Illustration Friday - MONSTER


I had four hours to draw Gerald in the same pose in life drawing. However the end result was lifeless – my two minute sketches turn out much better. However, all was not lost as I decided not to waste all that time-consuming shading and used some Photoshop trickery to turn the drawing into my Illustration Friday Monster.

Ha! Poor Gerald! But hey, the shading IS cool!! And you certainly can't call this "lifeless"!

Very nice picture, good 2 heads, but i have to ask, whats the point of him being naked? Does that make him more monstarly?

Hi hashi and bubblegum, thanks for visiting. Prettyricky, no the nudity was just because the original 'lifeless' life drawing was a nude.
