Here is a piece I did for Paizo Publishing a little while back.

A diminutive Gnome pacifies the huge beast. "Judge me by my size do you?"

no its just a very little wizard:)
I love how you managed to capture that inquisitive look owls give things that pique their interest.  And for for some reason, this is the first pic of an owlbear that's made me wonder if they can do that freaky head-turning thing "normal" owls do.  (That should have occurred to me decades ago...)

Hence the title of the piece, with out the nifty spell of the same name things would look very different:)

More Owlbear! haha that's awesome, and so much better than cowbell :) 
Owlbears are crazy cool and weird at the same time, I mean do they lay eggs like an owl or give birth like a bear you just don't know.

well obviously, the same as Gryphons.... :) 
....... And how do gryphons give birth
kofaile's avatar
well obviously very carefully ;) 
......... Good enough for me. :)
