It's beginning to look a lot like Krampus!

Fun Hannah fact? I LOVE Grimm. Best show thats on TV right now besides Big Bang Theory. So lets get into the Grimm of things! Merry Krampus everybody :D

"Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Yule season who had misbehaved, in contrast withSaint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus is said to capture particularly naughty children in his sack and carry them away to his lair.
Krampus is represented as a beast-like creature, generally demonic in appearance. The creature has roots in Germanic folklore; however, its influence has spread far beyond German borders. Traditionally young men dress up as the Krampus in Austria, southern BavariaSouth Tyrol, northern FriuliHungary,Slovenia, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic and Croatia during the first week of December, particularly on the evening of 5 December (the eve of Saint Nicholas day on many church calendars), and roam the streets frightening children with rusty chains and bells. Krampus is featured on holiday greeting cards called Krampuskarten. There are many names for Krampus, as well as many regional variations in portrayal and celebration." - Krampus Wikipedia page

A Drow by Any Other Name

Anybody who has read R.A. Salvatore's books involving the rather famous Drizzt might also know the 'infamous' Jarlaxle who runs Bregan D'aerth in Menzoberanzan. While not exactly evil, he's not good either and likes to play the field in all aspects of life ;)

Astral Power

The Sorceress again, and this time her little familiar isn't so little....or friendly looking for that matter!

The Pot & Kettle

This one had some minor editing in photoshop to get everything straightened out. One of my favorites from last year.

Quothe the Raven

A friend of mine had told me he wanted a raven tattoo for his back, and so I set about trying to draw some birds. They are harder than they look I tell you...

This was one of the idea's I managed to get down that I liked.

Late Night Paperwork

This picture of a sorceress and her familiar is from a couple years ago, but it still remains a favorite. Coloring was done traditionally with markers and colored pencils.
