    Default Scared Silly Entry by Cesar Dacol Jr. (Aka, The Voodoo Monkey)

    Hi all.
    Been a really long time since I posted on here.
    Hope all my Z buds are doing great!
    Life has been busy, but I think I can find the time to try and squeeze this one in.

    My idea is a simple one.. the title reminds me of terrifying times when I was a youngster on Halloween night.

    "The Bully"

    I'll post up a pic soon.
    Cheers

    I think I'm going to enjoy this piece! Hmmm? I wonder if the bully is going to reap what he has sowed. HeeHee!

    Awesome creature! My only comment is maybe having the kid on the monsters shoulder having an empty or torn bag. This might help to illustrate a little better why the kid is sicking his pet monster on the bully.

    Hey Cesar,

    Very cool start man
    I would stick with second image -without tail- plus some horns
    And my 2 cents would be:
    - The kid riding the monster could be using kind of a t-bird/grease -since he looks kinda "nerdy"- hence the "cool" costume.
    - The monster could be in a more dinamic pose, like already approaching the other kid.
    - The other kid could be a bit older than the one that's riding the monster

    Just my suggestions
    However you decide to make it I'm sure it'll be awesome... and FAST! I've seen you work and you are indeed as fast as you're good

    Default Another option and update.

    Hi all.
    Time has not been on my side.
    Every time I think I got a minute something else pops up.
    I'm having to rethink what I'm going to do.
    Have a look and a quick update on the boy.
    Let me know what you all think.
    To those that have replied, thanks.
    I've taken it to heart and have even made some adjustments based on your suggestions.
    Very cool indeed!
    cheers

    Nice sketch and a cute start of the "drakula-boy".
    I prefer the simplify head of the sketch monster.

    Cheers

    Love it! Great concept! I wish I had a monster like this when I was at school, I'd soon put that little monkey who used to wedgey me in his place!

    Horns will make him suitably threatening, but the teeth I think could be a little shorter. Though a sharp tooth’s Cheshire cat grin, would be great for the comic factor.

    I got my eye on this one! Good luck!

    Great work so far! I really love the wicked grin on the big beastie. The expression in the latest sketch looks really fun too.
