Ghoulies! Well, not really… Creatures of all kinds!

I like the word Ghoulie a lot. I wish it weren’t already taken. I think a remake is in order.

Anyhoo. I was dusting up my character design skills and came up with the following. In other news, today’s lesson is, draw on nice paper with a nice pen, even if you think you are just doodling.

Critters small

Okay — from the first few rows you get a sense of my style — simple shapes, cute, pretty standard. The “irregular” ones start when I decided to draw from wall and floor patterns again — same way I got rabbit with an afro. This page came from the patterned carpet.

These goblins are all from the roller-painted walls! I didn’t think they’d have enough texture to find faces, but there they were!

Goblins sm

I am pretty jazzed about the green-arrow goblins. They’re so Ralph Bakshi, and so totally NOT MY STYLE. RALPH BAKSHI I AM ON TO YOU.

The dragon with the tie — I have no idea what happened there.

I foresee many interesting developments in my drawing skills this summer. OK, so ApeLad isn’t exactly sweating it, but MAYBE IN AUGUST HE WILL!

**Update 6/16**

Okay, just so everybody knows, Mariska Hargitay made her film debut in Ghoulies. Please remake immeds with cameo kthx.


Draws. Sweats. Eats too much sugar-free candy.
