One of my favorite creatures, an Illithid, or more commonly known as a Mind Flayer from Dungeons and Dragons. I always see blue, purple, or teal Flayers, so when I found this beauty, I wanted to do a study of it.
I'd like to do more D&D or Pathfinder creatures for personal work... I always feel like my personal work needs to be deep or meaningful but man, I just like fantasy art. Maybe I'll make a D&D series? I've always enjoyed the thought of doing illustrations for them in the official books, or even Pathfinder. Started as a warm-up doodle/study, became a personal piece, then something to try and get me out of this funk I've been in recently. Needed something for me, sorry!
