Well, I've made another monster fella. At first, I didn't really care for him. He wouldn't talk to me, he wouldn't open up... We didn't get along, but I tried to make it work. Finally, after some not really desired Indian food but was okay anyway, I added some texture to this shy guy to make him really open up and talk to me.
I added these bumpy dudes, and he looked more interesting.
I still need to come up with good names, but I just can't think of anything that fits. And I don't want stupid stuff, I want something relevant, but not all super conceptual. Just something, simple...
Also, while this guy was interesting, he was still missing something. Of course Mama Bear comes and saves the day! She added these eyes and this creepy ass mouth to the top of the guy. See? It looks better already! It's like magic.

Just been working on my new monster guy. I'm very pleased with how he has improved from my previous creatures. He is much more detailed and seems to be more lively, thanks in large part to Mama Bear! I'm planning on using a shiny, slippery looking glaze, because I want him to look wet and slimy. Also, I'm struggling with a name. I can't keep calling my creatures... creatures. But names like Mr. Lumps just are not good enough! Alas...
I also will be looking at animal anatomy to try and make more believable parts. I don't want to make things that look just like something else, but rather an echo of reality...
