Monsters are fun to paint because there are no limits to what they can look like. That being said, I keep getting stumped when it comes to painting a new creature. It's almost as if there are TOO many possibilities. This painting has three of my creations in it, but I'm always looking for new ideas!

Your monsters are sweet, but I LOVE the girl.  Did you use acrylic?

Yes, it's acrylic on canvas. I painted her to look like my niece. She's always reading Smiley

That's really nifty :-) It brings to mind a combination of "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Calvin & Hobbes". The shading is superb and the colors just bright enough, but not overwhelming.

Thanks, guys! Where the Wild Things are is definitely one of my favorite books (and part of my inspiration for this painting).

I just love it. It's so sweet, and the style is great. You've got a new fan!
