Looks like the Abyssal Gnolls I've used with pleasure against my players in past campaigns! :D

Cheers dude, but I have to say these are not my favourite gnolls I have painted, they are a bit too monstery for my tastes, the ones I painted more recently for Paizo are my kinda gnoll:)

...you literally work for Dungeons & Dragons, don't you?
like, D&D folks come up and ask you "hey! can you draw up some dudes?" and you go "Yeah, I got ya, bro -w-" and then boom, right?
freaking awesome and envious of your brilliant talent -w- lol! XD
also, sweet gnolls <3 I had the book for a while and always admired the page with them ^^

I've always been thinking about what the average girl thinks about, you know, getting crazy necromantic gifts and raise an undead army to serve me with endless loyalty. But... maybe it would be easier, with gnolls. And more adorable. They look more like kittens than undead do, and as everyone knows, all women are crazy about kittens.

I like how you gave the D&D 4E gnolls and Pathfinder gnolls the same basic look but with very different details. You can kinda tell how their cultures might differ from their clothes and such.

Gnolls are gnolls, I just paint what I see ;) I think the Pathfinder gnolls are a bit less brutal, feral beasts but that distintion may blur at the edges.

I didn't move on from 3.5 so I haven't seen this pic before- but man it's awesome!! Is that the most badass feral Gnoll in the back? Anyways- this is the best picture of gnolls I've ever seen- finally someone who do them honour XD! *fav and watch*

Cheers dude, I love gnolls, although I have to say that I like my gnolls more nuetral and less feral, but that is just personal taste :)

Well, I was thinking of the gnoll subrace 'feral Gnoll', but I still dig the savage gnolls ^^

Gnolls, now that is the most badass representation of one of the most epic, yet not well known fantasy creatures. This definitely belongs in my favorite stack. I likew their barbarian-ish armor and bone decor. FTW

I love gnolls. As a DM, I reserve the right to make my gnolls misunderstood xenophobic savages on the outskirts of civilization, but if they HAVE to be evil, I believe they should be at least this awesome!

Marvelous Pic!! :D

That is how I see them, I love gnolls and think just making them another evil race to kill doesn't do them justice, I think they make great guides and trackers not to mention bodyguards, but within their own culture they are just rough matriarchal tribes folk.

In terms of what you said about defeat...I agree with you 100%

"I will forever stand tall even when I fall I will stand above all. A warriors heart burns brightest when blood runs thickest. Under fullmoon light hear my song hear my call, my music of night. The call of the wild I impart upon thee, what thou does with it, will tell the spirit that lies within." - Unknown.

Never seen gnolls that looked so vicious,deadly, and well bad ass; their usually more off a canon fodder race.
