow back to his historical roots by giving him some Persian-inspired swords, seeing as “Azer” is the Persian word for “fire.” I think I’m going to be revisiting these guys in the future, too..There’s so many cool ideas when it comes to a creature made of fire and metal..Apothecaries with smithing hammers and tools to mend the dents out of wounded soldiers, an Azer Lord covered in tattoos that have been chiseled into his metal hide, and super-soldiers with additional brass armor welded to their bodies.

There’s just so much potential for interesting designs with these things. For now though, on to “B.”
