A Monstrous New Direction?

I’ve been doing a bunch of sketching recently for my Monstrosities.  In my last post (April 17th), I tried creating a Monstrosity from a rough head sketch.  The result was interesting enough for me to come up with some new ideas.  I tried to see how realistic I should go.  The illustration I have to show today was an experiment in how realistic is too realistic.  Granted it’s a stylized head illustration.  But my point of it was to see where my Monstrosities should go.  I still don’t know.  I just know that I like doing these little creatures.

But I think that this not the way these creatures should go.  This doesn’t really feel like it’s in the same world.  It feels more like a mutation or zombie-ish type of character/creature design.  While I like it, it isn’t a Monstrosity.

It was an interesting experiment.  I know a little more of where I don’t want my Monstrosities to go now, and that’s a good thing.  We’ll see what happens in the next experiment.  Maybe I’ll call these explorations “Experiments” from now on too.   Hmmmm….that’s interesting.

More to come.  Stay tuned!
