Wow long time no post of these Monster High Monsters University guys! Mostly I guess since Don didn't turn out as nicely as the others. He's just a very tricky character to convert... he has to be tall, younger, can't have a mustache, can have hair, and can't have tentacles or his cute little elephant feet! (Well, he might have the feet... and he at least has micro suction cups on his arms so he can still be sticky!) Ultimately, I think he turned out pretty well, just wish his anatomy looked better, and maybe that his hair was a little different. I've had trouble figuring out a good hairstyle for his teenage self ever since I first doodled him. Originally, I wanted him to look kind of like a high school student from... I guess the fifties? As I'd figured that's when he would've been a teen (Excuse the bad headcanoning here) So when I designed him I was trying to aim for a look that was a bit less modern. Since then, I came up with some concepts for a Monster High rewrite of MU, and my theory for that story now is that Don is only a "mature student" because he's been held back a couple years and is most likely college age, about 18-19. Again, please excuse the weirdness. Either way, even if he needs improvement in some areas, he still turned out scary cool :) And I really do like his hair, honestly, it just needs some adjustments. Anyhoo that's what improvement and drawing practice is for!

Don Carlton belongs to Disney/Pixar, the Monster High style belongs to Mattel, and the drawing itself belongs to me.
