manticore progress

I didn’t want to do his snack/severed leg in any sort of ghoulish green, rotting flesh kind of colour, because nowhere to the bestiaries say that manticores are carrion eaters,(and he looks like he probably has a sensitive tummy)but it seemed wrong to do it the same colour as his face. In the end I settled for this lilacy pink, which has just enough of a hint of blue to it to look unhealthy without going the full zombie.

  1. It’s all in the details.

  2. He has come up wonderfully from the last picture you posted of him. I am looking forward to seeing him finished.

  3. I always thought manticores were probably very fussy eaters…

    • yeah, everyone thinks monsters will eat anything, but in reality they’re more like giant pandas, like “eew! I’m not eating that severed leg, he hasn’t showered for a month!”
