Monster Monday- November 25, 2013

This week I drew an Owl Bear that was a request from twitter. Owl Bears are from Dungeons and Dragons and have been included in other games as well. For some reason, I never faced an Owl Bear in any D&D adventures, usually it was goblins or huge monsters. And I miss not being able to play D&D weekly, but I am hoping with the new gaming/comic store down the street will have games going on.

Any way, for my Owl Bear, I played with more of the owl aspect instead of drawing a bear then stick an owl face on it. For the arms I added feathers and gave the body a feather like feeling. The claws are similar to a bear and the head is obviously influenced by an owl, it is an owl…bear…. The head has ‘horns’ are like a horned owl and a larger beak then a normal owl. The beak was inspired by eagles. 

I think the redesign is interesting and might even take my owl design into a finished spot illustration for a monster manual type book for RPGs.

  1. A friend of mine recently used your drawing as a visual aid for our D&D campaign. He modified it but made sure we knew where it had come from originally. I really like the drawing and would love to use it as a background for an audio recording of our recent session. Would you mind if I did? It would be the modified image and a link to this post would be included whenever it is used. Here is a link to a previous post so you can see what he did with it (it’s spinning owlbear advertising a pub, his name is cupcake) http://mediablastblog.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/joint-venture-session-one-our-first-day-in-neverwinter/ . If you have any problem with it I will take the image down immediate, but I kind of love it and would be happy to have him as a mascote for our campaign. Let me know what you think!
