The cover for Issue #17 of Kobold Quarterly Magazine. You can check out the final product here and the cover here.

I painted it last summer so it's a bit dated, but it was released this April and I got my copy a few days back so, share time! Looking back on it now I kind of cringe at some of the things I chose to do with it, but I had fun. I'm sure what I'm working on now will be horrendous to me in another year... such is progress. X)

TOTALLY saw the magazine featuring this as the cover yesterday xD I showed my friends and they were amazed.

Wait wait wait. ...wait. YOU did the KQ cover!? AWESOME! =D I clicked over here from Extra Credits, already liked your work on fantastical creatures and monsters (really, as a kid I spent a ton of time just coming up with random creatures and how they looked and fit into their fantasy ecology), and now I see the KQ cover from the latest issue. That's it, I'm gonna watch your account. =)

Woahs! This is great! I wish I could colour like that!
Love the characters portrayed here, as well as the way the beast has no eyes, like an Oddworld creature. It makes me want to know more about what's going on. If only they made more movies with stuff like this in.

Meanwhile, the dramatic composition is just classic. -For better and worse. ;)

Haha this is so awesome! I hope that girl's plan is to jump in the creature's mouth and jab the spear through it's head when it eats her, because that's what looks like is about to happen XD

The characters looks like they are in the midst of one of those extreme last ditch attempts. Personally, I think I would've thrown that spear.

Pretty cool looking monster. :)

I'm rooting for the monster. Teeth and claws are MADE of WIN.
