Osteovipers are pretty scary. That's about all I've got.

Ok, I blew it. Several posts ago, I said I wasn't going to do any fan art for Inktober. Well, I made myself into a gosh darn fibber, because here is a Nautilus from World of Rivals. I took part in theKickstarter campaign for their upcoming minis wargame Masters of the Deep and I'm totally enamored with it. I can't wait to play it.
In my defense, there is no swashbuckler among the Nautilus in Masters of the Deep, so this is only kinda/sorta fan art. Boom, I still win!
I decided I'd ride this King of the Undead horse for a little bit. This is his #1 servant, his right hand, his zombie butler Snidely Shambles. Snidely was the first undead that The King ever raised so, you know, he's special.
The King of the Undead! Ok, so, he's totally a Lich but- you now how some people get squeamish over the word 'moist'? He's that way about the word 'Lich'. No seriously, he HATES it.
He was a wandering minstrel back when he was alive in the usual sense. But after a few decades of dabbling in dark and forbidden magic he is now the undying King of the Undead!
He can do a ton of spells, and command zombies and ghosts and stuff, and his Sceptre of the Abhorrent makes freakish monsters like Tunnelway Terrors obey his commands. He doesn't even say "Please". Shaking my dang head.
As its name implies, this cuddly critter lurks in tunnels, caves, long stone-walled hallways and other such places acting all imposing and unpleasant.
They're extremely bitey and they like to menace people with their barbed whips and they spew a paralyzing venom and they're just best avoided.
Hal Owen and his buddy Lurff. Horrifying, I know. Sometimes you tread through some pretty dark territory when you assign yourself the theme 'monsters' for Inktober.
What's that saying- Those who draw monsters must take care bot to become monsters themselves or something to that effect.
Alright, here's the deal, I told myself that I wasn't going to do any fan art for Inktober. But goldarn I wanted really really badly to draw some Yo-kai Watch characters and then on the 15th I went to the one day only Yo-kai Watch movie event and was all crazy over it all. Plus I'd gotten a Kappa figure for Ninja All Stars from Soda Pop Miniatures. So because of all this, I drew a Kappa. That's really all I wanted to tell you.
The horrible Dentula!
Ok, funny story. Kind of long.
Back in the day, a friend of mine and I spent a lot of our time making comics about dental floss dispenser creatures who were at war with dinosaurs.
I guess it wasn't a funny story, nor was it very long, but it WAS a story. Plus, it was true, so there's that.
So anyhoo, in my current head cannon, The Dentula here is the leader of the Dentok forces, heck-bent on destroying the dinosaur armies of Earth and ruling the world from 900 kabillion B.C.
I know they're usually weird chickeny or snake things with more legs than necessary, but in my world this is a basilisk. Also in my world, they don't kill you or turn you to stone with a stare. They can paralyze you with a glare, but there is debate among scholars about whether it's some sort of supernatural force causing this or if it's just the basilisk's strength of will.
It's an eyeball monster. I've just decided while typing this that it's called a Glimpset.
They're pretty vicious in the wild, but if raised from an egg they can be domesticated and make good guard monsters but you have to get notarized, written permission to raise one from a local druidic order or ranger guild. This is no joke, y'all.
So I was watching Marvel's Agents of SHIELD: Ghost Rider and decided that if I were to host the Spirit of Vengeance, we'd probably look something like this.

Did I mention that I assigned myself the theme "monsters" for Inktober this year? Because I have.
And sometimes, monsters work in coffee shops.
