Thrice - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

Recently I have shared with you my Gray Wanderer, Corrupted Knight, Smokestack, Belled Kreep, and Aberrant Stilter monsters. Today, I have for you the sixth piece in this series. This piece was finished this past weekend and continues to be at the new larger scale. I present you with the Thrice.

The Thrice is the last of three monsters I designed once returning home from Illuxcon last year. I allowed people on Facebook vote on which I would draw, based on just the name. The Thrice received the least votes.

Upon returning home from Illuxcon, I laid out a plan for five personal pieces I wanted to work on, three toned paper monsters, and two painted self-portraits. With the completion of the Thrice, all five of these personal pieces are finished. This pleases me a lot since it means I am making more time for my own work. It is now time to look ahead and figure out what personal pieces will be next!

Here are all the other completed monsters for The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia: Aberrant Stilter, Belled Kreep, Corrupted Knight, Dight-Kin, Eau-de-nil Elder, Ethra VanDalia, Footman, Gray Wanderer, Gullet, Humgruffin Mother, Irritated Girasol, Judicator, Kiplorbic Animal Dealer, Lammergeier Transport, Myopic Riflemen, Nimsbane Curse Victim, Ophiomornous Bureaucrat, Petrous Blacksmith, Quincaillerie, Saint Marque, Smokestack, Thrice, Uncanny Scribe, Virulent Artificer, Xandrell Tree, Yote Arms Dealer, and Zombic Spore.

Further details on this piece, like all of these personal monsters on toned paper, will have to wait for another day and, hopefully, a different type of information interface. Fear naught, all will be revealed in the fullness of time. As an added bonus, here are some images of the piece as I worked on it...
