Monstrous sketches by crysothemis Monstrous sketches by crysothemis
Just some quick sketches of a couple Jabberwocky sorts of creatures. I haven't drawn from imagination in a long time, and it's kind of fun to see what I've internalized (nevermind what I haven't) from reference-based drawing.

Almost put these in scraps, but I'm weirdly fond of them, so here they are.

These are awesome. I liked the winged creature.

Practice definitely helps. The fascinating thing (to me, anyway) is that practice drawing one kind of thing helps in drawing other kinds of things. I think it has to do with understanding how light and shadow reveal form, and also with (very) basic anatomy . . .

Those are awesome! I wish I could shade, or even draw monsters, like that :D

As a random side note - I have a mouse named Jabberwocky so your artist's comment made me giggle.

Hey, thanks! My only advice is to draw from life or photo reference *a lot* to get a feel for light and shadow.

Also? Jabberwocky is an awesome name for a mouse.

Thanks! I think I agree with you that the first one came out better. Foreshortening is always a risk, but entertaining to try. ;)
