This is progress on “The Creature From The Black Lagoon”, the fourth drawing from my monster collection. This is from day 2 on 1-4-19.
I addressed the creatures unresolved left hand by moving it from a horizontal and cropped position to pointing upward and to the left. This allowed for the webbed fingers to be revealed which is critical to showing the aquatic existence of this creature. On that same note, I more fully realized the other aquatic features of the monster such as the fins and gills.
For the rest of day 2’s progress I just fleshed out the entire composition by adding heavier lines and shadows and textures to reinforce a claustrophobic, lagoon setting. I also added darker and heavier shading to the water that the creature is emerging from since it is the “black lagoon.”
