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:)

Cut out, glue, play. Feel like a child again.

Honestly, was fun. Challenging, especially gluing the dice (soooo hard), but did I enjoy every bit of it? Totally!

Me and Quiet decided to play all the games we’ve created before releasing them in a book. Good thinking, Quiet. Found quite a few bugs. Had quite a few White Russians. Felt like kids a again.

Space for brain workout.

I’ve been working my brain out through space brain teasers for about 2 months already…   cause I’ve been drawing an activity book about space! XD

The idea of the book belongs to my coauthor, Quiet Riley Jr.  He is an illustrator, sci-fi author, traveler, spiritual weirdo and what not. Make sure you drop by his blog here. I don’t know what I would do without his insights and amazing writing skills.

The book is almost done, putting final touches on it, which means I can finally share some teasers with you, guys!
