Shade Mother Critical Role

Critical Role fanart of the scene presented at the end of campaign 3 episode 15. Deep in a mine where shade creepers lurk, Lady Emoth Kade reaches up towards the slug-like creature that birthed them and says: "Mother, we have visitors."

This creature design comes from the imagination of Matt Mercer, and I painted the concept based on his description. It felt very Dark Souls/Elden Ring (which I love) and so I tried to capture that asthetic. :)

Process. The overall design of the creature came together super fast as I had a very clear idea of what it needed to look like. No sketch to show.
