    Chow 168 :: Where the Wild Things Are

    Chow 168 :: Where the Wild Things Are

    ROUND #168:: Where the Wild Things Are
    DESCRIPTION

    Where the Wild Things Are

    ... is a wonderful children’s book published in 1963 by Maurice Sendak, and if you haven’t read it, you should have! Apparently it is one of Obama’s favourite books! It might be sacrilege to even attempt it this week but imagine a new monster for Max (the central little boy of the story) to meet. They have a very distinctive look loosely based on Mythical Creatures, and of course the style of Sendak is what appeals, but don’t try and match his technique. Use your own and design a new one with his used as inspiration. This is for fun, and although they are ‘wild things’ they are somehow warm and friendly so perhaps steer away from anything gorey. I think the only requirement is yellow eyes!

    Oh the irony! i gave crap to ppl replying in my sketchbook regarding my take on where the wild things are. They didnt know what book it was. Im amased that young ones dont know this story. But Im sure, for most part, that aint the case in this forum. hopefully

    Im in, im yet to tackle a wild one! Fun topic!!!

    I'm finding myself with a lot of free time and this is one of my favorite books of all time...so I'm in! Just a question does it have to be digital or can one use traditional media?

    Love the life you live.

    These are too much fun. My hand couldnt keep up with my brain soon after this legible set though,so everything ended up as boxy T poses and i lost my mojo in frustration.

    I was thinking of going with the little sleepy bat, but he reminds me a little too much of the owl character I did not that long ago, and a different bat I did back in march. Need to avoid feathers and wings.

    ...All kids love inappropriate nipples on a saggy sheman skunk. Im actually liking him/her the most atm, though s/he is perhaps a little too 'punky' for a wtwta character. (nipples aside, that was just to please my love of adding grossness)

    Need to reassess and do another set of these in the morning. Must avoid making the characters my own twisted version and stick to something friendly, has to fit in with the universe not reinvent it beyond recognition. *slaps self on wrist*.

    This was not a book i owned as a kid, i read it a couple of times but for some reason my parents didnt like it, but i wish i had, the nostalgia goggles would really help! All i remember is that i found the illustrations kinda creepy..
