Stock Monsters


A collection of art works I've done over the years, mostly for contests and the like. A few were commissioned for a video game project that appears to be no longer in development.

This collection offers 10 full-color illustrations of pretty standard monsters, including a giant spider, an angry horned guy swinging an axe, a creepy-looking worm and many more. Most are at pretty high resolution, all yours to use in whatever DMs Guild projects you like (Please credit me as Doug Snook, or "the Grumbleputty", I answer to either). Also, please send me a copy of whatever you create at

Can these be used in non-DMs Guild products? For example, I create some PWYW pieces over on DriveThruRPG and am always on the look out for quality art for the covers. Obviously, I would still credit you and send you a copy as per your request in the product description. Thanks.

Thanks Dave! I'm comfortable with these being used on DMs Guild or DriveThruRPG projects, basically this whole suite of sites. Outside of here I'd need to think about on a case-by-case basis.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
