Snot Monster

Well, it turns out things are worse than I had feared. A new monster has been found in my nose.

A creepy crawly I drew when sick, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's monsters.

This one is definitely a snot monster.

If you’d like to see a few pictures of how I drew him, read on.

This is the initial line drawing.

Which I began shaping using a smaller pen.

All finished with the linework. I wanted it to look smooth and cartoony, but also have a clear sense of depth.

Gellyroll white pen added some great highlights. I’m new to midtone sketchbooks, but I’m a fan.

And a bit of background. The lines are drawn with a ruler, but they’re lined up by eye, so little imperfections creep in, which I like. That’s it, except for the colored pencils.

I like this one, and he was really fun to draw. Let me know what you think in the comments section.
