Scribble to Inspiration

Disclaimer : I DID NOT STEAL A SCRIBBLE DRAWING FROM A KID.  HE WAS DONE WITH IT!!!

At least I think we was done with it.  He walked away.  That counts as "S'all yours.  Do your worst" doesn't it?!

Anyway, after he left, and as I kept working on the green scribble, adding leaves and shading with green and blue crayons at some point I saw a monster in there and couldn't resist adding the mouth - Your Honour, I did hesitate as I didn't want to do something too scary lest it would upset aforementioned child.  Putting the eyes below the mouth was an interesting decision, but the execution wasn't quite right - they look a bit disconnected and bulbous.  I like the Tyrannosaurus Rex stick-like arms and the many legs that look like trunks from shrubs or small trees.  I think the monster would move like a caterpillar on these many legs.  It's also interesting how messy the whole thing is.  I think the messy, imperfect quality  adds more than if it were cleaner or more polished.

Such a drawing often inspires me to ask questions like who is this guy?  What's his story or does he fit into another story?  I sense another project coming on!
