Monster Month: Chibithulhu

chibithulhu

So, last night I was at the Barnes & Noble, fresh off last week’s purchase of Scott McCloud’s Making Comics. I like the book, but it sort of lacks if you’re not a very experienced artist. I plopped down in the aisle in front of the Wall of How-To-Draw Manga Titles and flipped through a few, because I could use some help learning how to look at comic art with a more analytical eye.

I spent five or six minutes with the Chris Hart guide to drawing Chibi, which entertained me a lot for whatever reason. While I was leafing through it, I thought of Chibithulhu, so I picked up a copy of FLCL, which has some styles I liked, and stopped at Michael’s (the craft supply store) on the way home to buy some drawing pencils and pens. He needs a little tentacled cat companion or something, but since the month is winding down and since I put some pressure on Sven to share a bit of his monster-month-inspired creative wealth, I figured I’d chip in something.

    neat! thank goodness for wikipedia entries for chibi & flcl, or i’d have almost no idea what you were talking about. :)

    btw, we created a new category to see all the monster month entries at once: http://www.scarletstarstudios.com/blog/archives/bestiary/
