I’ve had monsters on the brain lately. I think it’s because a few weeks ago I posted some art from Drew Weing’s great bestiary, 33 Beasties and at about that same time I placed my own Moleskine bestiary for sale in my store. Whatever the case, I decided it’d be fun to draw some monsters. I began just doodling in my sketchbook, but in a rare moment of forward-thinking, I grabbed a piece of bristol board and did the drawing on that, which allowed me to ink the drawing with dip pen (which would have shredded a sketchbook page). I switched from brush to pens relatively recently and although I still don’t think I’ve got the hang of it completely, doing a drawing like this is only going to help me improve.
The original art for this is for sale here.
