Bored... What should I draw?

Lets imagine for a moment that you had access to a bored artist who had just returned from a Summer vacation at Kingsport and was in need of some inspiration... Specifically for pen and ink drawings ranging from teenytiny to A3.

What image would you request?

Teenytiny Rat-Thing, perhaps something you might have glimpsed over in the fish-packing district in K'port?

Bit of a rushed job I'm afraid, but here you go...

A shoggoth with a crazy amount of tentacles?
In the morning, mist comes up from the sea by the cliffs beyond Kingsport. White and feathery it comes from the deep to its brothers the clouds, full of dreams of dank pastures and caves of leviathan.

Cheers Thomas,

One insanely poly-tentacular Shoggoth coming up... Hopefully in 12 hours from posting this message.

I love your rat-thing. There's a lot of personality in there.

Another idea is to find a scene in a live play game you like and draw that.

Thanks Keeper Dan!

I will consider that... Any recommendations?

Unfortunately the Shoggy pic is taking a little longer as real life got in the way today... Grrrr.

Hopefully I'll finish, scan and post in a few hours time.

Re: Bored... What should I draw?

From just the one pic, I'm not sure what your strengths are. Are you good with people and full scenes? Action?
If you wanted to do something iconic from our own MUP games, maybe Richard tossing luggage out of a train car window with a shocked Wally looking on. I have no idea if that's in your wheelhouse though.
Another idea is to just do your rendition of characters or monsters. What do you think a Byakhee or Mi-go look like? I'm always interested in people's interpretations.
