    Coolest monsters!

  4. As much as I love the Invisible Maniac one, I gotta give it to Tony Ochre Jelly.

  5. Santer Klantz says:

    Is the poll this comment field? If so, I vote for #1.

  6. Dan says:

    Tom hortamanns is by far the best looking and easiest to read.

  7. Sarah says:

    I vote #1 .

  8. Cobra Surprise says:

    Hahahahaha it’s pretty great! but I feel like Cho King reminds me more of old timey horror, and goes better with the name Hinterlands. That said, wonderful job EVERYONE. They’re all so good!

  9. I don’t know, that piece by sam is pretty great…

  10. Sidecar Malone says:

    Two D&D posters? I love this group. But isn’t that the OG Players Handbook, not the Monster Manual?

  11. Jessica Shannon says:

    My Boyfriend is Tom Horstmann, creator of the Cho King. He says he refuses to solicit votes on social media. Too which I say, you never told ME I couldn’t solicit votes. C’mon guys? Help an art kid get some visibility out here. He loves the podcast.

  12. jessica says:

    I didn’t tell people to pick you I just think you spend a whole lot of time and patience on it AND it’s the only original piece, apart from the hilarious D and D in number 1. I wanted to show the guys how much you put into this contest. HOURS.

  13. Jessica Shannon says:

    These are awesome. Horstmann’s still my favorite (I’m dating him so it has to be. Also I genuinely like it) but I love the first one too. Still hope Tom wins, because he’s trying to be an artist for a living and this would be nice exposure. That being said, I have already resigned myself to the fact that we are probably going to be poor forever, and Tony’s poster is really funny. At least he will have lost to a really good one.

    Put down one for the Cho King.

  18. yeh says:

    5 Tomhorstmann’s I like the color

  19. Gus Chang says:

    I vote #5, Thomas horstmann’s post was simple and clear in text, and uses 5 figures of real person drawings in 4 key steps in treatments, very precise and powerful presentations.

  20. Adam T says:

    If you choose one that’s in ALL CAPS I suggest changing it into sentence case so that it can be read faster.
