    Horrors Of Literature!

    Hey all,

    I've read a lot of monster stories over the years, and I just recently started drawing my own interpretations of some of those creatures that I've read about.
    I really want I keep at this for a while and create a whole series of these.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Good stuff.
    I particulary love the first third.
    I just a crit for the Lycaon, it's nose is too dark, and it the first thing my eyes focus on.

    The Wendigo is awesome. The hands really tell the tale.

    Good call on Swine Thing ;p. When do we get Cthulu?

    These are great! They capture the tales appropriately with a clean but eerie style. I cant wait to see more, especially Cthulu

    These are great. I wish more people did there interpretations of these character. I never heard for the croc with antlers before. Its cool though.
    I did this character from an inside joke at the studio I work at. figured it might give you a laugh.

    Love the last one. He's got a really strong expression.
    I'm a bit bugged by the succubus. Her face lacks some the drawing lines your others faces get, but i suppose it's intentional and this is my personal opinion.
    And the boobs are not closed enough to each other, you can almost build a road between.
    The terror looks good.

    ahh, yes... the succubus
    I agree with what you said, and I'm slightly surprised you didn't comment on the length of her neck as well.
    All of those decisions were intentional, She is supposed to be quite attractive and seductive, but in my original sketch she looked too, well, like a normal woman with wings, nothing horrible about her... so I elongated and perverted the distances of things, just to make her a bit more unnatural and irksome in her beauty. Her face originally had angry brow lines too, but I decided against this in the end to give her a more placid almost 'boring-seductive' face.

    Not sure how well all that worked out because I think its coming across as mistakes... On another forum I've had people say very similar things!

    oh well, I tired! :/

    After reading your comment, and watching again the pic, i think you succeed in here appearance. She's got a truly disturbing beauty, you how there's something wrong with it but you can't put the finger on it.
    Love that long neck, it reminds me those African women who elongate there neck. Love also the skin tone and the loin
    In fact she looks like a mix of different culture which breed an abnormal beauty.

    Many of them were all ready loaded on my computer, but I often go on dafont.com and look for different more exotic fonts.
    Or I use common fonts and distort or distress them, like "The Hunger Artist" for example...

    Thanks Buddy. I'm in the urban clothing line market and looking for additional fonts for t-shirts.
