B is for the Blob

Here's page 2 in my sons new monster ABC book.  B was a tough one, there were quite a few options to choose from, Blob(obviously) Bigfoot, Boogeyman, Bride of Frankenstein, etc.  Blob was the one I wanted to do most howeer.  Next up CTHULHU!  Enjoy.

A is for Arachnid

We just had a new baby boy born into our family a little over two weeks ago.  It's so fun having a new baby around.  I decided I wanted to make a little book for him, and subsequently have some art we can hang in his room (when he get's one).  I've been toying with the idea of an ABC book for awhile.  the whole idea is intriguing to me.  to take each letter of the alphabet and have a unique illustration for it.  I've always been into monsters and this seemed like a fun chance.  this is the first one I did.  A is for Arachnid.  Hopefully I will have plenty more of these coming up.  I've managed to find a monster that matches most letters in the alphabet but there are a few that are stumping me.  If anyone has any specific ideas feel free to share.  enjoy.

Stretching Tiger

Here's another tiger sketch.  I tried to push the pose on this one and really stretch the forms.  I need to work on posing my drawings a bit better, it helps sell the story of who this character is.  enjoy.

Here's another of those big cats I've been drawing.  I have a feeling there are plenty more tigers to come.  I'm having too much fun drawing all those stripes.  Enjoy.

Lion sketch

Started a new sketchbook recently.  I often do theme sketch books.  I've had an alligator sketchbook, an elephant, zombies, sharks, monkeys.  I like them because they force me to go beyond my comfort zone.  After the third or fourth alligator I had to try and find new answers to "what does this alligator look like?"  I'm really excited about this one.  It's going to be all big cats, which actually may wind up being 90% tigers cause those stripes are so fun to draw.  anyway, the first one that turned out to my liking was a lion.  threw on some quick color for you.  enjoy.
