Bestiary Project: Making a Monster Manual from Scratch

*Last Update 3/7/24*

I had some old photo albums that I bought at estate sales and secondhand stores that had some sweet old paper in them. Those pages had a great texture and I've always wanted to make something out of them.

I rough cut two A5 sized sheets from the larger pages, and then trimmed them down with an old school slicer-dicer that I found a few years back. 

After all of that slicing & dicing I got out a marker pen and went to work. I messed up in a few places, but here is my first monster. :)

Here is a weird hopping flightless bird.

I messed up that M. Lol.

Look at this quirky lil goofball monster.

I based the drawing off an old school illustration.

Those pseudopods... didn't turn out quite right. Haha.

He never skips antler day...

I saw a Call of Cthulhu image posted a few weeks back that inspired this guy.

My version of the Intellect Devourer.

Apparently a magic-user named Xasu made this disgusting thing...

It's got legs and it forgets how to use them... 

Who needs a decapitation fungus? Lol
