Here I’m refining the design of the Icthyss elite guard and the crustaceans their armour is made from.
I’d been thinking about drawing a Sunken World Tavern scene for ages, it’s a Fantasy cliché but that’s fine, I liked the idea. Alongside a sneak peak at some special weapons for the Icthyss Shore Raiders there’s a cast of characters I’ve inked in.
Here are a few sketches from my A6 sketchbook which I use when travelling by train or bus. The first are ideas I had for my Icthyss (fish-man) elite body guards and executioners. Their armour
is made from crustaceans that have been thaumaturgically-modified to be tougher (by their Thulhid masters). I realise they are literally lobster-tailed pot helmets but I like that!

The weapons are fearsome two handed bladed weapons (similarly created from mutant sea creatures) vaguely like the one the Ottoman executioner wields in Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988).

More on these creatures soon!
Next I’ve got an idea for a scarecrow miniature to lead a unit of zombies or skeletons, doodles of a wizard’s familiar (sort of a gecko/newt creature) and on the opposite page are some sketches of a Sunken World character, my Sea Ranger character I was working on. (Sea ranger sketches)
As promised here’s the next character for my Sunken World adventuring party, a thief with concealed daggers, climbing rope, caltrops, throwing knives and reinforced leather armour disguised with the same pattern on the rest of her clothes.
I’ve finally got round to putting more of my artwork on this website, I’m sorry it’s been so long!
I always have a few projects on the go; here are some more Sunken world images: a Sunken World character I created a couple of years ago; one of those images I needed a little bit of free time to finish off.
She’s a Raktos, (Raktos and Yrdin) a race of horn-headed humanoids who are rumoured to be half-demonic and they do little to dispel that rumour. Many of them do possess magical powers so I drew a couple of flames on her fingertips. She is accompanying the warrior who I posted a while back on my Facebook Page:
I’ve ideas for the rest of this adventuring group which I shall post next time.
