Friday's Monster

Yeah, I know it isn't Friday. This was posted for the great people over at Illustration Friday. This week's topic is MONSTER.


The monster in this pic is more of a metaphor, portraying a man obsessed. His obsession is represented by a barrage of cupid's arrows piercing his heart. So the title, 'Cupid's Semi-Automatic' seemed to be appropriate.

This piece was actually done a few years ago for a themed calendar on 'Love'. If you think thats weird wait 'til you see my submission for their 'Kiss' calendar.

Although frightening, the detail is very significant to the rest of the picture. I like how the only color is on the heart, showing how the man in the picture feels.

This is great. An obsessed person can truly be a monster, especially if the other party wants nothing to do with them. You did a great job representing this in your illustration. Great job!

I liked the detail of the hair on the monster. And I also liked your use of line and color.

Chris, this is fantastic and has to be the most disturbing illo for IF "Monster" (and probably ever) - really twisted and bizarre!
