I’m having a hard time warming up :/
Are you still working on this? These are great!!! I really like the personalities and how well they work with your designs! I can't wait to see more. But no pressure if you got other things to do. They're still really great designs!
I am! I am! I promise! Or that is, I will resume working on this in the near future. Had some major life events happening that have been keeping me from devoting much time to it so far in 2014, but it will return! Thanks so much btw!
Updates have been incredibly sparse…and this isn’t much….but here’s a little doodle of these two, ‘cuz I thought they specifically needed some more development from the rest of the boys, so I’ve been thinking on them laely. (Also because it seems like 90% of the asks I’ve been getting on the ask tumblr are about the Baker boys) I decided to ditch Fry’s goggles for glasses. I think it’ll just work better in the long run.
Cypress and Jeffry Jr!
Cypress has similar feelings to Sam about being a Werewolf in that he thinks it is a pain and a curse, but unlike Sam he is a lot more defeated and pessimistic about the whole thing. He’s very sensitive and is the first to cry during a sad movie (which Mason torments him for).
Jeffry Jr. is named after his father, Jeffry Sr., but earned the nickname “Small Fry” by his mother, being the youngest and smallest of his brothers (which also subsequently turned he and Cypress into the duo known as “Cy & Fry”) He is a thoughtful and strange boy of few words. No one really knows what he’s thinking. When he does say something it’s always a little bizarre. He seems content enough, though.
Mermaids!! (Is this a cheat since it isn’t really a new design???)
I like to think the mermaids Atlantis-like home has a sense of gravity but is ultimately a realm with no logical physics. Inspirations include the Underwater Palace in Okami, the Suikoden IV mermaids, and Bikini Bottom.
Ask Monsters Abroad →
Hey all! Since I was getting an influx of asks I decided to just go ahead and make a new tumblr for the sole purpose of answering asks and making ask prompted art. I love answering asks! But they kinda clog and push around all the art centered posts. Now I’ll just deposit all the asks here!
yep yep yep well for a million years now I’ve had an ask in my box asking for a lineup of all the characters. And so I went to go do that but got immediately frustrated once I drew Leesie so here you go, the loneliest line up. Maaaaaaybe next time
(Also this is me trying to draw a little more simpler)
You may have noticed updates were a little sparse over the busy holidays…and unfortunately it’s going to continue to be sparse a little while longer as I start my new job. Once I figure out my bearings (which hopefully won’t take TOO long) I’ll get the ball rollin’ again on Monsters Abroad art and comics!
Feel like I haven’t updated in ages. Sorry about the silence!
Here’s a first pass of some new characters: some Vampire twins based on Pipistrelle bats
