Illustration Friday: Brave

Here is my entry for this week Illustration Friday
The topic was Brave. As usual, I was more inspired by the opposite... in this case being scared.
So here is my scared scary monster, that is even afraid of its shadow.
It's so fun to do some more children oriented illustrations.
Hope you like them!

Oh, I love this monster. And the teeth are great...so many they have no more space.

thanks everyone!
And to answer Chris, yes those are collaged eyes like collaged teeth, ears, hands, tale, feet, nose. I use a lot of different images in my illustration. You can check more about my process here

I love this one and looking at your process posts was truly inspiring! I like to see other people share the perpetual lookout of the perfect pen!

I have only recently started working with a computer and I am now in the look for the perfect scanner. Yours seems to work wonders, can I ask which scanner do you use?
merci et felicitations !

Karö Design said...

Thanks Lj!
As for my scanner, I'm using an epson perfection v500 photo. I've had it for more than a year and it's working really well. It really works well for me!
Hope it helps
Good luck in your search
