Alienist by BenWootten Alienist by BenWootten
Gristle monsters make great pets, I really think they will catch on.

Interiors work for the the Psionic Handbook, 4e rules released by Wizards of the Coast.

It looks like a pokemon ... from Cthulhu's universe. I guess she has to catch them all.

I wish it was only water, but she has gone further than that and torn a hole to who knows where.....usually a bad idea:)

Crazy, awesome design- you blended anatomy from lots of different things to create an utterly bizarre monster!! I see what look like ribcages, semi-transluscent skin, eyeballs, tentacles, and who-knows-what else all put together. The floating, blobby bits of it remind me of the blood-red glister that lived in the Sanctaphrax stonecomb in the Edge Chronicles- but this monster has gristle and bone as well, unlike the amorphous glister.

Im interested to know what description u got for this kind of monsters... It seems to me that is easier to paint it than to describe it ;) I bet that Wizards are very specific about those things, to the last tentacle :)

I actually had a pretty free run on this one, the description was reasonbly loose. Outlined the feel of the thing, gristle, bone, eyes and mouths but I was left to put it together. Quite nice as the brief are usually a bit tighter and they do have a pretty extensive style guide for a lot of their product, but generally there is flex there for the artist to explore.

Your images never fail to have one or more elements that spike my interest, even if the subject matter does not. Here it's the spiky hair. Idk, it adds intensity to the scene. :P Great work!

What a bizarre character, I love the monster very much. Looks like it was carefully studied, like that great tentacle that is part of a snout that is part of face. Excellent :)

The thing that really annoys me is that Psionics never appear in the video games. Well, they had some in the old Dark Sun games, but no Psionic classes, just a few piddly powers.
