Summer Draw Challenge: Monster Currently Under My Bed


I am still trying to catch up with the summer draw challenge. The self imposed limit is about 2 - 3 hours per illustration. It can be difficult, for example I really like the start of this one and didn't want to stop. If I had more time I would probably rework the bed and figure on his back. I think I could have designed it better and could really boost the composition with a better pose of the figure in the bed.

I thought it would be interesting to flip the idea of a monster being an intruder under ones bed and instead turn the human in the scenario into more of a parasite. The bed is kind of fused into the back, turning the person into the intruder. I thought it would funny to draw the monster at the point of having had enough and on his way out the door. In the fashion of the old Looney Tune gags, this is done with the bowler cap grabbed from the hat stand and the suitcase slammed shut, clothes hanging out, followed by the march out the door.  The monsters posture probably could be improved to match the attitude of the gag.
