Unleash your inner beasties! Unlike their villainous cousins, the monsters in this book exist to make people smile, not scream. Wonderfully weird and relatively harmless (aside from the occasional nibble on a toe), these are some of the most likeable monsters you'll ever encounter--from Stephanie, who wants to wrap her tentacles around you in a big hug, to Patience, the bug-eating rock, to Peeperpillar, a cute caterpillar-parakeet. They are the quirky creations of three professional monster artists, here to share their techniques and character-building processes. With a fun, anything-goes approach to monster-making, they show you how to bring to life the beasties running wild in your own imagination. * Draw 43 crazy-cool monsters step by step! * Learn to draw a variety of eyes, mouths, horns, legs and feet, and make mix-and-match monsters. * Create four breeds of monsters, including freestyle, alien, mashups and robots. * Spot monster-making inspiration all around you, from animals and insects to jelly beans and toasters. No humans were harmed in the making of this book.
