Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes - Eidolon

Last year I had the joy of working on Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, the newest supplement for Dungeons & Dragons. I created five monster illustrations for the book and had an amazing time doing so. A huge thanks goes out to Kate Irwin for including me on this project! Today I have for you the mighty Eidolon...

This was a fun one and really hit my in the D&D feels. If you are familiar with the long history of D&D you should see a striking resemblance between this animated statue and the statue on the cover of the First Edition Players Handbook. In fact I was asked to make this Eidolon look exactly like the station on the Players Handbook... if it had just stood up and was about to cause some trouble. You might notice that there is a different length in the loin cloth from the drawing to the final... that is a story for another day.

Keep an eye on the blog as I share the rest of my contributions to Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes!

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