collage-57

Magical beings are usually depicted as ancient, bearded wizards or tall, well-built warriors. After all, slaying animals or casting powerful spells requires guts and talent. Rudy Siswanto, a Hong Kong-based illustrator, decided to turn our preconceptions on their heads by portraying them as babies.

From Medusa to Minotaur and beyond, these guys all appear badass, yet they’re also so youthful that you can’t help but imagine them napping in the middle of a serious search.

Siswanto, an Indonesian native, is currently employed by Riot Games as a splash artist. This series, on the other hand, is from a few years ago. “Baby Beastiary is a client project from when I was working at Caravan Studio,” Siswanto told Bored Panda. “It was for Metal Weave Games’ crowdfunding initiative.” They had a concept for an RPG book about infant creatures, and I helped them out with the visuals.”

Siswanto was not the only artist involved in the project. “I worked on volume 1 and 2 the most, and I assisted with art direction.”
