Rakosh Feeding

This is a illustration I did for the boarders at www.repairmanjack.com. One of Repairman Jack's main protagonists is this monster, known as a Rakosh. I had never seen an illustration of a Rakosh that I felt was accurate to their description in the books (neither on the book covers or anywhere else on the internet) so I spent a lot of time narrowing down the design before beginning my painting. It got a thorough thumbs up from all the people in the official forum, and I even had a nice approving message from F Paul Wilson him self, author of the Repairman Jack books and creator of the Rakoshi.
