Here are all the Monster Hunter World fan art pieces I did for this year's month of monsters.
I've really like this game--in case you couldn't tell--but I wish there was a dynamic for training up any monsters you capture. Maybe there is and I haven't found it it yet? A lady can dream, right? I really like how the game designers have made a full ecosystem with all the critters and that there are big ol' pile of scientist studying the endemic life of the island. My favorite part is just being able to wander around exploring and collecting stuff for the scientists, oh, and dressing up my palico buddy in ridiculous armor. And yes, my outfit includes a skull helmet, as if there was any doubt. #TeamSkullHat4EVA
Currently I'm only one or two quests into the coral forest area (soooo pretty). I'd like to do a few more of these pieces, especially the cute bubble bat monster which would be my number one pick for an adorable monster pal.
Anyone else enjoying the game? I'm always looking for an excuse to geek out over monsters.
Because I somehow forgot to post one of these last week, you get double the goodness. Hooray for forgetfulness? Ever wander into a room and forget why you came in there? The horrible abominations over at Cthulhu Slippers also have this problem from time to time.
Remember folks, a clean fridge is a fridge that probably won't try to eat you. Probably.
In the first Over-Encumbered comic we learn about Harriet's will power.
In which Yukon and Jupiter ponder life, the universe, and Venn diagrams.
I'm happy to report that this year's Month of Monsters challenge was a resounding success. Not only did I finish the self-imposed challenge, but a few other folks participated as well. I'm hoping next year will be bigger and better. :) My favorites of everyone who participated are these - but really, they are all fantastic:
My submission favorites are the following. All my monsters can be seen here.
I'm planning on coloring all of these at some point. When I do, I'll put them up in my Etsy store. If there is anything anyone wants, now is the time to make requests for specific pieces. I'll also color them by request.
There's this pretty nifty sci-fi author guy called John Scalzi. You may have heard of him. If not, well, you're missing out on some really good stories. You really should go read (or listen to) one of his books right away. At any rate, he has this book called Redshirts coming out June 5th. It's about redshirts. I know, right? I'm giddy with anticipation, but I digress. So, Scalzi decided it might be fun to have a little slideshow of fan art before the release. The only problem was that he had no fan art since the book hasn't been released yet. Being the clever fellow he is, he decided to kindly ask folks to make some fan art. There is even a contest for the best of the lot.
Making art of poor space explorers being menaced and most likely eaten, smashed, and/or disembowled - yeah, count me in.
Thus, my entry was made and sent in and lo, it came to pass that my piece had made the top five entries. Huzzah!
Granted there are four other very very nice entries to contend with. They are all glorious in their Redshirt mayhem. Voting is open until noon ET, May 29th. I'm not saying you should vote for me... well actually, I am. PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! However, I won't be put out if you like the others better. They are all fabulous.
In which the folks at the Lair get ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and find out why it's not a good idea to drink and experiment. Not that it ever stops them from doing so anyway.
