For my Concept Design II class last semester we were given the story The Seven Geases by Clark Ashton Smith and then we were supposed to come up with designs and develop some looks for the characters from the story. The first one is Tsathoggua the frog/bat God, he's the first one Ralibar encounters. There's been a few images that people have done of Tsathoggua but it was a lot of fun creating a character out of text and coming up with my own design. The second is the archaeopteryx type bird that belongs to the Wizard who curses Ralibar. The bird is sent to lead Ralibar to where he needs to go. I wish I would have had more time to work on these paintings but it was a lot of fun to develop these guys from start to finish. I have a ton of sketches for these guys and other characters throughout the story. Ill post them once I get them back from Don Seegmiller.
