Misunderstood Monster WiP



  • Hey, It's Natalia here, i would like to show my little thumbnail.
    My idea was monster under the bed, which is repairing toys left on floor.
    Im gonna change design of monster i think, cause i was thinking about more shadowy presence with more arms.
    Feedback always welcome.

  • Cool idea! Are you looking for feedback? If not that's totally fine. Just wondering.



  • @tessaw Yes, Im looking for feedback ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



  • @ailantan hi! What a fun idea! Love your concept! It does feel like itโ€™s leaning a bit to the left. Donโ€™t know if thatโ€™s with purpose or not? Also, the bed looks a bit small and thin with such a big monster underneath it.



  • Hi there! Love the concept! Wondering if there's a reason for the symmetry? I feel as if it would flow better if you kept the bed where it is and maybe the tent. But shift the kid to the left, and the monster to the bottom right, and it might create a natural flow down the page. Maybe the kid is in profile so we can better see how they are scrunched up scared? I already really like how you naturally have this feeling at the top of something is wrong, but then at the bottom this surprising and pleasant payoff with the monster fixing toys. I'm excited to see the next steps on this piece!



  • @Sas @emilym Thank you for your time, it's amazing feedback ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I will try my best, thanks again for your help, those are really helpfull ๐Ÿ˜ƒ



  • After watching creative composition i decided to make some more thumbnails. Feedback is alwazs welcome.0_1539444792183_thumbnails.png



  • If I were to choose one thing that improved my art the most it would be due diligence with the thumbnails.

    Nice work so far. I'm intrigued by #6 ๐Ÿ™‚



  • For number #6 It's monster mix of horns, owl, fur and moth antennae.0_1539537571244_Thumbnail 6 final.png When I look at it now I don't think like that I would show it to any kid xD But it was fun to draw. I will try one of the first thumbnails with rooms now.



  • Hi there,
    Really lovely idea about a monster who fixes broken toys, it reminds me of the John Lewis 'Moz the Monster' advert, definitely worth a watch on Youtube for inspiration if you haven't seen it!
    Looking at your thumbnails, I really like the feel of #1 with the lighting coming through the window and the arms of the monster under the bed. I think you could really do a lot with this, especially as we can see more of how scared the child is. It also gives you a bit more room in the composition to show more of the monster fixing toys.
    Also #3 is a nice composition too, maybe the child in the tent has a torch so you could create some nice lighting and silhouettes there.

    Looking forward to seeing where you take this next ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
