    Dakaran making some monster minis in no way invalidates this thread. Everyone is free to make minis, and I personally like seeing multiple versions of a given creature -- sometimes the pose or coloring one artist chooses doesn't fit my mental image of the creature as well as what another artist chooses. We should encourage, not discourage, artists adding to the thread!

    Dakaran's been at Gen Con so that's why we haven't heard from him these past few days.

    Yup, I've been just crazy busy with life in general and I've been away at GenCon for the past many days so I just unfortunately haven't gotten in here to do a proper update. Thanks for your patience everyone. While yes, I have started a blog for print and play game content (with a primary focus on D&D minis) I have every intention of keeping this thread alive. Savannah's point is a great example of why I want to keep this rolling.

    Finishing up the series of giants from the original Monster Manual, the Cloud Giant. Tramp's depiction was itself apparently based on a turn-of-the-19th-century illustration of "Jack and the Beanstalk":

    By the way, Dakaran, did you see these I had already done? I noticed they weren't among the others. I didn't know if you had overlooked them, or didn't like them, or thought we had enough giants, or what.

    Kymme, thank you so much for your wonderful second batch of tokens!

    Sgt. Pepper, welcome to the party! Your tokens are magnificent, if I do say so. In particular, your bards, elves, and skeletons are really top notch.

    Tannhaeuser, I am terribly sorry. I'm not sure how, but it seems that I had missed that subset of tokens. I certainly otherwise would not have excluded them. Thank you so much for your continued support!

    So, update 1.6 of the Monster Manual Token Download is up and includes all tokens thus far posted to the thread (unless I've overlooked something - if so please let me know). The Art Gallery has also been updated accordingly.

    Thank you all again! I'm sure there are a great many players happy to be able to use your tokens in their games.

    Hey, no problem, Dakaran; I was only wondering.

    Does anyone have any requests for some Old-School D&D monsters? Y'know, like from Monster Manuals I and II and the Fiend Folio (or possibly even the Deities & Demigods handbook)? I do enjoy doing these.

    All the best, all!

    Meltheim: How about: Thri-Kreen (of various classes), Elves (because they're so different from all other elves), Gith, Belgoi, Braxat, Gaj, Kank, Crodlu (and maybe Erdlu and Erdland?), Inix, Meikillot, Rasclin, Kirre, I could go on....

    Thanks for the suggestions Torath! I made a horrible Kank and a few Spirits of Athas, and I will probably jump on that list soon. I also whipped some elves up but I am running out of space on my imgur account so I will have to find another place to store them for sharing.

    Okay, Lord Torath, you asked for it, you got it (and thanks, by the way, for your flattering and wholly undeserved compliments) -- from the original Monster Manual, the Catoblepas:

    I have to admit, I don't think I did a very good job at all with this one. On the other hand, it's an ugly beast at best, and I did try to make it at least interesting, if not attractive. (The mane of hair, by the way, comes from the gnu by way of Topsell.) Oh, well!

    Love the Behir! Now to paste it into my Draw Your Own publication, and it can surprise my kids when they finally make it to the Isle of Dread!

    So.... want to do any dinosaurs?

    You really think so? I kind of like the squared ends, myself, particularly for the fingers/toes, though I suppose it does look a bit strange on the tail-end. Hmmm...

    What I am really beginning to wonder is whether I should start thinning my lines more. I mean, I like the thick black outlines, but they are a bit un-Burlewvian, aren't they? Hmmm, again...

    And now, another monster. First appearing in 1983 in the second Monster Manual, the Vargouille!

    Or you could do something else. Maybe a Brain Collector (X2 - Castle Amber)? Or a Kopru (X1 - Isle of Dread)?

    Or, you know, something from the Monster Manual? Maybe the Fly-Demon (Chasme?), or a Nycadaemon (D3 - Vault of the Drow)...

    (I'm just shamelessly suggesting monsters I will probably be using sometime in the future... )

    Tannhaeuser, those look great! I love the facets on the Chasme's eyes!

    I like your use of shading. It's subtle, but it really adds to your drawings.

    Hey, if you do ever get around to doing Dark Sun stuff, make certain you do the 2nd Edition version of Thri-Kreen (as seen here and here). The newer version (without the extended abdomen) looks more like an ant man than a Preying Mantis.

    Here we are again! Still no dinosaurs, technically, but here is something very, very close -- appearing first in the Dungeons & Dragons Supplement II: Blackmoor (1975), and subsequently in Monster Manual I (1977) and the 1980 module Isle of Dread, the Plesiosaurus:

    Next, in honor of Halloween, the spoooooky Apparition, first appearing in 1981's Fiend Folio:

    How are these?

    Great looking Pleisiosaur! And now I need to go look up the Apparition! I love the transparent effect of the robes.

    And no rush on the dinosaurs. My kids are currently mired in the Caves of Chaos (ambushed by knollsgnolls and orcs) and show no signs of wanting to resolve the battle. And after that they'll be swooped off to Castle Amber on the way to Specularum to get a ship. So I've got some time before I need dinosaurs.

    Rakasta, though, they'd be pretty cool!

    Oo! Tannhaeuser! Getting back to the Monster Manual, how about a Remorhaz? I seem to remember a drawing of one of those with a pair of feet sticking out of its mouth.
