What's that you say? You'd like me to design a creature based on a shrimp? Okay!

That was the genesis of this fellow, known as a Craud, who appeared in a D&D Monster Manual. There are few things I enjoy drawing more than monsters, especially when I can make one up from scratch.

I just wanted to share this guy. I'll have another update tomorrow!


  1. I really like how you handled the water. Amazing translucence. The shrimp is cool too ;) I am always amazed at the diversity of species when I research something like a shrimp. So many different cool ones.

  2. It's amazing how different some of them are from one another. If I remember correctly, this guy was based on a mantis shrimp.

    I'm glad you liked the water. That was the toughest part of the picture to execute!
