On Monday, I shared the first of two posts of my work from the new Dungeons & Dragons supplement, Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft. Today brings the second post and the mighty Unspeakable Horror. This monster was a particular joy to design and paint. While there was a loose description provided, a lot of it was up to me to work out. I remember the need for its body to look and feel like old rotten wood and that it needed to have a crown of parasitic worms or caterpillars. All I know is that I needed to make an Unspeakable Horror, and I was more than happy to oblige. Here is the final painting for the Unspeakable Horror.
The final painting may be digital, but there is, as with all of my D&D work, an original drawing available of this monster. I was especially pleased with the drawing for this one and gave it additional time and attention. Partially due to the complexity and partly because I was enjoying myself. Here are the drawings for the Unspeakable Horror.
Lastly, here is a look at the Unspeakable Horror in the book. It printed beautifully. I really like the red graphic element behind the figure; it complements the piece nicely. As always, fingers crossed that there will eventually be a miniature made for this monster.
That is all of another exciting Wednesday on the blog. See you back here on Friday! Until then...
