Illustration Friday - "Slither"

This weeks Illustration Friday topic, 'Slither', was a bit of an easy one for me, because I already had an image completed that would suit. Yay!

This one came about from a game that was suggested to me on a forum by my good friend, Boogybunny. The game involved dice and drawing silly monsters. I therefore loved it to smithereens.

The rules of this game can be found at the bottom of this post. If you do give it a shot, I would love to see the results via a link left in the comments :)

A few of the pieces generated from playing the game have actually ended up on sale at Lee Lee and the Bee, like "Goddess in the Forest" , "Honey, I'm Home" and "On Patrol" , but this one (actually my first attempt at utilising the game rules) has remained in my private collection.

So here is my entry for the topic 'Slither':


The Rules.

Apparently, this is taken from a post on the Something Awful forums, the author of which had in turn transcribed it from a role-playing book "Rifts World Book 8: Japan".

You will need a 100 sided dice (or 2 x 10 sided - one for the first digit and one for the second) or you can use this online set of roleplaying dice and clicking "roll" next to the purple d100 dice.
