Here's another cool piece from artist Anthony Watkins. When Anthony asked me to paint this and the Fraust Wyrm (see previous post), he asked me if I could paint the big horned beast so that it looked like it lived in a snowbound waste. I thought it was a great suggestion, and I'm glad he proposed the idea. So much so, that I decided to also paint the dragon trophy with an icy theme as well.
I took a few photos and realized that if I was going to call it the Arctic Blood Beast I really needed to add some choking bloody ribbons inside that gaping maw. So I did. Lots of it, too. I imagined that the brute sawed through some flabby seal-like creature that was taking a nap on an ice covered rock with that terrible mouth.
