Formidable! Looks like this guy either just had a great meal or is looking forward to one any moment.

Leezy said...

Oh wow, this is amazing .. definitely my idea of a 'real' monster ... wouldn't want to bump into him in a dark alley, nosiree.

Wonderful work.

This is so wicked! Looks like what you might get if Jabba The Hut mated with Godzilla.

Yikes! He looks like he's just had a meal.... I love the way the red eyes and tips of the sharp teeth stand out from the image...the overall darkness is creates such a feeling of terror. Gotta go now...

Twisselman said...

Knew your post was going to be good, but this is ... whoa... the lighting, both the red and blue... the red slits of the eyes and that curl of a smile at the end of the mouth. Oh, and the hair... Shoot, everything. Whoa.

Then, to juxtapose this guy with the precious Gwyneth... Your range is mind-boggling. Cool.

Rick Lovell said...

Thanks, everyone.

Twissleman, I was even a bit surprised when I saw the Green Meanie and Gwyn next to each other; Yikes...what a difference! If you think about it, though, it's really just about the light; the drawing style is pretty much the same, but Gwyn's light is soft and warm, while Greenie's light is dark, cold and scary. Oh, and it doesn't hurt to give the green guy a little 'tude.
