This just screams "Monster Squad" to me

Hah! I never heard of that show/movie but a quick look on the internet brought up a trailer! It looks pretty cool, so I will consider that a compliment! :-)

Actually the original drawing:

was from development with Sony Wonder to bring the kid's book "How to Care for Your Pet Monster" to TV. It never made it to air.

I still liked the drawing and was itching for something to paint to practice a bit so I painted it up the other day for Thought Faucet just for the heck of it.

Wow. Interesting to compare the original sketch to your colored version here. Thanks for sharing.

I like the pukey greenish yellow you chose for his skin. Not your standard Frankenstein shade. If I had to voice a criticism, it would be the boy's foot that looks a little too twisted in the opposite direction. Certainly this is just a painting for fun but that's one thing that stood out with me. Hope ya don't mind me saying.

Oh I also liked his fur vest! Just because your limbs are sewn on doesn't mean you can't have style :)

Nope don't mind the criticism at all... Yeah I agree about the foot now that you say it... It looks fine to me when it's really cartoony and flat but when you give it dimension it looks wonky.
