    Sushy - Your work is looking quite solid so far. Your thing under bed has a positive aspect which goes well with all colorful things, such as teddy bear and hello kitty toys under the bed. In order to improve your painting, my suggestions are: 1) add more shadow under the thing on the floor because the purple spot under her feet is distracting so if you spread it out, it would be less distracting and more balanced. 2) her curled tail looks a little bit murked together so if you add shadows underneath her tail so the spiral circle part of her tail would look balanced and clean instead of being mashed together. Keep it up!

    Noamos - Go for it. It'll be a good practice for you to finish it and keep your drawing, developing, and painting routines steady.

    mcreation - Welcome. Your WIP idea is looking nicely. Keep it up.

    TheLuvableNerd - Love your outlines and concept art of Garf. Very clean and crisp as well as innovative. Can't wait to see the rendering part of it.

    Rist - I gotta admit that smelly sock as the thing under bed would be the last thing I ever think of, which is very clever and effective as the thing. I like the blurred effect in the background as well as the detailed texture of scales on the sock and rug on the floor. My two cents are to remove gray as shadow from your sock and add more color to make the sock look quite sharper (because gray as shadow doesn't compliment very well in contrast with the rug so perhaps darker red or purple to make it stand out).

    __________________________________________


    Here are just some WIPs of the thing under the bed. I wanted to do something different instead of making it scary-looking like many others had done. The thing under the bed is more of like a guardian willing to defend the underneath ecosystem of the bed from crawling out and terrorize the sleeper. The thing is composed of many broken toys that had been left discarded and to be buried under dust under the bed but that didn't stop the thing from collecting broken parts and put them together, striving for the only one goal: to protect the sleeper that once loved them from the brutal world of nightmares lurking under the bed.

    Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately my hard drive is broke and the file was deleted lol

    I was think of a desaturated shadow as its a nighttime theme and thought to try and keep things muted to make it feel cold and dreary.

    Really like the st.georges bear jack in the box! Maybe give the character more life as it looks too much like a toy right now. But I really like the colours and the comicalness of it

    Finally starting on the illustration propperly. Going for an action shot of the thing coming out from under the bed.

    I think the composition is working, but I'm not sure about the colors yet. Color is always the hardest part I think.

    Aonegamer Where is the light on the red and blue demons coming from?

    Obstfelder There are only two points of warm light in the picture, see if you can subtly distribute that in other areas of the composition.. not too much of course, so the eyes are still the focus.

    panama66 To make it less muddy you have to be more precise in the way you define form, rather than just foggy shadows, make them sharp in certain areas. for example even a rough sketch like this doesn't look muddy because he uses a combination of sharp and soft shading to show what the 3d form is.

    That's a really good point, that didn't occur to me.

    I moved it behind the bed post a little bit here, but that causes the boy to go into shadow which I don't know if I like... hmmm

    Thanks L.A. KAKERA

    A lot of great ideas and work, pixeltuner i have always loved your style!

    Here's my update, a lot of work still to do. I got stuck in the cartoony monsters inc. sort of thing even though I want to do a little more realistic. Still going with a monster bboy.

    I've tried to take all your advice into account and this is what I have so far. Still not very good at defining organic forms. Changed to fin to a more Dimetrodon look.

    Liffey: Thanks. That's good advice. I can at least reflect the red from the eyes on the floor and furniture in front of the creature.

    About the lamp, I see what you mean about putting the child in the shadow. What if you turned the lamp into something you wanted to give attention to? Like something the thing was carrying or the thing itself gives off light?

    Noamos: I think you got an interesting creature. Maybe you could define the situation a bit more? Is he doing gang signs or something?

    Panama66: I think that's working better now. You might want to saturate the dark parts of the skin even more. And like was said previously: The ridge looks very rounded with the broad Highlight. If you make it a very narrow white line at the top it will look more like a thin membrane.

    Cameli: Awsome monster!

    Second WIP from me. I've tried to fix the perspective and sharpen up the lines on the fur, but still a lot that could be done on the enviroment. Probably won't have time for much more today. Maybe I will be able to re-draw the kid to look a little more human.

    Final update. I've added some more clutter to the room, now there are just a few tweaks remaining.

    Thanks Obstfelder, no he's calling out other monsters to a dance battle. I don't know if anyone knew what a bboy, Sorry should have been more specific. Anyways here's a update hope to finish on time.
