Elves of Uteria - Tentacle Crawler

At the beginning of last month I mentioned my involvement with The Elves of Uteria RPG and now that all my work for this project is wrapped up I thought I would share it with you this week! On Monday I shared the wily and evil Drekava and on Wednesday I shared the wicked Devouring Ooze. Today I wrap up the monsters with a terrifying tentacled insect! I present to you the Tentacle Crawler...

As an added bonus I have for you several photos of this drawing in process. The Tentacle Crawler is a great mash up of giant centipede and some good old tentacles. This one was a lot of fun to work on. Without further fanfare, here is the Tentacle Crawler taking shape...

That is all for another exciting week on the blog, see you back here on Monday for a new monster painting! Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. I love seeing your pieces come together. It amazes me how you do that. Yay for tentacles! The skittery legs make my skin crawl.

    1. Cool! Glad you enjoyed the process pics! I forget to do them more often when I am in the middle of working on stuff for clients. This was a WIN/WIN monster :)
