This art for the Umber Giant was inspired by the drawing of a giant in Underworld & Wilderness on pg. 11. Terry Olson wrote up a very interesting monster based on the art I did.
The layout of Beasties is generally following this format with a description on the left page and a full page illustration on the right. The book is coming along well with about 10 monsters of 26, one for each letter of the alphabet, remaining to draw. I'm still working on the write ups and will preview more of them over the next couple weeks.
