The Anatomy of Elemental Evil

The July issue of Dragon magazine is out and I am happy to share with you my second contribution to this issue. If you missed the first, check out the post on Monday! Dragon #425 features the article, The Anatomy of Elemental Evil, and the wife had very little involvement with the reference of this one. I summoned my inner Elder Elemental Eye in the Plane of Elemental Chaos and this is what I came up with...

Okay, let's see... tentacles, CHECK... LAVA tentacles, DOUBLE CHECK! I love the assignments that after reading the art description the only question I have is, "Does the column need to have tentacles, or is the column MADE of tentacle?" After all those Mephits and this Elder Elemental Eye I have taken care of more then my share of lava and vapor. Funny how things come across my desk in waves... kinda like Trandoshans... but I digress. Hey look, that thing has LAVA TENTACLES! That's pretty cool!

As always, I would like to thank Kate Irwin for involving me on this project and for her art direction! In the coming weeks I will have for you my thumbnails, sketches, and a process step by step breakdowns for this pieces. 

That is all for another exciting Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
