15 Children’s Monster Drawings Painted Realistically

Monster Drawings

I’m not sure if any of you have ever heard of Dave Devries, but if you haven’t, he’s an exceptionally creative artist.  His site, The Monster Engine, is a look at a child’s imagination as it pertains to monsters.  And what Dave does with those monsters is quite fascinating actually.  He describes it as this…

The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

The results wind up being pretty bizarre but I have to say, it’s kind of cool to see what your doodles as a kid would look like in the real world.  I’ve selected 15 pictures that I think are awesome.

Enjoy
