Fresh from the drawing table... Wasp (Giant)!

I have for you today another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is a Wasp (Giant)! "W" had several monsters to choose from and for a long time I thought the Wyvern or Wight would have won out. In the end I must have still be on a giant insect monster kick from the Umber Hulk and went with the Wasp. I present to you my version of a Wasp (Giant)...

When will those pesky wizards learn? Now they have gone and made horrific giant wasps. How else could such a creature come to be? I really wanted to take these critters to the extreme and actually make them the size of giants. Their massive mutated bodies being too much for their tiny wings, they walk about the landscape hunting and destroying everything in their paths. Beware their sting!
