Find those monsters!
Using my development sketch as a guide to approximate shape, I went a-huntin' monster!
There are times when a solution seems to fall from the pencil and there are others where the right shape will put up a struggle. When the latter happens, I just draw and draw until something clicks.
That elusive little chap in the foreground went from spider/crab thing, through freakish warty worm, nasty toothy rat thing to cute horned nose spiked thing. I must've drawn as many as twenty options before arriving at something that would happily sit on that rock! Strangely, the other three were so keen to be drawn, they almost leapt onto the paper!
Next stage, drawing up proper.
