John Howe's take on Grendel

John Howe, who is currently probably best known as one of the imagineers of Middle Earth, produced a number of illustrations for a Beowulf boardgame eight or so years back.

You can see many of the wonderful, dramatic paintings on his website here.

I'm particularly interested in his take on Grendel, as the look of the monster is something I am very aware I need to get right for my own project, whilst at the same time making him seem fresh and new.
