Yes, they were. I looked at images in a packet of art we bought and created stats for the 30 that inspired me the most at the time. The stats were inspired by the art, not vice versa. This does of course mean that the 22 monsters that aren't traditional (you've already seen the chimera, giant, and strix here) are a wild grab-bag of stuff with names that aren't going to help you much, like . . .
