Scott's picture

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.)​

This #watercolor entry, released 7th of November, 2011, abandons the notion of using toys as models. I don't think I even penciled it, and I think it shows (though there was a prior pencil sketch attempted). I still think it's cute, though.

So for D is for Displacer Beast, I had a little assistance from Mickelson, B., “Ecology of the Displacer Beast”, Dragon Magazine #109, TSR, 1986.
