Monster Snack!

Sometimes a monster's stomping a city flat, he builds up a powerful hunger. When that happens, it's time to recharge with a delicious, nutritious snack!

Hey, it's another vector drawing. It took me a while to warm up to vector, but I'm kind of starting to like it. I doubt I'll ever abandon bitmap drawing for vector, but it's fun to dabble in it now and then, and it's another tool in the arsenal.

Originally I drew the monster walking along while snacking on the passengers, but I just couldn't get him to look right. I finally realized that was a dead end and redrew his legs so that he was standing still. That seemed to work much better. Also, the background was originally a reddish brown. It looked OK, and complimented the greens in the foreground pretty well, but at the last minute I played with the hue sliders just to see what would happen, and I decided I liked the greenish background much better.

The vector monster and the buildings were drawn in InDesign. I imported them into Photoshop where I added the painterly background, because that's something you just can't do very well in vector.
