My tenth #Inktober drawing is a classic #DungeonWorld monster, the will-o-wisp

The cruel cruel will-o-wisp that preys on the human fear of getting lost in the dark woods. It offers the hope of a wandering stranger’s lantern, just out of earshot, only to play that hope in order to make those that are lost seal their fate. That’s dark.

I hope you like my attempt at drawing my take on this monster from the core rulebook.

I’m participating in #Inktober this year leading up to the annual 24 hour #ExtraLife game marathon that I have been running in late October with my wife for the last five years. I’m going to draw monsters, weapons, and magic items from the #DungeonWorld rulebook and from the Dungeon World Codex (http://codex.dungeon-world.com).

If you like the drawings and would like to support me in Extra Life this year, you can donate to my campaign at http://www.extra-life.org/participant/jimjones.

You have my sincere appreciation if you do.

All the money that I raise goes directly to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana. My youngest daughter, Rogue, had a life saving cranial reconstruction surgery at Riley when she was just a little over one year old. Today, she is a happy and healthy almost six year old who is thriving in kindergarten.

Let me know what you think.

  1. David thank you. I’m glad you like them.

    I haven’t done any regular focused drawing for over a decade. As it is the five year anniversary of my daughter’s life saving cranial reconstruction and the foundation of the charity game marathon that my wife and I founded to show our appreciation to the hospital that saved her, I wanted to do something different to mark the days leading up to the event.

    This exercise has been gratifying in many ways. I appreciate your comments. Take care.
