I spent a week painting various monsters that could appear in my Allied Enemies universe. Although I stripped each painting of any lore storytelling elements, it was a good practice for composition and color, something I felt I really needed.
First is the Bog Guardian. It is a Yajsaad seeder that transplants life from one planet to another. This will explain the mystery in my story when Humanity discovers other human civilization on other planets.
Next is the Desert Guardian, a giant tunnel snake from the Olandrian Empire. These played a part in my high school script that was eventually cut and molded into the story I have now. It makes a small appearance in Allied Enemies.
Here is the Sea Guardian, a monster that never appears in Allied Enemies. If it did, it would be in the oceans of Fontia.
Next I have the Beach Guardian. This creature is passive an appears on the beaches of Fontia. I am not sure if they appear in Allied Enemies or not. They have no impact on the story.
One of my favorites, the Ice Guardian. This is the Detoshian Yeti Spider that appears frequently in Allied Enemies. They originate on Detoshia but are captured and sold to to Earth militaries. Earth United uses a domesticated version for military purposes, mostly for homeland security as they are not weapons.
Next is another Yajsaad creature/ship, the Jungle Guardian. This one really has nothing to do with jungles as it is simply a Yajsaad scout. It may make an appearance at the end of Allied Enemies.
Lastly, I present the Sky Guardian. This is a common flying creature from the Olandrian Empire. It is harmless to the story but does appear in the skies.
I have at least one more that is unfinished. Maybe I will add it here at a later time.
