2017 Monster Month: Day 12 – Monstrous Inspiration

Here is another full page from my sketchbook of some random drawings that have nothing to do with each other, or do they? Hmmm. They were originally drawn without any real plan, but sometimes random doodles such as these can inspire a whole other image when put together.

This is often the point of drawing in a sketchbook. It is a place to get the bad drawings out of you so the good ones can see the light of day, but it is also a place where your mind can run free and slap out innocuous little drawings that can actually inspire real creativity later on.

Which of these drawings do you think were turned into a painting? Come back tomorrow to see a watercolor creation inspired by these sketches.


Look, an image not cropped so you can see it really is from a sketchbook!
