While all of these drawings have been done for weeks now, I have been trying to space out posting them so as not to inundate those who only sparsely follow my lowly blog here. +Matt Hargenrader from the tentatively named publishing group Random Gamers Guild is working on a monster book that should be showing up sometime after the first of the year.
While I still have several illustrations to complete, I will be posting some of the ones that are done and submitted to him.
The Zalinare is one of them.

I went with a light flowing style for this guy, and kept the inking to a minimum which I think gives him that airy feel. These creatures live in trees and have the ability to glide from limb to limb, and I definitely wanted to represent that aspect of the creature.
They are also semi intelligent and use tools, minor weapons and clothing. So I kept his trappings light, with just a skirt/loincloth and a bone handled dagger.
Interesting creature, and one I particularly enjoyed drawing.
Thanks for looking and comments always welcome.
