Monsters are cool.

It was either that, or another Star Wars topic.

The Noisy Cricket. If that ain't a pocket sized monster, I don't know what is. ;)

From reference. About 15 or so minutes, Photoshop CS and Intuos.

Bloody hell, even in black and white I need to use levels to crank up the contrast. o_O

05 May 2005, 05:03 AM
Supervileg, is that supposed to be the old kiwi from your avatar (or maybe it's evil twin)?

05 May 2005, 05:30 AM
I figured I'd go for a tame concept.
He runs on AA batteries. ;)
About 45 minutes. It's good to be back.

Any resemblance to the male anatomy is entirely coincidental and accidental (unless you're Freud).
