My illustration of The Crawling Eye

I crawled back to posting work on my blog.  This is an illustration of a monster movie creature.  The Crawling Eye is a 1958 horror movie that involves some giant eye monsters attacking a small Swiss resort town.

Jabberwocky #INKTOBER #INKTOBER2018

Another illustration I created for Inktober 2018.  I looked at the original art by Tenniel from his famous illustration of Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky.  I always thought the creature was terrifying.  I made the sketch during a meeting and inked it at home.

Mind Flayer #INKTOBER #INKTOBER2018

Another illustration for Inktober 2018.  The Mind Flayer is a creature from the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. They are also called Illithid and are monstrous humanoids with psionic powers.  Illithids feed on the brains of sentient creatures.  They typically live in the caverns and cities of the enormous Underdark.

Strange Frog Like Monster

This is one of the illustrations I made this summer.  It is a drawing of a strange frog like monster.

October is just around the corner.  I am going to post a bunch of sketches I made and will be making for Inktober.   An illustrator named Jake Parker started the challenge back in 2009 and it has taken off since then.   I have been taking on the challenge the last several years, although I don’t follow the drawing prompts usually or the sketch a day guidelines.  There were not any drawing prompts until a few years ago, anyway.  I use the Inktober drawing challenge as a motivation to create and post some autumn, spooky and horror themed drawings.  I’ll be posting them starting next week.

Giant Spider Illustration

This is a giant spider sketch I started during a meeting and completed over the weekend.  This spider is likely to give any brave adventurer a case of arachnophobia.

 Meeting Hobgoblin

Here is an illustration I started during a meeting of some kind of four armed hobgoblin creature.  He does not look one bit happy.  I like how that snarling look on his face turned out.

Merman illustration.

I spent some time on the beach this summer.  I sketched this one eyed merman while looking out over the ocean.  Maybe he belongs to the side of the family Aquaman does not want to talk about.

A hike in the jungle.

One of the things I did this summer was go on a hike in the jungle with my family.  We were in the jungles of Espírito Santo state in southeast Brazil.  The jungle in Espírito Santo does not look like this illustration, but the hike inspired me to make this drawing.  Fortunately, we did not run into any giant snakes, although our guide said one lived in the area.  I imagine it is not as big as the one I created.

Horned Monster illustration.

I’m back from vacation.  Created a few drawings while I was visiting friends and family in Brazil.  I made this drawing of a horned monster and a few other drawings I will post over the next few weeks.  I tried a different elongated body shape for the figure to fill up the composition.
