:3 illllliiiiiithiiiiidssssss. very nice. strange though. when i type in mind flayers and/or illithids, this pic never showed up except when i typed in D&D. what are those things exactly on the bottom? Gibbering ooze?
Mindflayers. Twisted, sick bastards, I love them. You have done their kind justice with this piece, the screaming associates, minions and prisoners seem to be... 'enjoying' his company. Well done, keep up the good work.
Big fan of this piece, but wanted to know if you thought up names and uses for the items that Shathrax has on him while you did the artwork. Just was interested as a curiosity seeing the adventure he's in doesn't have anything on it.
My most powerful character ever is a female Mind Flayer whose only goal is to become a god. Her companions of choice are two devil twins (sort of her brawn), and an Entropic Reaper who harvests souls so she, too, can become a god. I saw your Shathrax, and the first thing I thought was, oh my god it's Irithia's mate. This picture is so incredibly epic and perfect. Love it love it, Mind Flayers are my favorite creatures ever. So sinister, so clever, so incredibly evil. I want a t-shirt that says I Brains in honor. Kudos to you!
Funny that, see they are simply the creation of a humanoid who has been implanted by asexually produced tadpole and altered to be a genderless host form. Then again what is fantasy for if not switching things up a little and adding evil squid romance to your list of things you want to imagine on your off nights.
This has got to be one of your best! Great lighting, and what really seals it for me is all the little things scattered about the bottom on the floor, all those little details really make the whole thing swirl with imagination and ideas.
Good good stuff! If I could fave it 5 times I so would.
