30 Day Monster Girl Challenge #19
Cyclops: Isn’t she cute? I wanted this monster to have a rather delicate, shoujo feel to her. No real reason other than it made her more fun for me to draw. I suppose if I wanted to get really shoujo I should do some style studies…. which is exactly what I might be doing, actually. If Cyclops is the only monster girl in this post when it goes live, that means I got sidetracked and didn’t come back to add to it. Still well ahead of schedule, so I’m not sweating it. I just may need a few days to do something else before I go in for the last push.

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge #16 - 18

Ghost: I love ghosts! But I find them a little difficult to convey in pencil sketches. In the final of this, I’ll likely cheat and use transparency over a background. Nothing “inspired” about her design. I wanted to draw a pretty debutante type and put her in a dress that was era-ambiguous (though I was going to go straight up Regency England at first). Her hair was fun.

Robot: I’m not really a robot kind of girl. They’re okay and can be fun depending on the context, but I just don’t draw them very well. I whined about it a little because I couldn’t think of what to do where I’d really get into drawing a robot girl until I realized I could do a sort of Tenra Bansho Zero-ish “kongohki”. So:  a lady samurai bot. I gave her sashes not to make her look more feminine, but because the balance seemed off on the character design. I would have made her “hakama” style thigh pieces wider, but I thought it would be too much in the way.

Alien: If possible, I’m even less interested in aliens than I am robots. I mean, again - in the right context (say, Mass Effect), I enjoy them. I briefly considered going the Star Trek route and just making a pretty human girl with weird ears and brow shape, but figured that wouldn’t be in keeping with the challenge. Started out with the Grey Alien style and started playing around with frogs and turtles as inspiration sources. The final result isn’t bad and I might use the same alien design if I have a use for aliens in one of my projects… but it didn’t change my mind about aliens. xD (Btw, if you’re secretly an alien and this made you feel sad, don’t worry. I judge everyone as individuals. I’m sure I’d like you if I knew you.)

Monster Girl Challenge #13 - 15

Insect Girl: I thought about what insects I like. Butterflies. Ladybugs. Grasshoppers and crickets. Dragonflies. ….What else…. Bees! Of course I had to do a bee! Every once in awhile, I daydream my career path will lead to having a nice little orchard with beehives - and the appropriate staff to take care of them because I don’t do the outdoors very well and would be much happier writing and drawing than being a beekeeper or farmer. She ended up looking super retro, which I approve of and enhanced with pixie boots.

Dullahan: I’ve battled dullahans before in jrpgs, I’m sure, but I’m not sure I ever knew it was a folkloric creature. If you’re familiar with the Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow, you’ve got a large part of what a dullahan is - a headless horseman. But I didn’t want to go the entire route from the tales and make them a nightmarish human-spine-whip-wielding unseelie. I went with a cute undead Celtic girl who dearly loves her leggy horse. Thanks ought to go to Graphic-Sha’s “How to Draw Manga: Animals”, since I used one of their drawings as a guide for my own pretty horsie. (As an aside, the horse was only slightly more difficult than drawing a figure without a head.)

Dragon Girl: Anyone who knows what I like to draw knew I’d go for the dragon girl over a reptile girl. They probably also would have guessed I’d go for an Eastern dragon over a Western dragon. But did they guess a Chinese OPERA dragon girl? N… okay, maybe they might have.

Monster Girl Challenge #10 - 13

Succubus: I wanted to go for a relatively classic pin-up look for her. I’m not sure why she’s leaning on a bubble (or slime, or yoga ball). It just seemed to suit. She’s one of my favorites, but I find I don’t have much to say aside from that!

"True Monster": My first thought for a "true monster" was the chimera. To make a chimera-girl, I had to go for a -taur option, which left her open to throw fire rather than spit it. I may end up redoing this design. The pose does indeed show off her mixture of human, goat, lion, and snake, but makes her proportions look weird. (I know that technically I have plenty of time to fix it since I control the queue, but I do like it enough to share as-is.)

Zombie: In general, zombies don’t appeal to me much. I like the corpse-bride trope, but I mostly prefer jiangshi (Chinese hopping zombies) and Egyptian mummies. Since I thought of the mummy before corpse brides and jiangshi, here she is. I wanted to play around with foreshortening/perspective and black-out shadows and she seemed like a safe one to play with it since anything that looked weird could be explained away with, “So there was some settling during packing and shipment…” The end result makes her one of my favorites of the whole challenge so far!

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge #7-9

Plant girl: More properly, she’s probably a “Limoniad” (nymph of the meadows). I just used this as an excuse to draw a lot of flowers. I’m not sure if her flower-petal skirt will be yellow, pink, or white. But since I’ll be releasing the portrait through my Patreon Project, I guess if anyone wanted to color her a different way from the one I eventually end up choosing, they can!

Octomaid: Okay, I know what was being asked for. They wanted an octopus-mermaid thing, like Ursula from Disney’s Little Mermaid. But when I was looking for something else entirely, I saw a drawing of someone wearing an octopus crown and thought, “Oh - this might be fun!” So now you have some sort of sea witch that’s actually got tentacles coming out of her head. Because how is that not awesome? Also, this lets me put her in a seaweed bikini bottom which would be exponentially more difficult with eight legs.

Demon: Since number 10 is “succubus” and I draw demons and succubi roughly the same way, I decided to go with the Japanese oni instead. I guess you could argue that I ought to save oni for #23 (yokai), but since oni and demons occupy roughly the same space in mythologies, I thought it was fair enough to draw an oni. (Besides, I want to draw a tengu for #23.) So I made a tomboy oni. I imagine her as rather sarcastic and funny.

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge #4-6

Naga:  I actually finished her after I uploaded the first batch. She’s styled after Vietnamese costuming and I think she’s amazing.

Mermaid: I kind of want a goldfish feel for her, though she’s not specifically modeled on one.

Spider Girl: I’m not a fan of spiders. I expect many people aren’t. I didn’t want to go the spider-taur/drider route or the black widow (as in “femme fatale” style, not the Marvel character) route either. So I started for a really cute and friendly spider girl and she came out rather rococo. I like her.

Farmer (female)
The male farmer has already been posted, and here’s the female counterpart! Huzzah! She’s perfect for a Greco-Egyptian style culture. And, again, it’s for my Ryuutama series.Thank you to my lovely patrons at my Patreon project! And you can read my full post about this piece here.PS: I didn’t forget about the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge. I’ve decided to just queue the sketches a bit, so they’ll start tomorrow. I’ve sketched up to the demon girl, so I’m actually ahead of schedule, I just haven’t been sharing because I’ve been too lazy to scan.

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge #1-3

So, I ran across the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge a few days ago and decided to give it a go. (If you follow the link, keep in mind that some of what they post is NSFW. My monster girls won’t get any more NSFW than the Slime girl.)

Here are the Harpy, the Centaur, and the Slime girl. I spent hours on the first two and the Slime girl was sketched up in less than 20 minutes. Like I said to a friend, she’s all circles and bloopies and was easy by comparison.

I will be uploading the sketches “as” I do them. That means sometimes I might upload a batch all in one post and sometimes I might upload them individually if I only work on one in a night.

I’ll also be doing these in whatever order I feel like, though I seem to be doing okay going in order.

Inks and/or color might not be uploaded this month. We’ll see how I go. I am procrastinating on finishing a book and I might make myself feel bad for goofing off. xD

Oh, and - yes. The final pieces will be released through my Patreon project, thus the url slug.

Emergency Commissions

comiccharm:

Hey everyone,
I’ve been through a few things recently… and long story short, I am currently living out of a suitcase at a friend’s house. In an attempt to make some money so I can… well not be broke during this time, I’m doing some emergency bust commissions!

You can send me a Tumblr mail or…

I don’t usually reblog this sort of thing, much less to my art blog proper. But I’ve chatted with Cassu and she’s a lovely person as well as being extremely talented.

Will delete this after the emergency commission session has ended.
