DAILY MONSTER™ 209 – Red Carpet Edition IV (A NEW HOPE)
Just in the nick of time: HAPPY NEW YEAR from the Daily Monsters.™ Thank you for sticking with me for another year! 2010 is going to be brilliant! I can feel it in the air. May it bring you everything you wish for, and everything you need! And count on this: 344 LOVES YOU
Man, and to think I used to fuss cause you didn’t do any females! Monsters with sex appeal – who knew?
Happy New Year to you and all of your friends!
(Was that a monster smooch I saw there near the end?)
It was. And yes, I remember. Your comments about that have always stuck with me, Annie, and I’ve thought a lot about them. I still say that a great many of the Monsters could be either male or female. They have no obvious race or age, and most don’t have an obvious gender. One commenter saw one of these couples as same-sex, which I love!
But why not more obviously female Monsters? I just have a real resistance to making women look grotesque, even in a Monster way. I want them to look beautiful and elegant, and it just took me a while to figure out how I could do that with the Monsters. But I’m definitely going to explore it more. :^)
No worries. This one here could not be any more elegant and beautiful; From the first moment you sketched her in.
Thank you, Annie. Crazy, right? You won’t believe me when I tell you, but I was actually thinking that the pairings would look totally different. In fact, there was only supposed to be one. But the Monsters come through as they please. And I was delighted by these.
