Art like this reminds me why I really love Erol Otus' work. It's iconic, graphic, and I've always loved the colorful and cartoonlike approach to his fantasy art.

Pure, quintessential of a lot of 1970s and early 1980s fantasy art. (Scanned from the “Days of the Dragon” calendar for 1982.)

After a number of years (seven, apparently)—and thanks to an ideal subject prompt requested from Grackleflint—I finally got around to doing the sixth letter of the monster alphabet. #watercolor

Not great, maybe, but … I've been away.

Plastic #toy #chinasaur figure (circa 1970s) which may have inspired the D&D #Owlbear monster on early gaming tables set by Gygax et al.

Made in Hong Kong. (Like all of these, my own specimen.)​
