Hey rossik,

Yeah, I was hoping people could tell that the bulette was jumping up and down out of the ground, like a dolphin. He may be "hopping" into that purple worm's mouth if the adventurers can close that portable hole fast enough. Wink

The portable hold is going into the purple worm's mouth too at any rate. I wonder how long it will hold up to the purple worm's stomach acid before it dissolves away...

Cloth vs. Acid: 12. Not so good. Evil Grin

We don't know that one of the PCs doesn't already have a bag of holding on his belt, now do we? :D

Touché! One-upped by the grodog. Laughing

Now you see, Glad27 could create his own coloring book filled with OGL critters and D&D characters if he wanted too. Cool

Hey, at least my doodle is creating some conversation...I don't guess an artist can ask for much more than that.

This drawing was a bit tough in the sense that I knew without words, it was going to be hard to convey what I was trying get across in the drawing.

The party is actually jumping into a portable hole (the black oval that they're jumping into...that's not an opening that the purple worm is making...although he his real close to the surface of the plains) and depending on how you interpret the magic item, the characters are actually jumping into an extradimensional 10' deep space. I drew it to suggest that if they can get it completely shut before the bulette gets to them, then they technically don't exist there at the point where the bulette will jump into the earth, but instead would wind up in the purple worm's maw.

Now, if the bulette can get to them before they can shut the portable hole up, then that's a whole different ballgame. At that point, I'd think the bulette would be partially in the PH and partially out (hindlegs kicking in the air) and then the purple worm could come up and technically eat both the party that's in the partially closed PH AND the bulette.

Although, the purple worm would probably have serious indigestion due to the portable hole, not to mention a thrashing P.O.'d bulette.

But that's just my interpretation. And I plan on putting some more art up as soon as I can find the time to do some more personal stuff. I've been pretty busy with actual art work for publishers lately, which isn't a bad thing, but it's kept me from doing as much of my own art as I'd like to be doing.

*And thanks, Mystic-Scholar, for the vote of confidence, if I ever get a wild hair and decide to do a coloring book, you'll be the first to know. Wink

I think it might actually work... if the party can get into the portable hole and close it from the inside the buellete would ram right into the ground where they had just been. Up comes the worm and swallows the landshark. Hopefully the party will have enough air in the hole so that when they run out of fresh air and open the hole back up the coast is clear.

As a DM I think I'd allow my characters to pull it off with a couple of dexterity checks and good roleplaying but then, being the sadistic bastard I am, I'd punish them a bit for getting away from my monster Evil Grin perhaps when they reopen the hole they find themselves suspended in mid-air over the middle of a purple worm tunnel that falls vertically for a hundred feet before leveling out. Will they be able to jump safely to the edge? - none of the three of them look like they would make good long jumpers Laughing


One of the things I liked about the first edition books was the black and white art... many was the player that used their own Monster Manual or Deities & Demigods as a coloring book.

i would buy too, Glad, so you better think on a cheap way to send to brazil! Laughing

i must confess that i got the hopping bullete and the portable hole the firts time.

the thing i didnt get right away was the purple worm.
dont know it seemed too "blend" to the earth, maybe because of the color

still, is a awesome work, and i hope to see more!

any chance of doing a interpretation of robilar? (im a big fan)

Thanks, rossik.

Yeah, by the time I used the space I needed for the "above ground" action, I didn't leave a ton of space for the purple worm, which is my bad.

And I'm not gonna lie...I don't know what a robilar is. Shocked

Yeah, that's what threw me too, rossik. Perhaps if the PW wasn't quite so close as to be almost breaking the surface of the ground, that might help better differentiate it from the PH???

The leap-frogging bullette "gopher holes" are a funny bit too.

You just had to do a female dwarf, didn't you. Laughing

And you have the elf's arrow on the bow properly and he is holding the string correctly too! The devil is in the details. Cool

That's my first ever drawn female dwarf...but I think she turned out cute...well, as far as short, squat, hairy chinned females go. Wink

And thanks, fellas...I appreciate the kind words.

But what are the adventurers saying/thinking...

Cleric of Heironeous: "SHAZAM!"(accompanied by the sound of thunder of course)

Female Dwarf: "Look at the symbol of Moradin! LOOK AT IT!"

Elf(thought bubble): "Of course, a lich giant. Guess I'll have to prove how utterly fantastic I am by shooting something other than an eyeball for a change."

Barbarian(thought bubble): "Dagnabit! There they go again, making the stuff I want to chop with my sword run away."

Wink

Hi all -
Because I don't visit the 2e forums much, I miss this stuff. I just happened to see my e-Friend Mystic-Scholar had made a recent post and thought I'd check it out.
But when I saw those first three pictures in your first post, I immediately thought of the Troubadour Presses 1979 Coloring Book. I read a few other posts that said almost the same thing. But this Lich King picture is a clear example of what the original coloring book was all about. Sure it was also an adventure, but just by looking at these pictures, you could write the adventure that goes along with them.
I had a player that drew like this - I have literally a "poster" that is seven 8.5" x 11" pages wide by five 8.5" x 11" pages long as a dungeon poster done in the original coloring book center page style. Unfortunately it is so big that I can't get it laminated (because I taped it all together and at one time had it on the wall - but now even with my own small library/game room I can't fit it on the wall or ceiling).
I would love to see even an unofficial coloring book put together of your artwork. With Mort's knowledge and weekly ability to come up with great WoG Comic stories I think he would be an awesome collaborator. Shyt, even Grodog or Rasgon would be ideal for getting you to draw in some well visualized (but hidden from most of us that only know GH half as well as them) GH concepts.
Hell, even add in a (few) GH iconic character(s) vs. classic 1e/2e monsters such as Beholders/Mind Flayers or a few other MM1 or Fiend Folio baddies and submit them for the Oerth Journal (although I know Rick's been out of it a bit).
How awesome would it be too see an early Mordikanien (maybe when he still had hair?) vs. those in the Fantastic Adventure? Or what about the Ghost Tower?
Without a doubt, I have to say that these pictures are some of the best that I've seen, by fans. These are well enough that posting this type of work on larger forums like EN World would/could garner a few paychecks. Two works of art that I had commissioned for GreyhawkOnline.com were done by VShane around 2002/3 and they cost me $25 each (http://www.greyhawkonline.com/artwork). If I had a job, I'd be willing to have you draw a few pictures for me.
With that said, I'd also be willing to host any pictures you'd like on GreyhawkOnline.com.

Awesome work. I will be following this thread much more closely, especially as I've now removed a Darth Vader picture from my smaller second monitor and put the Frost Giant Lich as it's background. I want to see more. More, More, MORE!
Be Well. Be Well Drawn.
Theocrat Issak

(Edit) P.S. I'd like to see these in higher quality, larger size for wall papering so that I don't have to yank them from the posts and hope they'll fit my screen size (Frost Giant Lich does, but a few others don't quite fit right). Be Well. Be Well Sized. Theocrat Issak

Mordenkainen still has hair. He just shaves his head for some unknown reason. Question

I blame Picard fans. Razz
