Yet another illustration for my sister's book. She wanted me to help her dream up another unfriendly creature to inhabit the Forest. So I did. Literally. Yeah, I had a dream about these things... This is the closest I've gotten to drawing one. Velspharin look something like long-legged, emaciated hounds, with a face like a piranha or a bulldog skull, and batlike wings. They can't fly far or high, but they can lift themselves off the ground, and sometimes pounce down on prey from overhanging tree branches. They're usually dark, either all black or rather mottled black and dark brown, but I haven't shown that here.
