More monster fun

Another little monster her name is Violet. I personally don't think she came out as nice as Max but o well. This monster was a completely digital one oppose to Max which I worked from a basic pencil sketch.

here be monsters...

Well its been a busy week started a new fitness kick, lost 2 pounds when I was last weighed on Sunday so waiting to Saturday to see If I have lost anymore fingers crossed..
And apart from that MONSTERS! Be entered into the Lets Draw Monsters new mascot contest so here's my entree Monster Max! The conditions for contest was cute and simple so I hope he'll win the judges over with that cheeky grin. This was a redo of a piece I did on Tegaki recently, and drawing in photoshop cs2.
In other art news have completed my resent commission to do a series of pieces illustrating a short story, did 10 A3 paintings although but have chosen to redo one of them as I have a spare 3 weeks before deadline. So now with those projects out of the way time to return to the poster project!

Joined Tegaki E to see what all the fuss was about and was.. surprised. The interface and principle is simple, a forum/blog using pictures any skill level any subject. So far have not got involved in the community but enjoying the simple tools ( the lack of layers can get frustrating) but to quickly spring out ideas and sketches its a lot of fun. Going to use the site for ideas and also testing my skill at fast digital images and creating work without the safety net of a layer of pencil line art.(left)
In other news still working on the "man who painted the world" illustrations decided to add one more imagine to the piece, thus now just two more paintings to go.
Also completed the rough pencil sketches of the re-do of the Neo-horror poster from 1998-0, and working on several cute monster designs for the lets draw monsters logo competition (left)
