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.
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.
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.
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.
