Monster Bus Stop

Hey, whaddya know, I'm still alive! It's been a while since I've posted anything; blame that on a crazy work schedule, annoying and crippling computer problems, and a general malaise about the world that I hope I'll be over soon.

Looks like the high price of gas is even affecting monsters, causing them to park their cars and start taking the bus.

This illustration took FOREVER. I don't know if it was the lack of time, the computer problems or what. I used to be able to knock out a drawing like this in an evening. This one took a couple of weeks. Maybe I'm just in a slump.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.


Here's the original sketch. It's pretty close to the final drawing, with two exceptions.


Here's the second sketch. I decided I didn't like the student monster with the big horn, so he was replaced with a swamp monster type. The monster on the right hand side underwent a career change, from executive to construction worker.

  3. Nice! This could be an ongoing series. It's a good excuse to draw monsters.
