A lovely woman that I know from when I was in high school asked me to make a monster for her. She is a weight lifter, and her son gave her the nick name "Monster". She wanted something to reflect that on her gear. The image you see below is the final product of what I created for her. She was absolutely in love with it. I am so happy! I can't wait to see her print it on her gear.
I've also posted pictures at the bottom that show how I got to this point. I don't usually accept projects for face drawings. But I've been itching to get back into drawing, so I took the challenge. She had said she wanted a monster image of some sort but didn't really know what and gave me several examples. We talked about: did she want it to be more illustrative or tribal tattoo-ish because she had images going both ways. We decided on illustration. I asked did she like more full body or just a face. We went with face. And just kind of kept going from there while I looked at her reference idea photos she had pulled from the internet.
I hope you readers like this post, because I really like seeing my process all laid out like this. It's kind of awesome to see them all together. And where it started to where it ended up!
Thank you so much for reading, and I'll post again soon!
I never really grew up.
