October challenge WIP
As usual, posting along the way keeps me honest and feedback is always appreciated
When as a teacher you know you should probably stop the presentation, but at the same time the kid did a really really good job:

Aww man. Now I don't even want to try. This is so good! I love the oblivious know-it-all look on the girl that is presenting.
You know for a fact that she has that whole presentation board memorized.

wow, very cool! I really love the idea and your line works!
I think if the girl who did the presentation looks super excited and innocent as well, with expression "nothing wrong with a monster, it's very normal" maybe will even make it more interesting.
It's really great work! I am looking forward for next step!

@art-of-b awesome work as always... killing it again. If I had to find something, I would say the little boy that is happy, what is he holding onto? Is that the toe?

Haha! Does the monster's collar say "Munch"? Hilarious touch.
I agree with Chip the only thing I wasn't certain about was the boy holding the toe/talon. I see it a bit more defined in the sketch. Perhaps adjust it so the shape is more obvious?
Amazing work! Looking forward to your progress

I'm in love with this little girl! She gets an A+ from me
One idea to consider would be to change the heart on her shirt to a monster. Maybe a "Monsters are People Too!" t-shirt?
I cannot wait to see this develop.
@chip-valecek Thanks! Yeah, the boy's holding onto a toe/finger/monstery talon of some kind. I'm hoping it'll 'buff out' a little in the value stage
@jade-v I originally wanted it to say 'Munchkin' but it wouldn't fit easily XD
@theemkat Thanks! If you look super closely at the heart there's a toothy monstery face inside of it. I may need to change that so it reads better at that size, though (I rather enjoy the idea of 'monsters are people too')

@art-of-b Wow - super nice! For feedback i think the only thing that pops out for me is that the tail may read as the lower jaw of the creature - it did for me and even now when i have figured out that it is in fact the tail it keeps reading as being the lower jaw - the perfectly lower-jaw-like location of the tail is the main culprit i believe - it could also be that the teeth above and the bumps (osteoderms?) below look very similar and the overbite leaves a visual absence of the lower jaw making the chin look like it might be the soft palate of the monster. It might be just me though so feel free to ignore - really nice drawing!

@art-of-b Loving the details on this one!
Thanks! That tail DOES look like a curving lower jaw, doesn't it? Now i can't unsee it! XD
I think the value stage will help to clarify that it's a tail (yet more buff-outs)
Half done the values (the teacher and other kids aren't done yet) But I'm gonna have to put this away for a little bit while I do actual work so thought I'd post.
I may remove the background and keep it as a spot, too.

@art-of-b so amazing! btw, you should post it as 'drooling' for inktober challenge
@aska Naaaaaaaaaaah. I've got a different idea for 'drool'. Gotta keep it in the series
And from here it's all flattened down ('cept the linework... still need that safety line) and then rest is colour picking and painting. I think I'm gonna try and make the shadow from Munch's tail extend up on the girl and teacher's leg.

Child-based diet. That's a new one I haven't heard of yet.
Looking great as always!

I reallly love this one. Hahahaha. You are such a talent, man! The only thing that I would try is to change the expression of the little girl. She looks too confident to me. I agree with @lenwen. I have a feeling that you're going to be a finalist this month too. Lol
