Yes, I'm playing Pokémon Go, but the only part I seem to enjoy is collecting the monsters.
Oh, I wish I could create and place my own monsters into Pokémon Go. Thing is, if everyone could do that, there would be a lot of penis monsters.
|My first ghoul drawing from 2006. I think I gave it hooves only because I had it confused with the ghast, although the ghouls were described as having half hooved feet.|
|My first ghast study from 2006.|
|More traditional ghouls in a sketch for an illustration I did for The Burning Wheel RPG.|
|The one drawing on the ground with the stick was supposed to be Pickman, but I think I should have had him be just slightly more human, as the story suggested that he was recognizable as Pickman and that he hadn't completely turned.|
|A Minecraft Ghast|
|Ghast head designs that I wasn't at all happy with. The topmost ones have this flat-faced design, while the rest were trying to incorporate a muzzle.|
|This one looks too much like some sort of snake-man and the legs are too short.|
|This particular ghast head drawing possesses mammalian teeth. Even though I tend towards rows of sharp reptilian teeth, perhaps it's more disturbing if they look more human. This one also lacks nostrils, which they probably should have.|
|The ghast's hopping movement. I'm not sure how such movement would differ without the kangaroo's long tail, which I'm pretty sure it uses for stability and as a counterweight when leaning and hopping forward. Of course, they could have tails- since the ghouls have tails and Lovecraft never mentioned them.|
|Ghast standing flat on its feet and standing "upright" on its toes.|
|A sketch for an ink and water color drawing I was preparing for this blog, but I was surprised and disappointed to find that the ink I was using (Higgins Eternal black ink) was not waterproof.|
|Initial sketches, trying to figure out the mouth and arm structures, and of course, just how cultured the average gug is.|
|Gug expressions. Because the mouth is so crucial to their form of communication, the gug are a very polite species, as they cannot talk with their mouths full.|
