Owlbear (standard/basic) concept art for The Forgotten Realms (Dungeons & Dragons).

This was a basic concept going off the key descriptions and it being a basic mash-up, spanning all the previous owlbear versions for D&D over the last 30+ years. The challenge was coming up with a creature design that didn't come across as "cute or cuddly"...it needed to be something you fear if you encounter one, so a few more variations were completed after this.

Twit- RAAAAAAAAAW! Aw that's brilliant, good job coming up with something horribly terrifying out of two semi-cute animals.

You have quite a gift. This is fantastic, the shading, the textures, the colors all done just perfect. Thanks for sharing your gift. I enjoy posting pictures of owlbears on my FB wall on Mondays, because it makes Monday look a lot less scary. Thanks again.

Displacer beast and owl bear are some of my favourite D&D icons, and your illustrations of them are truly fantastic!

more belly... the fashion of the bodybuilder-in-everything is gone. Look at a normal big bear

I adore this one! Both are good but the small head gives this a much larger creepy factor. Naturally not all owl bears look the same so keeping both works too!
