This is a Digital Illustration of the Orkeldor by Christina Cartwright who did it for me on commission.
The Orkeldor is a creature I invented over a span of several months from 1979 through 1981 while feeling a bit paranoid and recovering from a nasty divorce.
The creature, as I imagined it, is the size of an American Bison (also called a "Buffalo") but it is carnivorous, with claws like a bear, but tough as titanium, a head like a wolf, intelligence greater than that of an average human, and a voracious appetite for human flesh.
I commissioned digital artist, Christina Cartwright to do an illustration for me. Her rendition has a head that is a little more reptilian than I had imagined, but she got the rest quite accurate to my vision of the beast.
