Illustration Friday: Monster


This topic is so hard because there are just soo many posibilities. You can't just draw one. Here is a page of doodles drawn during a meeting over the weekend. I have a busy week ahead of me so, I don't think I'll have time for much more than this. Enjoy.

Cute monsters!! LOVE the double-headed guy! LOL! Hmmm...you were doodling these at a meeting...eh? Your meeting mates weren't your inspiration...were they? :) Awesome as usual!

Funny! I especially like the octopus and the guy with his tongue sticking out.

You should've been a monster designer for "Monsters Inc." the movie. Was this meeting filled with suits and ties? I think I need to bring my sketchbook to those meetings each week too. Good luck with work this week. I'm drowning in educational book sketches myself. Ugh!

Excellent monsters, all of them.

Great monster gathering! Very creative and detailed.

Great doodles! Must have been one heck of a meeting to be able to envision these things. Nice job!

JO said...

It would be hard to decide which monster to pick...yours are so cool.

Thanks for all of your comments. I gotta come clean--the meeting was at church. It's a really great place to draw. These monsters weren't inspired by any of the people there. I just started some mindless scribbling and this is what came out.

Awesome monsters! I stumbled upon your illustrations from the illustration friday page and just wanted to let you know I love your work and you have inspired me to start drawing again, didn't think I'd ever love drawing on paper again. Thanks!

Looks like you had a great time creating these monsters, Guy. Love them all. You can write a little profile for your monsterous friends next.

Hans said...

Wow, great blog. Amazing character designs and coloring all over!

Your doodles are fabulous! You've come up wioth quite a stable of monsters...perhaps you'll treat us to a full color version of one. I wouldn't be able to choose which one, though; they're all really cool!

Geninne said...

LOVE...LOVE...LOVE!!!
Extra funny as usual :-)
The coolest doodles ever...

Angela said...

These guys, or maybe also gals?, are great!
I see someone ended up buried like in last week's 'feet' illio. Good stuff!!

Bron Smith said...

Greata line drawings of the monsters. They would look great in color. Keep up the great work.

georg said...

I love your monsters - they have personality! The details, depth in the image too is fine - great!

Fossfor said...

i love your monster gang,especially the fat one with the striped tummy and tongue hanging out!

Don said...

It seems a natural law that whenever there is a two-headed onster, one head has to be a bit doofy. :-) I like the two on the lower right best. The boarish-looking one is cool, too. Fun characters all.

Chickengirl said...

So hard to choose which one I like the best! I think I like that floatin' octopus brain monster with lobster claws. Very cool.

Dave James said...

These dudes are FUN! Nice work.

Drazen said...

I didn't have time to finish my ideas up
but I will goshdarnit sometime
