Fresh from the drawing table... Imp!

I have for you today another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is an Imp! "I" didn't have a lot of options, but the Imp was clearly the obvious choice. Hard to go wrong with creepy little demon creatures. The Intellect Devourer was also very enticing, but there is always the fear of copyright infringement. Once again sticking with my first choice, I present to you my version of a Imp...

When it is not the familiar for a powerful wizard the Imp can be seen wringing it's hangs and skulking... two of it's favorite pastimes. I tried to incorporate a medieval demon feel to the Imp while still staying true to my own style. Not sure how well I pulled it off, but my wife certainly likes this one.

me regarding my availability head over to my website:


  1. I hope you're going to paint this little guy?

  2. The plan is to paint all of these. It is finding the precious time to do so. I also want to paint them in the order I drew them... so this guy might be unpainted for a bit. This is a long term goal...

  3. That's good to hear! But I understand the time constraints, I'll just be sitting back patiently waiting :)
