Monster Girl challenge 1-6 by Rainroad Monster Girl challenge 1-6 by Rainroad
In the spirit of October I have decided to take up the 30 Day monster girl challenge over on Tumblr!

I thought it would also be fun to exercise my black and white style, which I have used in the past (in school) but not really here. I may end up painting one or two of them when I complete it.

I'm curious, which is your favorite? I know tumblr's favorite is the mermaid. That's my second to least favorite. :lol:

It's funny how people will adhere to artworks that we sometimes weren't personally so pleased with.

That said, my favorite is that sweet-toothed harpy. :)

I really love the mermaid. Putting that fish face on her belly made it so creepy... And it kinda makes sense, which is scary! I really like the concept.

My favorites are the naga and the centaurina. The mermaid and the slime creep me out. :stare: Well, they are certainly different, at least! XD

My fav would be... THe NAGA. Of course, the naga I had in mind is a bit more.... errmm... warrior based. But then there's many ways to interpret it. And I like this one the same. :D It has that intelligent, elegant and mysterious look to it. Though a little bit of stubborn and prideful maybe. She looks quite a cutie in a nerd way nonetheless. Hahahaha Quite a change of view.

haha yeah, on some of the really popular monsters I tried to do something unexpected. I'm glad you saw her personality the way I intended it!

It would be really cool if you did a 30 day monster warrior challenge or something! But your 3D work is probably more important, I think. :lol:

Hmmmm... I did think about joining in, monsters afterall are my favorite things to draw... but of course, after ALWAYS getting the 'dont always draw monster' and 'draw something cute or nice looking' from my family... It kinda wear off over time. Happens before I join DA, and obsession on kung fu panda kinda turned my world into a much cuter place <3

Anyway, I am trying to focus on 3D for the moment. Even my tablet started to collect dust. Still, some classic on the pen works are still needed before all those skills rusted, yeah? hahaa..

Btw, i asked my sis to pick her fav, at first she said Mermaid, but when I pointed at the mermaid's stomach, she straight away said "centaur"... lol... probably it's the most closest design to human look here, not to say horses are... really peace looking creatures, compare to *cough* Slime.... Slime is like.. Mimik failed to mimic a woman... urgh... *shiver*

Well I like the stuff you're making with 3D. I envy your patience. I made a little animated short in Maya for a class.... it was hilarious...because it was SO CRAPPY. In concept AND animation. I did it in one night because I procrastinated. I had vis effects friends that laughed so hard at it. :XD:

:rofl: yeah, that's one mermaid you don't wanna hug. :lol: And a lot of people drew the slime girl really cute. Slime is gross, so I drew her gross. Aww come on mimik, slime girl likes you! At least take her on one date.

You learnt maya?! :lol: I mean.. Of course! You studied at a media university... How did they teaches you? step by step? from Modeling to Mental Ray rendering and Paint effects? The course lasted for 1 year or something? You guys did any school project on that? hahaaa.. Sorry to bother you so much, I am really really really curious on this... And if its not too much to ask for.... Can I see that clip?? :icontrollfaceplz: Or maybe just a snapshot or something.. It'll be nice :B

The class was called Advanced Survey of Computer Art applications (CMPA). It was a required course for most majors, I think.

In a few months we learned the basics of photoshop, illustrator, After effects, Dreamweaver, and Maya. We only spent a few weeks on Maya, and basically I learned the basics on Lynda.com. (really useful site if you get a membership there)

My professor moved too quickly for me to follow along and I was seated in a bad position to watch him and do the work at the same time. But I got an A at the end anyway. He taught it step by step, but I don't remember the exact order. It wasn't too in-depth because we didn't have much time. The non-advanced class was the same but with no Maya. The clip.....is really not exciting. Its a bunch of jacks and a ball....and.... oh god it's embarrassing. But I started it the night before it was due so that's what I get I guess. :XD: I could email it to you if you want. Note me if you still wanna see it. :lol:

Great work! Love the style and the concept of each character. My favorite is also the mermaid but I really liked the concepts of the arachnid and the harpy.

I think I like the centaur most cuz you made her Native, and I've never seen that done before, needless to say done well to boot. u

But they're all great and have their own vitality to them. :nod:
