Below are more original pictures of mine (well, the head for the demon was based on a demon in a book I had as a child and then the
Nautiloid was based on a prehistoric creature that really existed on Earth and the idea for the skeleton face came from a childhood
book on drawing monsters). Click on the thumbnails to enlarge. Click on each image's label for more information. Warning! Don't try to
eat the fruit of the spider tree!
T&T Demon - Baalzebub?
Below are some of my freehand renditions of pictures from other sources. The Kelpie is a demon from Scottish myth. The Yara Mar was
from a book I read as a child. The T&T Demon is my rendition of the demon from the inside front cover of Tunnels and Trolls (I don't know
who the original artist was) - in the original a wizard is summoning him from a puff of smoke, with the help of a magic circle. Adramelech is a
picture that I have seen various people reproduce, of a mediaeval demon who personified false glory, pride and vanity.
The Mindless Ones appeared in a 1975 Marvel comic I had as a child, these giants were about 30 metres tall and created their own path
through the Astral Plane. This is possibly a reference to the Empty Ones said to dwell there. Those old comics are full of wonderful creatures
and fabulous art work that have been forgotten by most.
Myrmicolion: a mythical creature with the head of a lion
and the body of an ant. However this unfortunate
creature was generated, they were short-lived, since
the lion head's appetite for meat caused it to consume
food that the ant body could not digest, and so it
eventually died of indigestion! (Don't ants eat meat?)
Mindless Ones: 'Riding a path from nowhere' these
astral giants destroy all in their path. Each one towers
some 30 or 40 metres in height. Perhaps these are
reminiscent of the Qlippoth - shells or empty ones that
astral travellers claim to encounter,
The mighty Euserytus is demon lord of the dark
forests of the nightmare realm. Towering over
12 feet in height with fiery-red glowing eyes and
fire-snorting nostrils, Euserytus is a terrifying
sight to behold!
With glowing bodies clothed in black
flames that both freeze and burn to the
touch and the ability to breath fire and
cast fireballs, Greater Fire Demons
make formidable opponents!
Assuming their prime form, pestilence
demons are towering skeletal forms
with insect-like heads and are clothed
in poisonous heavy smoke which
constantly pours from their bodies!
These polymorphic entities originate from a
world trapped in the bridge between the normal
Universe and the Mystic Realm, a pocket of
spacetime where physical laws differ
considerably from the familiar.
Relations of prehistoric forms familiar from
fossils on Earth, the Nautiloids are intelligent
bioluminescent beings that inhabit the inner
and outer abyssal zones, dwelling in strange
but beautiful spiral cities.
The Yara Mar of legend lived in trees,
dropping down on unsuspecting victims
which they could swallow whole with their
The legendary Kelpie could assume
the form of a horse, where they would
wait near rivers and lochs, tempting
travellers to ride them across, at which
point they would drown their poor
A demon of this description once graced the
cover of the Tunnels and Trolls FRP game.
Being summoned by a magician it began to
materialise out of smoke. Its insect-like head
suggests it to be a pestilence demon or
perhaps the Lord of Flies himself!
