kid creatures

this week’s drawer geeks was pretty fun. we had to take a child’s drawing of a monster and attempt to re-illustrate it to look like well… a monster. the tricky part of this was to maintain the consistency of the original drawing as much as possible.


the drawing i based mine off of was done by the extremely talented hailey rose smith. she actually drew me fifteen completely orginal ideas that i had to choose from! she’s bound for artistic stardom.

this concept is originated by the amazing dave devries, where you can see him doing a far better job of this then i ever could over at his monster engine site.

    Wow, that’s such a great idea. If only monsters Inc. came up with the idea of having children to design first!
    Very cute stuff.
