Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes - Sibriex

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 giant demon Sibriex...

The Sibriex just might be my favorite piece that I created for this book. It hits a lot of important notes with me: it is a mess yet it has some order, lots of detail, oozing grossness, crazy textures, a chance to do a self portrait. Speaking of self portrait, a lot of really silly images of me making crazy faces went into the creation of this piece. Production wanted this incarnation to look a bit more intelligent than the preview versions. I was more than happy to step in a try to portray that intelligence. Hopefully it came through in the end.

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 Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
