the Fluxcharger Drummer

Hello there! These are designs for a DnD NPC’s band member. They’re all lightning/thunder-themed because the lead singer is an air genie. I asked my DM for advice on band members and he suggested I add one based on a fluxcharger monster, which was a good idea! I shaped the lightning arching off a charger’s head into an afro-shaped and I played around with silhouette. I thought about making them like a mermaid but the movement seemed awkward. I like the octopus version more. I thought about giving them painted tattoos but those turned out really hard to draw.

The bottom pictures are concept designs for the entire gang.
