Monsters and Thugs

Here are some new illustrations I created while mellowing out after a hearty Thanksgiving Dinner. They are created with washes of goash and then scanning them into the computer and adding digital coloring.


A imaginary rock band, the Monsters in a faux album cover. I might have to use it if I make any CD/DVD’s as gifts.


I like the look of the drawing and I feel very good about the simple use of color too.


I really like the vampire image, but I realize now that the upper arm is too long, but the coloring with a simple pallet that I have been using lately seems pretty successful.

What do you folks think?

    I like the third one, great contrast. As to the too-long arm, when I don’t notice those things at the pencil stage, I just fix them on the computer after scanning. (I have a tendency to make my heads way too big…)

    btw, I had to disable anonymous commenting on my journal… hopefully not for long though. Just so you don’t wonder if you try to comment and it won’t let you.

    Are you getting spam? I get spam comments about 5 times a week, but the nice part is once I approve you comment yours will appear here right away.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Love the new fan art.

    Did you see the link down post of the watercolorist who did a graphic novel of the Hobbit?
