Here's about 100 sketches for my series of 1,000 monsters that I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with. I need to do a lot more experimentation with book binding before I'm comfortable with doing a run of books for this. I'll be using these a lot to reference for various characters in my Hob Bob comic, I'm going to try to incorporate every one of them in one way or another. Some will probably be characters that I use a lot, others will get background cameos. The one that looks like it's split in half has inspired me to do a weird tribe or village of characters that are all split in half but fit back together when they're in danger. That's going to be fun to draw. I might make all the buildings split in half too. Maybe have some giant golem creature that's in two giant halves that all the townsfolk need to push back together to fight for their plot of land against whatever invaders come their way.
Anyway, what you're looking at is very light pencil sketches that I dropped the levels on in photoshop and adjusted with the stamp filter. A few of these I'll start drawing with an idea in mind, but it's usually just stream of conscious drarering. Strangely the diamond formation, ghosts and serpents keep finding their way back into different creatures so I'm just running with it.
