Here's the Cover Art for Pathfinder 2E's April Bestiary 2

Eight months after the launch of Pathfinder 2E, Bestiary 2 will hit store shelves - 320 pages, to add to the 400+ in Bestiary 1. Here's a look at Wayne Reynolds' cover art for the book.

"This 320-page hardcover rulebook greatly expands on the foes found in the Pathfinder Bestiary. From classic creatures like serpentfolk and jabberwock, returning favorites like the primal dragons or the Sandpoint devil, to brand new menaces sure to test even the bravest of heroes, this must-have tome of monsters designed to challenge characters of any level is an essential companion to your Pathfinder game!

It’s never too early to invite these monsters to your table, so preorder your regular or deluxe edition today!"

Here's a look at that Deluxe Edition.

I've never liked his style, particularly when compared to Brom, Barlowe, or DiTerlizzi. The mouths of too many of the bad guys look like they just bit into a particularly bitter lemon rind. Oh well...

I'll give him this: at least it's real art as opposed to digital.

Man, I have never thought of this until now, but has anyone made an encounter from the various beasties depicted on a cover of a monster manual/bestiary?
I only just thought of this as my PCs may be heading to the underdark soon and I would so love eo just show that picture as what they see/encounter. :)

Wayne’s covers aren’t striking a cord like the first edition.
8 months in and we get a second bestiary...5e was 2 years before Volos.

Also talk about lead time for the next book...with people complaining about D&Ds 4 month hints and that apparently annoying people...so does 8 months out bother them as well?

WAR is my favorite Western artist due to the angular, "crispy" feel I sense from his works.

That said, why are there only upper-torso snake people and not lower torso ones in D&D-esque works? (And no, neither the Marilith nor the Lamia Matriarch does not count, since their body types are mutable in a whole-species scale)

That cover is pretty good, but I'm overall not a fan of WAR's art style, it is very hit or miss with me. And sadly, over-saturated, ever since 4e. He might be the most prolific artist in D&D history.

Any ideas why they are talking about this right after the release of 2E? They want to show people that they plan to support the 2E in the future? I don't feel it.

I don't find it weird, not desperate. It's just a communication strategy, really different from WotC's.

And I suggest to tone down the doom and gloom. "Desperate".

What are you talking about? The Yuan-ti abomination has the lower body of a snake (at least since 4e). Or am I misunderstanding your question
