C is for Cerastes

Posted in Animals, Art, Illustrations, Monster with tags , on August 6, 2011 by billifrench

I had a hard time doing this monster, Cerastes, because I am terrified of snakes!!! But when I read about a horned serpent, I knew I had to get it a shot, even if all the references I was looking at almost scared me away.  I faced my fear and present to you my version of the deadly Cerastes.

I follow this really incredible artist, Christopher Burdett, who draws mainly monsters, and draws them incredibly well. A little while ago on his blog he drew a monster for every letter of the alphabet, which I thought was a great idea. I bought this book, Giants, Monsters, and Dragons: An Encyclopedia of Folklore, Legend, and Myth, which unfortunately hasn’t been delivered yet but it has descriptions of different types of monsters. I got to briefly skim through the pages and came across the monster, Acephalos, which will be my letter A! An acephalos, is a greek monster that resembles a headless human with eyes and a scary mouth in the middle of its’ chest. Are you frightened yet?

Dobby from Harry Potter is the just best little fellow and makes me cry whenever I think about him. I did a quick sketch of the little guy to show my appreciation.

I finished the digital copy of my Albert Enstein Band. Take a look!


If Albert Einstein had a band…

This is another still life drawing that I had to do for one of my classes.  I placed three tiny figurines together to look like your typical band album cover. If only Einstein really did have a band….. They’d be great live because they’d have a lot of energy!! get it?!?! 🙂

For one of my classes, I had to do a still life drawing with color pencil. I was looking around the house at objects to try to put together an interesting still life when I came to the obvious conclusion that my mom collects a TON of chicken decorations. All of these little egg fellows sort of resemble each other so I thought they would go together nicely in a drawing as a tribute to my mother, chickens, and eggs. Everybody loves eggs.


Reptile Monster Thing

A quick sketch I did today, some sort of reptilely monster thing. For some reason this fellow came pretty easily for me and that made me happy.
