Random Gamers Guild: Andrewsarchus Plus

This next creature is the Andrewsarchus. Matt Hargenrader needed two versions of this beast, the first and slightly more mundane is presented here.

The Andrewsarchus once lived during the Eocene Epoch, it is set apart from others like him by his long narrow snout, filled with teeth some of which were flat shaped, perhaps to crush bone. The coloration and the long mane help it to hide among the savanna's of his range.

He is large standing 6 foot at the shoulder and being close to 11 foot long.

The next version is a bit more fanciful, this is a ten legged version, and much more vicious.

He differs from the first with his wide long snout and jutting teeth. His ten limbs allow him to move very rapidly across flat terrain, and his coloration helps hide him when he is ready to pounce on waiting prey.

I wouldn't want to run up against either of these, and I can only imagine what would happen to a party of characters who chanced across their path.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did drawing them. Special thanks to Matt Hargenrader and the Random Gamers Guild, his project will be announced some time after the first of the year, and he tasked me with illustrating roughly 12 of the creatures in it. Although I have not shown them all here, I will be filling the pages of this lowly blog with their likenesses in the very near future.

I really appreciate those who take their time to look over my artwork. It means a lot, I appreciate all of the page views, and the +'s very much.

Thanks for looking and comments always welcome.
