ROUND #168 :: Where the Wild Things AreDESCRIPTION
Where the Wild Things Are
... is a wonderful children’s book published in 1963 by Maurice Sendak, and if you haven’t read it, you should have! Apparently it is one of Obama’s favourite books! It might be sacrilege to even attempt it this week but imagine a new monster for Max (the central little boy of the story) to meet. They have a very distinctive look loosely based on Mythical Creatures, and of course the style of Sendak is what appeals, but don’t try and match his technique. Use your own and design a new one with his used as inspiration. This is for fun, and although they are ‘wild things’ they are somehow warm and friendly so perhaps steer away from anything gorey. I think the only requirement is yellow eyes!
("Where the Wild Things Are" is the property of Maurice Sendak and Harper and Row.)

Thanks for putting up the finals Posh!
Had fun with this. My work of process (because I don't have much I will explain the stuff) was defining some shapes with the pen tool in Photoshop and then making textures/cloning/using soft brushes and effects and lots of layers.

Beautiful work everyone
Please check out today's character.
here's my finaland wip's (kinda)
Decided that I liked the looks of my monster, but disliked the lame pose it was standing in. so I decided to paint a new pose that should give him more character, and edited his appearance, ditched the antlers, and gave him some more overall shape ... went a little crazy in the process this evening and forgot to save some wip's ...
i don't expect to be in the contest because this is NOT a drawing but my husband (Corspufo) said I should post this because it fits the topic.
Play Dough Art I did with my son the other day. My Wild Thing. Took about an hour to make. Hope i don't make anyone mad by posting it.
I tried to imagine me as a Wild Thing.
Fantastic work here as always.
Thanks for the c&c, heres mine:
