This illustration is from my Kickstarter project to create drawings of all of the friendly nonhumans and land animals from Professor M.A.R. Barker's wonderful Tékumel (aka Empire of the Petal Throne) role-playing world setting.
"This ancient race was once a proud interstellar species. Now the Ahoggya remain close to their swampy colonies in southern Salarvya or across the Straits in Haida Pakala. They are knobbly, brownish, bristly creatures 4-5 feet in height, though tremendously broad and strong. Their upper "chest" is surmounted by four powerful arms, and their eyes and eating apparatus lie beneath these under a horny protective ring. They have four thickly muscled legs. The Ahoggya are highly intelligent and speak (though with a ghastly accent). Although they are neutral and prefer to be left alone, they will rarely help men. They never help gladly, however! They fight with all ordinary and magical weapons, as men do, but prefer a jagged, curved sword, a halberd, or a composite bow."
At the end of each of these projects, I always wind up with a few prints left over due to printer overruns. I also still have some of the new originals. If you missed any, from this or any of my previous projects, check here for availability and ordering instructions: www.prismnet.com/unigames/orig…
