A place for me to ramble about my art and crafting exploits.

Follow Up Monsters

I’ve had a few blog posts where I’ve mentioned redoing a monster, or doing more with one.  So I figured I’d compile them in one post.  I did them digitally because I’ve been doing mostly digital art recently – and also because I’m hoping to make sticker sheets sometime soon and these would be perfect.

First in my notes was to redo the patchwork monster from testing Ikea art supplies.

I considered using the exact colour pattern, but decided a full rainbow was more satisfying for me.

Next up was using all the ideas my friends had given me while I was testing gel crayons.  The ideas were a little complicated for that particular medium, but I wanted to use them on a different monster.

The arms are a little bit weird, but it’s still really cute.

My favourite monster from my “Sharpie” Art Challenge last week was this simple little grey guy, so he needed redoing.

I’m actually tempted to redo that whole piece digitally.  Watch this space.

I really loved the sunset gradiant of this monster from the June Scrawlr Box and wanted to recreate it digitally.

I’m not 100% happy with the gradiant.  I’d like more yellow, and a deeper red, but I haven’t quite figured out how to a gradiant properly on the programme I use on my tablet.  Maybe this one will be my first follow up follow up monster one day.

When testing out a liquid chalk marker from The Works I drew this cute little guy.  He deserved a second chance too.

Initially I decided that I was going to do this guy’s flower in pastels, but I wasn’t overly pleased with it and switched back to brights.  What do you think?


And finally, for this batch at least, is this guy.

He was in my folder of monsters to follow up, but I couldn’t for the life of me remember where he was from.  I scrolled back through all of my blogs this year and couldn’t find him.  Eventually I scrolled through my folders of half-finished blog projects.

This guy is actually a pre-emptive follow up monster.  A leading monster?  I haven’t finished his blog project yet, let alone written the blog post.  I’ll be sure to let you know when I do.

I can pretty much guarantee there’ll be more follow up monsters one day, so keep your eyes peeled.
