It's about that time again. Say hello to my latest personal demon:
Meet Acriphagea, the demon of torment and comprehension. This demon was drawn out of debilitating stomach/back pain, which I think I've finally conquered. Just like digestion, it consumes aspects of the world and dissolves them, breaking down every component and either using them or disposing of them.
Contrary to how gruesome it looks, Acriphagea is a necessity - being able to analyze and fully understand what you're consuming can help clarify what you're encountering in this wild world. Blocking this demon is both literal and metaphorical: gastric obstruction can wreak havoc on your entire body, just as obstructing curiosity, compassion, and consideration can ruin your perception of the universe.
Acriphagea fought me the entire way. Below is one of the iterations. There were two other designs which simply couldn't make the cut, but I'm happy with having it finally drawn out.
The next annual demon, I feel, will be a more pleasant one. We'll see. :) But right now I'm hungry! Have a great Monday, chillens.
A healthy dose of fantasy for your soul! Here's a selection of my favorite published artworks in the Pathfinder series this past year. I guess I should show them off eh? Look but don't touch (they bite):
GALLOWS OF MADNESS:
SEERS OF THE DROWNED CITY:
^ this guy is my personal favorite, as I got to utilize a bunch of my own fungus photography as reference
There's more where that came from, but you'll have to peek inside the Pathfinder books to find them! Also, keep an eye open for a horde of demons being published this fall...
