First set of requested monster sketches. You guys have tossed me SO MANY cool things, I think I might take a second night to get more more done.
A bunch of you wanted Crocotta! A cool classical ‘natural’ animal, visually a cross between a dog and wolf, with a lion’s neck and stag’s back half. I always thought it was based on the real life aardwolf. I based my sketch on a wild dog and pitbull style dog, which might be similar to the hyena like descriptions given.
And Mothman! One of my favorite American cryptids. I like to keep some of the real world counter parts in the design; Barred Owl being one of the possible misidentifications. While still getting that humanoid form going on.
Crunching some time to get some background characters designed for upcoming comic work. I have a lot more to go through and get ready, and I think this is gonna fill the monthly mini sketchbook for Patreon backers.
Some vaguely fox like critters for the ‘Court of Foxes’
