Sahuagin (lizard monster) concept art for The Forgotten Realms (Dungeons & Dragons).
Probably the Blizzard's inspiration for Mrghrghlgrlhlrglhlglhl Murlocs. Nice work
what do you do this with pen?
Isn't more of a fish monster than a lizard?
I think the wide shoulders and small tail give it a landlubber's shape. I'd rather it have a more fluid, aquatic profile. I know that may resemble many other sahuagin concepts, but I'm sure there's a fresh way of portraying it. I dig the head and the wet look, though.
i always thought the Sahuagin should be more like shark people than reptilian, but still...
I believe both 3rd and 4th edition had a picture of sahuagin that was really cool, this isnt quite on par.
Hi Folks, the "lizard monster" category of concept art was just a wide ranging category to cover all the fish-like, lizard-like, frog-like, snake-like etc. humanoids and variations of those. Sorry for any confusion.
too thin legs
I like it.
Between the Yuan-ti (snake), Kuo-Toa (fish), and Sahuagin (also fish), someone has a pretty broad (and incorrect) definition of lizard.
The kuo-toa and sahuagin are indeed fish and not lizards (thus a few doors back, to the side and forward), but describing the Yuan-ti as lizard monsters would be broadly correct. Serpentes is a "subsidiary branch" of Squamata, where lizards sit within Reptilia.
Troll somewhere else, EldricIV. You realize this is fantasy, right?
