The Kuo-Toa were no match for the Monk and her Psionic companion, but the Aboleth rising from the depths might be another matter...
I always enjoy painting fight scenes with multiple figures, and showing the monk and her psionic companion kicking ass was great fun. Typically though I like to throw in a cliffhanger, will-they-wont-they, impending moment, and i think the beastie in the background does juts that.
To help provide focus on the figures I used the slanting light light, along with strong contrast between the saturated colour of the figures and the monochromatic desaturated environment.
