My Pet Monster?



I spent the day working on a My Pet Monster project at AG. I have always loved the character, and enjoyed revisiting this old brand from the 1980's.While working on it I decided to do a quick My Pet Monster sketch, and in the process the poor guy kind of got...'Gromanized'. What can I say...I make no excuses. So here he is in raw sketch form, with a quick Photoshop color version as well.
Now time for an early New Years Resolution. This year I did not do nearly as much free-style sketching as I would have liked to, but 2009 is going to be different. I am going to make a serious attempt at trying to do a new quick sketch for this blog on a more timely basis. Like this drawing of My Pet Monster, I have hundreds of heroes, villians and monsters that I have been wanting to sketch up my version of, and this is going to be the year to do it.
So let this be the first of many...

Howdy, Monica!!
Yes, of course I remember you. Still in NY City? Still doing art? Hope all is going great for you. Let me know if you have a website.

Pretty cool Boris V. piece. His stuff always has something going on in it of interest. Still looking for that cool Thark design though,...no one has ever bested Bernie Wrightson's as far as I am concerned.
Thanks!!

GAV!!
Yup, just felt he needed a makeover. I would buy one of these.
Maybe we'll make that My Pet Monster movie a PG-13.
In 3-D.
Thanks, Gav!

YIKES! ... good to see that adoption has paid off. Hopefully he won't come looking for his biological parents any time soon. Sweet work as usual!!

Wow, this is epic! Always loved My Pet Monster (it haunts the outskirts of my daughter's crib now, since she inherited my old beast) so this was a great piece to stumble upon and a great introduction of your work to me, a first-time finder of your blog. Well done.

I still think this drawing is amazing. I need to get around to making a Glyos body for the Glyos My Pet Monster head I showed you at NYCC this year. The original My Pet Monster I owned as a kid is sitting in my living room so one of these days I'll get around to finishing that sculpt.
