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

I have for you another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is a Beaver (Giant)! I back to working on the remaining "B" monsters... till I need another break. While there are a lot of mundane "B" monsters remaining I am trying to give them a twist whenever possible. Case in point, a Giant Beaver that is a little bit more then just a really larger version of the mundane counterpart. I present to you my version of a Beaver (Giant)…

Say what you will about massive animals, but I think I would much rather tangle with a beaver the size of a car instead of a man sized beaver with a spear and shield that looks you in the eye before running you though. Not sure if wizards had something to do with all this mess with the highly intelligent bipedal tool using beavers, but I highly suspect it. Of course, crazier things have just naturally happened in the realms, so who knows. What I do know is that you need to stay on these guys good side and give their dens and wide berth.
