    Teen challenge 213: The monster in your closet

    It seems our regular threadman, D.Labruyere, has some (yet undefined) trouble and is at the moment unable to reach us. I hope he's okay, and I'll try to contact him. For now though, let's continue our activities. I will try to manage this thread, if everyone is okay with that...

    Task:
    Your objective for this teen challenge is to design 'the monster in your closet'. A common myth for children is that the monsters hiding in their rooms at night are going to eat their toes off or some horrible thing like that. Think of the ways you can make the monster look scary, I would advise making a simple collage on beforehand to get you inspired.

    You will be free in what format you'll keep the end result, but do think about it. A painting might show just the mood you're going for, and you can create a childs room that fits your monster. A concept-like presentation shows more of your drawing and design skills, however.

    I will be participating in this too, but as I chose the topic myself I will not enter the finals.

    Deadline:
    Sunday 25th of may at midnight(gmt).

    Don't forget to crit each other and help each other out. I accept both traditional and digital work, but make sure that scans and photos of traditional work are crisp and clean.

    Good luck!

    PROCYON, welcome to the forum! Don't worry, there's a lot of non-native speakers here (myself included)

    I'm looking forward to your progress

    No problem Madnine, I hope you'll enjoy the challenge
    I contacted D.Labruyere, apparently his computer died. He estimated it would take two weeks to get a new one set up properly, so I'll run this challenge and then we should be okay.


    Here is a moodboard I made yesterday. I want to make a monster that looks scary but actually isn't, for children's stories or something. I put some scary looking pics in there as well as some inspiration from monsters & Co, as I'm a huge pixar fan.

    Joining teen challenge for the first time! Here's my first WIP. The concept was that the monster was a sweet looking serial killing schoolgirl. (edit) But in case considered not following the rules I also made a creature monster in case. Feedback is appreciated

    Also looking forward to seeing you other guys' progress!

    Hey deaedbeat, welcome! I'm not sure I totally understand what youu mean with that description, but the monster should be something that hides in closets in other people's houses. Could be a schoolgirl that eats people, do what you like. I feel you aren't as passionate for the other concept, so by all means pick the schoolgirl

    I've been doing some doodling too; feedback is welcome!

    @theclockworkpainter A cannibal schoolgirl serial killer who hides in it is closets then Thank you for the idea! The description was basically a fancier way of saying serial killer, it wasn't very clear so I just took it out.
    The single shoe beside your monster makes me think someones going to whack it with the other shoe haha It looks cute and does remind me of pixar, the nose(?) kind of bothers me though but that just might be design choice.

    Colored in the sketch, still have to refine some stuff but its probably 2/3 done. Figured this was going to be cannibal schoolgirl serial killer's ed gein lair. Also included a pic of art that inspired the color choice somewhat.

    The finals are now closed, and I figured out how to do a poll so get over there and vote!

    Great work, daeadbeat and shadow wind.
    Shadow wind: Your image looks cool, I like the rough fading effect to the white and the painting is nice too. Really sets a good mood, I think. It's a shame we didn't get to see any wip's from you...
    Daeadbeat: Nice image, nice design. I like the color scheme, and also the fact that you actually had quite a line drawing in there which you managed to paint away very well.
