    First chow and been thinking about this with reference from monsters inc and little monsters movies and haven't really come up a really good idea but here's a sketch I did last night, it was a underground bboy monster, doesn't look like much of monster and don't know if I will go this route. Maybe I'm over thinking it but I want to finish it.

    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.

    Liffey: Great warped perspective. Looking forward to seeing you develop that.

    Sushy: I think it's looking great, but there are always some details that could be tweaked if you want:

    Consider adding a lightsource slightly to the back on the right side of the character. That way you get a rimlight that will bring out the face and the shape of the ball.

    I think you should consider moving the meringue (is that what it is?) by the front paws away from the outline of the character. It makes some awkward negative space just under the face.

    In addition you could push the values on the main character a little (maybe just use a levels adjustment in Photoshop) so that it has a little more range than the background. Just to put the focus more on the character, if you know what I mean?

    Working on some thumbnails.

    I haven't quite decided how to frame the scene yet, but I'm liking the static look of the first of these two. I'm imagining that the monster and the child in the bed are at a stalemate, with neither wanting to move before the other.

    Makes me think of the way I sometimes woke in the middle of the night when I was a kid, and was scared to move because I was sure something scary was out there and would hear me.

    Obstfelder: The perspective on the second one makes it much more dramatic and engaging.

    Sushy: I wouldn't know it's under a bed just from looking at the pic, make you could show bed legs in the scene and darken certain areas of it, just as examples
