Today’s #drawlloween prompt was “creature from the black lagoon”. That one’s pretty to the point. I’m sure there are some imaginative things I could have done with it were I feeling particularly creative. Sadly I wasn’t. My mental image for it was some kind of blob monster. Apparently the creature from the black lagoon looks more like some sort of humanoid amphibian though. At least I didn’t have to spend much time figuring out what to draw or looking for a photo.
I’m not too happy with this sketch. It actually felt like something a five year old would draw as I was doing it. In the end I think it looks better than I was imagining it but still a bit sloppy. It turns out that drawing cheap Sci-Fi costumes is not exactly my strong suit. I much prefer faces that convey some kind of emotion. Maybe I should take a shot at getting the creature from the black lagoon to emote at some point. I think I need some more practice drawing from the imagination.
