I'm starting a new campaign soon and my character has a familiar, which my DM said I could make my own cat Lily in angel/tressym form. If anyone feels like drawing her, I'd appreciate it very much ^^
Lily when she was little, about 1 year here
A much older Lily she's nearly 10 here :)
I was wondering if anyone can draw me an old axolotl with a mid chest level white beard sitting at a tavern table. I’m hoping for a haunted I’ve seen some shit kinda look to him but I’m happy with anything I can show my players
Isis is a spirit from the Elemental Plane of Air that took a physical form in order to protect and accompany my player's ranger, who is a hunter and an explorer, so it only makes sense that her companion took a form fitted for such activities.As a spirit her form is influeced by the Elemental Plane, and so her scales are grey with blue lightning bolts decorating her body.Avatar's Banshees are a great starting point, but her head would be more like that of the little guy in the pictures, without the banshee appendages on top of the head, and a smarter expression.
As you can see this is heavily homebrewed so we're having trouble finding references, but I just wanna give my player a full experience since it's her first time playing D&D and she chose this companion herself. Thank you so much in advance!
Edit: Thought I added images but apparently I didn't, should be good now.
Lightning bolts decorating her body
Friendly looking reptilian head
My Circle of Stars Druid knows Summon Beast and Conjure Animals. My DM has allowed me to flavor the summoned animals as starry animals similar to his familiar/star map who is a creature covered with stars and constellations, as if all of reality is a film held against the night sky and his form has been punched out of said film. My druid character with his familiar/star map can see seen here. I'm looking for animals with the same vibe as the creature on his shoulder. They don't have to be very big since they'll be for VTT tokens but I would like to have some nice looking art to show off.
The creatures I'd like (but feel free to draw any animal you like) are:
rothé (an animal like a musk ox)
