Thanks y'all!  I'm not a graphic person, so if anyone wants to tweek and redraw I'm fine with that (hint hint FG Grin).  I will redo it once I get home on my drawing tablet...and Yup AMIR, I was thinking the white should be blood shot..and maybe blood drops dripping off the needles?  And I think each individual eye should have it's own colored iris....that way they can be personalized...

I'll see what I can do! Cheesy


My scanner cut off small parts for some reason Tongue The blood drip on the bottom is to make it seem as if the eye has just been ripped out. Not sure if it makes sense realistically but it looks interesting. The ends of the threads on either side is supposed to look like hearts.
If anyone wants something changed, let me know and I'll see what I can do Grin

Prompt: October Mob- Trick
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Little Groot

I have no idea what I did to make the image so small Huh Maybe it's the way I saved it...
Anyway, the "trick" is making the arms so that they can be moved/posed without wire armature Smiley I think it's a pretty neat trick, considering I had tried something like this before and it didn't work out.

I'm behind on posting up the monsters for the 30 Day Monster Challenge because my internet is being weird. Tongue
But I just HAD to share this one because it looks really nice Cheesy

The theme was "Myth of Your Heritage" and my heritage is quite a motley mix so I had a wide variety of myths and monsters to choose from. I chose draugr.
Draugar (singular is draugr or draug) are like ghosts except that they have physical bodies, which makes them more akin to zombies. However, draugar often have superhuman strength and generally retain some semblance of intelligence, unlike zombies who are typically depicted as weak, unless there is a horde, and relatively stupid.
For more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draugr and http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ghosts.shtml

See how much nicer my art looks when I have references? The pose was referenced from a stock photo by Marcus Ranum (http://www.ranum.com), particularly this one. The clothing/armor comes from various images of "Viking" armor.

Prompt: October- Haunted House
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Manananggal
In searching for a different vampire for the 30 Monsters Challenge, I found a type that's a bit creepier than some of it's kindred. In the Philippines, the Manananggal is a female vampire who looks like an ordinary woman by day but by night, she splits in two at her torso and the top half flies about drinking the blood of men and pregnant women with her long, proboscis-like tongue . Typically, the lower half is left standing but some accounts say that she sometimes splits while she is in bed leaving her lower half in her bed "sleeping".

I went for a somewhat silly expression, as if she sees the observer and is doing her best to creep them out. Her wing isn't cut off: I ran out of room because I had forgotten about the Manananggal's wings. Tongue

More 30 Day Monster Challenge art:
Day 3, Satyr

I had no reference at all for this but I'm pretty happy with it Smiley I still need to work on proportions and anatomy.

Day 4, Human + x = Taur -> Human + donkey = Onocentaur

I like it except for her derpy head and her weird arm/hand. Tongue I need to practice right-facing faces.

Prompt: September - Hide and Seek
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Rori the Zombie Fairy
I joined a 30 Day Monster Challenge over on DeviantArt and the theme for the second day was "Fear into Fantasy". At first I was going to draw the Headless Horseman in drag for a different sort of fantasy! Wink But as a lover of fairies, I decided to draw Rori as a zombie fairy. She fits for Hide and Seek because no one I showed her off to realized she was a zombie fairy until I pointed out the exposed brain/hole in her head. I need to practice drawing brains.

If anyone is wondering, she's holding a bag of pixie dust. And the bandage on her leg is to hide the hole because I drew this without any references and I can't draw muscle tissue without reference.

Not a book but a mini comic series. If I like it enough, I may just make a series out of it. It's going to be web comics posted to my DeviantArt page. Smiley

I joined a 30 Day Monster Challenge on DeviantArt. I submitted the Headless Horseman for Day 1, Favorite Monster. For Day 2, Fear into Fantasy, I drew Rori as a fairy.

The bandage is to hide that her leg is missing a chunk of skin (because I didn't have any references and can't draw muscles without reference).

Cute shirt, cmouse! I applaud you on the ruffles. Though I love them, I hate sewing them Tongue

My latest drawing project involves improving my skills for a mini comic involving monsters from movies and myths. Here's some practice work:
Dr. Septimus Pretorius, management of the castle-turned-boarding-house

Facial concepts for some of the main cast. Clockwise from the top: Rafe Cross (human form), Rafe Cross (wolfman form), Dr. Pretorius (much improved from the first drawing), Aurora "Rori" Knight, and the Headless Horseman.

The Headless Horseman racing across the countryside on his horse:

Though I'm happy with all these works, considering I've not drawn a lot in the past few years (barring cartoony/chibi art), I know I can improve.

Prompt:  October- Hocus Pocus
Team: Fandom
Project Name: The Headless Horseman Rides
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is one of my favorite stories and the Headless Horseman is loosely based upon a being from Irish myth known as the Dullahan, a type of Unseelie. The biggest, and most obvious difference, is that unlike the Dullahan, who typically carries his/her head, the Headless Horseman doesn't have his and searches for it.

The horse's head is a bit big and the Horseman looks a bit derpy because he's disproportionate. This is why I need the practice Tongue Also, since his steed is supposed to be running, he should be leaned forward a bit more so he doesn't fall off.

Project Name: Making Faces
I haven't drawn much in the past couple years or so. But I recently adopted two characters from someone on DeviantArt and those characters have inspired me to make a mini comic series. The comics are going to involve monsters of various myths and movies living in a castle-turned-apartments (they rent rooms). So, for practice, I drew these five faces. Two of the faces are the same character but different forms.

My handwriting is a bit fuzzy so the characters are, from top right, clockwise: Rafe Cross (human form), Rafe Cross (wolfman form), Dr. Pretorius (yes, that Pretorius; he's the castle's head of management), Aurora "Rori" Knight (zombie girl), and the Headless Horseman (headless headshot!) Clearly, I need more practice but I think these are pretty good, considering I'm out of practice Smiley
