What could possibly terrify a big, burly MONSTER? This is a question I ask myself often when doodling. This past summer I was sitting on the beach in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, when that very thought struck my mind. Together with the inspiration of the location, this sketch of a monster afraid of the water just emerged!
Well, it started as a sketch – today’s dose of monster was really just an ink sketch in my sketchbook drawn on the East coast, then it was colored here in California turning it into a genuine illustration. So, this piece is truly bi-coastal! Originally I was just going to splash some color on it in Photoshop, but as you can see, it blossomed into a full-fledged digital painting. Enjoy!
And if you happen to see any monsters on the beach, just know that they aren’t there to cause any trouble. They just want to have fun in the sand and surf, too!
