Eugh, I just saw the competition do draw a monster for Battle Chasers: Night War yesterday. It was the deadline, so I raced to get this done. Wish I had more time to play as I love the art for it.
Check their kickstarter.
Often I'll start a design, and the backstory will start to build as I draw. Now, I realise that the back story is quite strong for this one, but I wouldn't necessarily draw the same thing if it had been my starting point. Might be one for the revisiting pile!
Part of the comp asked that the monster fit into the background below.
