One of the themes I missed in my sketch group was "Any Movie Monster". So when the chance came up to catch-up on a topic, I got out my monster-hunting gear. I have always wanted to draw Gill-man; he's just so crazy looking. When searching for some reference, I found a production photo of Gill-man looming over Julie Adams. So I ran with that idea and this is what I ended up with. I am not satisfied with the level of contrast in the overall image. It feels a little too flat. Ah well, better luck next time.
