Illustration Friday: Monster


I had fun with this one. It gave me a chance to use a pencil.
I thought I was going to go simple and vector, but I just kept sketching and then shading and then well…got tired and here it is.

Please note: The monster portrayed in this illustration is a fictional character and not my daughter.

Please see below, I scanned in the original sketch for this particular piece.

Also feel free to browse: http://www.cafepress.com/tomstuder wher I have made promo postcards and posters of this picture.

In some ways I kinda like the sketch just as much.
