Misunderstood Monster WIP

  • @nyrrylcadiz one more for no#1. Great concept and comp. Please please take it further 🙂

  • @nasvikdraws hi! Thanks! Yeah i’m planning to expand that illustration such that it will show the girl’s entire room, showing tiny monsters just like the one in the sketch, hiding in nooks and crannies and what not, hinting that what he’s actually doing may not be because he likes the girl but is actually a making a diversion for his friends. I think that concept will raise more confusion on what his real motives are which in turn will trully make him a misunderstood monster. Phew! I hope that wasn’t too wordy. Lol

  • I like number one. It's definitely got a lot of potential for dramatic lighting. That cat chasing after the mouse Hansel and Gretel is just amazing, though!

  • I like one but the silhouette of the kid could read better so you know what she is holding

  • Yeah, i like nr 1 a lot too, it have very sharp values, but i also liked nr 2 with it storytelling 😃

  • @nyrrylcadiz Another vote for number one. Love your ideas though 😃

  • @sas @rcartwright @Art-of-B @Ailantan thanks ror the support guys. I’m very happy you like the sketches.

    I’ve been working on sketch one and so far this is what i came up with.


    I’ve also been working on number two. The one wih the with witch cat and mice hansel and gretel. I’ve been playing with the colors and i really like how .they’re turning out. Here’s what i’ve worked on.


    Working on number 2, i’m finding myself liking it more and evevn considering using it as my entry. I’m not really sure though. What do you guys think? Should i keep on working on #1 or should i go with #2 instead? I would definitely love to know what you guys think. Thank you!

  • @nyrrylcadiz I love the colors you’ve used for number two! Although this one is really great looking too, my eyes kind of lean more towards number one because there’s more mystery in that picture. Also more to see, more to take in. My brain goes to wonder what will happen next.

  • I like number one more now 😃

  • @Sas @Ailantan thanks! I guess i’ll have to work on #1 more as well. I still haven’t decided which to use but i guess i’ll just have to finish both and decide from there. Again, thank you!

  • Hi, guys! I know some of you might be mad at me for posting this since you prefer option #1 but i just can’t resist working more on sketch #2. It’s just more apealling for me. Also since i’ve been seeing a few entries similar to #1, a monster giving a flower/gift/something to a girl or vice versa, I’m afraid sketch #1 is getting too common. It’s a also making me recons9der if i should go through with it. My main goal for these monthly competitions is to have a new portfolio worthy piece but having a little exposure here and there also wouldn’t hurt.

    So, below are some color comps for sketch 2. I’m leaning more to that pink one at the bottom. What do you guys think?


  • I’ve been trying to finish it, too. If time permits, i’ll make another piece similar to option #1 but with a slightly dufierrent concept. Then, i’ll let you guys decide which one i should use for the contest. I hope you like this. It’s still a work in progress. Please let me know your thoughts and critiques. They’re highly appreciated.
