Peryton by Ungapants Peryton by Ungapants
Head of a demon stag and the body of a giant eagle, the Peryton hates it's life, only believing that if it consumes the perfect human heart it would become better. The Peryton casts the shadow of the last creature whose heart they ate, never casting their own.

This is my entry for the guest week at Dungeons and Drawings, a blog set up by two friends, Josef Sparrow and Blanca Martinez, who illustrate and re-invent the many creatures shown in the Dungeons and Dragons' Monster Manuals. Even if you've never played Dungeons and Dragons in your life, it's hard not to be engaged or inspired by the work that comes out of it. Definitely worth checking out.
More artists will be featuring everyday this week!

The texturing and brushes are lovely, but I particularly like the monster design and concept. It's beautifully creepy.

This is an absolutely fabulous design. The shadow is particularly frightening what with the jagged lines and stark contrast. Wonderful work. :)

Thank you, i'm glad you like it. I actually drew this like 3 other times differently before I arrived at this one, it wasn't as sinister the first few times, so I'm glad it paid off :-)

Thank you, the lines are down to my sister, who insisted i have detail because it looked unfinished. we are each other's harshest critics minus ourselves

I know, I have to say that I drew this image with more of a sympathy for the Peryton. You get some people that are pretty much exactly the same, just a little less violent

I didn't make up the Peryton mind you, it was taken from a Dungeons and Dragons' Monster guide.
