For the currant drawing I'm working on, I want to have monsters under a bed in the back ground. However, as previously mentioned, I misplaced my monsters.
Not misplaced like i had references and lost those...I actually lost their place in the drawing. But I still want them.

The drawing is (so far) a figure holding a fake flower while sitting amongst paper flowers.
The drawing and I are arguing. I think the drawing doesn't want the monsters, but I'm not sure that the meaning will get across without the monsters.
Sooo....The question becomes is there a way for monsters to be there without being a monster? Or should i tell the drawing to get over its attitude and accept the monsters?

Thank you in advance for any and all advice <3

How about just some big eyes in the dark?

Hmmmm, I like that idea a lot Smiley The only down side is that there are no dark spots in this piece Sad But, I'd totally love to use the eyes in the next drawing!

Any chance of a preview so we could have a better idea about the compression?

There should always be monsters!

Any reflective suffices, so you could maybe have a reflection of a monster from out of frame?

This is the rough sketch, if that helps any...
There aren't any reflective surfaces, the ground is covered with paper flowers with thorny vines lurking underneath

turn some thorns into "grins" that are vicious teeth, with eyes (in yellows or greens) among the flowers, in sort of leaf shapes?
