well, the title says it all really. file under "does exactly what it says on the tin"

This is the third in my laughably entitled "children's illustrations" series.

I started this image at around the same time as the others in the series but for one reason or another never got around to finishing it pat more than a sketch. I always intended to finish it sooner than this, but hey, stuff happened.

This was created from the ground up in Photoshop.

The other two images are:

I enjoyed this and remembered the dark side of childhood. I used to lay in bed and think good thoughts hoping to keep the strange from my dreams. I find that exploring the dark is always a journey. Lets hope yours continues.

Love it.
That's it that all to say.
Lets just admit to myself that you are lord and master. I love all your work.
I wish something like that lived under my bed.

He actually looks like a friendly monster... He has nice eyes. I really like the lighting in this.. It's like a dull musty glow. And I like the almost comic-book like look of the scared child. Great work

I love your art. It's always so fun to just browse through the stuff you submit ^__^ Great job. Do you paint with a tablet and if so, what flavour?

I really love the lighting and the design of your monster. It looks kinda cute in a 'bite your face off' kind of way :)

Yano I would pay for there to be more kids books illustrated like this. Everything is too cuddly and fluffy now :(
