Illustration Friday: Monster


Sorry, but I think the topic has changed to Spring as I was posting to the Illustration Friday site, this was done for the previous topic. I was trying to get this finished before the topic changed and was in a hurry and didn't notice. This is the first Illustration Friday I've taken part in. I was running a bit late because I was working on some typical monster stuff for the illo and then realised I wanted to push myself a little and not do a typical monster (as much fun as that may have been). I figured that the scariest monsters are usually the ones that you can't see and this is what I came up with instead.

Thanks, glad you liked it! If only I'd posted it in time to the correct topic. D'oh!

That happens all the time...I wouldn't worry about it. It is a wonderfully expressive illo. Very cool!

Lovely stuff, Faz.

Nice job expressing fear in this poor soul. Don't worry about your timing...the important thing is that you pushed yourself to overcome doing a cliche monster. Hope to see more of your work on Illustration Friday!

Is the monster going to "spring" out at him?!!!

I keed I keed. Okay, I'll stop.

Awesome illo. You've really pulled off terror in this kid's eyes. Your colors are killer as well.

Now get crackin' on that spring drawing Faz, I wanna see your next piece!

Do you know what means 'Faz" in portuguese? Means "do". so, in english, "you do", in portuguese , "VocĂȘ faz".
Faz you know how to do.
Congratulations.

I agree, the truly frightening monsters are not seen, or only seen as shawdows of something monstrous, your illustration really makes that point, beautiful work!
