I wonder what a fav tastes like, and if it would perhaps make a good icecream topping.
My second contest entry for the cute monster contest! Hopefully this one is cuter than my last one.
This guy is a vector created in illustrator CS5. The monster's body is shaded using a gradient mesh, everything else is either a gradient, semi-transparent gradient or a solid color. The only raster part of this image is the shirt template .

My Thoughts: Potrait drawing has been my main passion as an graphite pencil artist. When I first heard of the contest, I couldn't hold in my excitement for entry. However, there are challenges.
Drawing with pencils really takes time and the contest only provides less than 14 days for completion. With my normal daily routine, it's nearly impossible to finish a quality piece on time. Well, never say never.
Coincidentally, I took my entire week off work due to my recent car accident. With my car being repaired in the shop, I had nowhere to go but focused on the drawing. The repair cost me nearly $3200 out of my own pocket and my insurrance company didn't cover the repair.....Long story short, I was so determined to win this contest.
Despite the extra free time, completing the entire piece is still a big push. I chose the biggest paper possible for best possible detail. This is my first and most ambitious attempt to finish a 14x17 portrait in full detail because I don't usually include background in my portraits (see my gallery).
This pose of Johnny was found in the one of the two posters inside the asset pack provided by the contest. For the background, I got inspiration after viewing the official movie trailer. Composition wise, I believe it shows the characteristics of Barnabas Collins. The background was drawn in simple sketchy fashion so it won't be too distracting yet it still tells the story well. Some of you might have found the background interesting. Leave me a comment if you've found the dragon inside the drawing .
Yeah, this is it. I've used all the tme I had and now I have to submit this and hope for the best. If you like this, please favorite it, share it, and most importantly, leave me your comments (good or bad). I appreciate your support!
I didn't really get this finished on account of me being ill : ( Because of that it's kinda more of just a concept rather than a totally polished piece. If I had my health and more time I would have really added in the detail where it's needed.
I'm a big fan of the new Prince design(First rule of awesome characters; have lots of blow-in-the-wind garments! He has a scarf AND a trenchcoat. Superb.)and I'm really looking foward to playing this game. Family! Buy me it for Christmas please :B
I tried to roll everything into one, the battle between light and shadow, how the Prince gets around and the co-operative element between the characters.
