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...
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.

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.
