Lygharden by Khorghil
This is a Rework from the Illustration below (2009). I kicked the background and out some rain on it so the lighteffects works more well. The Tentakel of the Lygharde (yes thats now the name of the female monster) got some energielines. All in all this is much more a Khorghil-Illustration than the old one and i hope you like this erotical deathtrap so much as i do. And again... R.I.P to this young man who loosed his head (and face) ;-)

Rhowen by Khorghil
Rhowen! by Khorghil
Just one more monster culture of my world Khorghil. They called the Rhowen and they are the only non-animal Culture wich is able to fly. This and the fact that they are nightactive predators are the only background-information yet. I have to write more down but i dont have a spicy good idea. Perhaps you have? Then please write it down below. :-)

i hope you like my "Batman-Vampire-Harpyes-whatever"  ;-)

After years of creating my world "Khorghil" and after publishing most of my work here on DA, there is a new home for my child created:
(or just typing in your browser)

This is the german HP about myself and my best friends wich are helping to write down my dreams. When you enter the HP just click on "Projekte" (Projects) and then on the big box "Grundbuch".
There you will find ALL TEXT and ALL ILLUSTRATIONS about Khorghil. Of course it is all written in german but all the pretty welcome Non-German-Speakers will find some Picture treasure, wich are not published here in DA :-)

I would love to meet you there at my blog!

Hello Markus,

I see that some of your works are under Creative Commons licence. Could you confirm that ? I would like to use some of your illustrations in a non commercial roleplaying game.

I need a map for my novel 'Ages of Aenya'. I am interested to know what you charge for this kind of work. Thanks.
