Monster Engine

I ran across a unique artist’s project last week. The premise is pretty cool. Dave DeVries is an illustrator that worked in comics and Universal Studios. He found himself intrigued by the monsters that his niece had drawn in his sketchbook, though, and... using line drawings that children did, he’d evolve them into drawings in 3D color and detail. I’m not doing a great job explaining. Here’s an example.

There are more sketches on his website. What’s great is that he doesn’t use the original sketch just for inspiration, but faithfully uses all the original lines that the kids draw. Very cool, huh? I like it! :)
