Creature on it's way! (Ooops!)

So . . . for the last couple of weeks I have been seeing this view as I work in my studio and look to the left. Every time I look over I see the next Moly and my practice Moly where I am trying to work out my distain and frustrations for the paper. Well this morning I was sketching some ideas for Joey's moly, intending to work on it today between binding a couple of sketchbooks, so pulled it over to look again at everyone else's work and to my shock and surprise - it is Diana's finished and un-mailed Creature moly! Sorry . . .

Here is my addition to Diana's Creature Moly. I was so excited to work on the actual Moly paper this time! My drawing is in Sharpie pen with the gears colored in with metallic markers. I kept wanting to add color but none of my "colored added" tests ever looked right, so I just left it mostly black and white. I also wanted the items inside the monster to look scared or uncomfortable, but I am wildly unsuccessful at making those sorts of anguished faces it turns out. So, as my daughter put it - "guess you settle for mystery rather than startling".

At one point while working on my drawing, I decided to add on some small robotic style creatures to my section of the larger creature, but they never seemed to work their way onto the page smoothly. I have left this trio in the pocket at the back of Diana's moly if someone else would like to use one or more - feel free.

Here is the entire length of the Creature so far.
I can't wait to get this one back; after finishing my drawing I had so many different ideas for what I could have added instead. I guess I had artist's remorse, which makes it feel unfinished to me.
It is on it's way Joey - for real this time!


  1. This is awesome! I can't wait to add onto that one!

  2. Diana's Moly Monster is here ! Can't wait to get started on this one!
