Here is the finished digital illustration for the monster seen here at the bottom of the page.
I haven’t worked much in Illustrator before, so this has been a learning process. I like the clean vector look of this monster, and I think I’ll finish each of the other monsters in a similar style. I chose to stay away from having any stroke around the edges, which makes it difficult to translate any form from the sketch to the final, so I’ve used layers and subtle gradients to do that instead. I have about 16 images of monsters plus the cover text for the book planned, so I’ll have a lot more to come! Enjoy.
Update: I uploaded this illustration earlier without the little fella’s mouth! So here is the actual illustration. I’ve been playing with adding texture so maybe I’ll update this illustration again later with another update!
