Swamp Man

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Fantasy: This guardian is representing a seldom seen species of humanoids, living in and near stagnant waters. They are as tall as elves, but their origin is far from elven. In the dawn of history, most developing creatures left the waters and set out for adventures on dry land. However, a certain fraction of the forgotten species, from which fish, lizards and dragons origin, realized the wonders of these warm, damp places, and developed a civilisation, which has remained small, but powerful within the sanctuary of marshes. Reality: At school, I whipped up a crude sketch of what would have become a simple lizardman, but when it came to the details, I had no idea how it should have been. Remebering the FARP tutorial on merfolk which said that merfolk could have gills, I drew gills to my poor creation. After seeing how well they fit the creature, the ideas started coming... The result: 40% lizard, 40% fish, 20% human, 100% made-by-me. :)
