Monstervember 2019 Day 9 Cute

Monstervember 2019 Day 9 Cute

It’s the cute Prompt of Monstervember and look how cute Jason is with his unicorn shirt and smiling friends.

My wife asked what’s wrong with me? Cause she knows I can draw cute. But it’s monstervember and I can’t do serious cute right now. It has to be satire in its nature.

 

Monstervember 2019 Day 8 Hammer

Monstervember 2019 Day 8 Hammer

It’s Monstervember Day 8 and we have a heck of a story going on in today’s sketch. Our main character a female adventurer is struggling with the shock of what she just had to do. This adventure has brought much turmoil and pain and has reached a major climax of having to take out a horrid tentacle beast with a massive hammer. Pure adrenaline allowed our adventurer to lift such a massive hammer and smash the beasts head in. But it has taken it’s toll on her and she is exhausted and her nerves are shot.

I tried some highlights and shadows with this one and they turned out pretty cool. Probably still not correct but practice makes perfect.

See you tomorrow for Day 9, Cute. 

Monstervember 2019 Day 6 Thin

Monstervember 2019 Day 6 Thin

It’s Monstervember Day 6 and the nuclear apocalypse has been quite hard on poor little benny. He’s gone all thin from hunger and is turning into a crazed feral ghoul. Wouldn’t want to run into him on the lonesome road in the wasteland.

See you tomorrow for Day 7, Puffy.

Monstervember 2019 Day 5 Sticky

Monstervember 2019 Day 5 Sticky

Today’s monstervember prompt was Sticky. So we have a newly born monster hatching out of an egg. It’s all covered in sticky slimey goo and is slowly freeing itself from its sticky prison. Kind of has some Lovecraft inspiration with the tentacles and such. Played around with some colored pencils for this one today.

See you tomorrow for Day 6, Thin.

 

Monstervember 2019 Day 4 Shoe

Monstervember 2019 Day 4 Shoe

May want to be careful where you buy shoes from. You may end up “footloose” Gorey puns you can’t ask for anything more cringe worthy.

I tried messing with shadows being cast at an angle on the ground. Didn’t quite work out correctly but I’m trying.

Let’s see what I can come up with for tomorrows Prompt, Sticky.

Monstervember 2019 Day 3 Swordfish

Monstervember 2019 Day 3 Swordfish

Below the depths marches a dreadful thing. It’s neither live nor dead, but it has a determined look on it’s face and is displaying two deadly swordfish skeleton swords.

It’s day 3 of Monstervember and today I decided to try out a new media I haven’t messed with in quite awhile. Probably haven’t made a piece of art with pastels since middle school. I had gathered quite a collection of clearance art supplies from back to school sales over the years. So I decided to try it out today.

I used some black paper and drew out what I wanted in pencil. Then I tried first coloring with some soft pastels. Wasn’t getting the nice detail I wanted though. I tried using charcoal pencils to add outlines after the coloring but it wasn’t working for me. So I switched to oil pastels. Never messed with them before, but got better results once I learned the correct pressure and smudging technique to get the look I wanted. So this is a massive hybrid of soft and oil pastels with white and black charcoal pencils adding detail lines.

Gotta say this turned out pretty darn cool. The undead pirate looks terrifying and I even manged to get the perspective of it marching forward with the perspective size difference in the legs.

Will see what  I can come up for tomorrows prompt, Shoe.

Monstervember 2019 Day 1 Sail

Monstervember 2019 Day 1 Sail

I’m starting a new art challenge for the month of November. It’s called Monstervember!

This one is a challenge prompt that’s brand new this year, and I hope that people will join in and have fun with it. It’s not about doing daily drawings, it’s about having fun and improving your art skills with practice. And making cool monsters.

Today is Day 1 and the prompt is sail. Nothing can make one want to drop their sails and make haste across the open ocean like being chased by a Kraken.

Feel free to join in on this challenge. You don’t have to be a pro artist and you can make the prompt with any art media you want. Join the facebook group or just use #monstervember. So we can find your art and give it all the love it deserves.
