Bluffster.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bluffsters are not from our planet.  They used to a crop cultivated by Marcians, until a solar splash gave them self-consciousness and love for bluffing and disguising. A long time ago they sneaked on an ancient alien ship and smuggled themselves onto our planet. Their favourite habitats are pyramid-looking structures, which crawled with Bluffsters, until just recently. 

It’s a tricky business trying to find a Bluffster. They are unrivaled masters of disguise and can pretend to be anything from a pineapple to a broom. This talent is the reason why there are so few Bluffsters left in the wild. They love pretending to be something yellow, blue and green, only to find themselves locked away in a class case or stuffed in rings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have you ever met a Bluffster? I wonder if they are happy on our planet.

50 Cute Monsters Drawing Challenge. Monster#16.

Welcome the new monster-family member,

Softster.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Softsters, as their name suggests, are creatures soft in every meaning of this word. Not only are they notorious for their excuisite fur, but also for being kind-hearted and easy to be touched. Everything moves them: droplets of rainwater on spiderwebs, sunlight playing in tree tops, snails hurrying about their business. 

Why Sofsters have such big and numerous teeth – no one knows. They say, however, that it was the natures attempt to “decuten” this endlessly cute little monster. An attempt which absolutely failed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve actually had a lot of troubles coloring this one. So I ended up with 5-6 versions of The Softster. Here are my favourites:)

Picking colors for Cute Monster # 16. Got tips?

Here is the cutie I’m working on now. And I’ve had some troubles picking the right coloring for this guy. It’s a big deal, cause the color often creates the monster’s story. I often don’t even know how the monster will be called until the illustration is finished.

So got any ideas? Looking forward to hearing from you:)
