www.Aintitcool.com is having a little "Cabin in the Woods" contest for a "visual companion" book... Not sure exactly what that is, but it has all kinds of background on the movie... design... script... anyway I WANT IT.
I want it because I loved the movie, and I love Joss...
Anyway, the idea of the competition is as follows:
"Now, for you arty folks, I want to see an illustration (a quick sketch
or a rough doodle will suffice) of a monster of your own design in the
Cabin in the Woods universe. I know that’s a tall order given the film,
but I have faith in you."
Sounds like another MILLION BAD DRAWINGS contest to me!
This is what I sent in:
You know, as I step back from the drawing and see a photo of it, some of the problems are a little more clear... HOWEVER, I still like it. It's rare I like something I draw, but I do like this. Fuck ups and all. (By fuck ups I mostly mean the tentacles... they bug the shit out of me, but I had no idea how to draw them... this is where you use reference kids!)
Anyway, I needed a monster, something that I would hate to see come at me in the cabin. Well I find creepy kids terrifying... I also find bowl cuts terrifying. Kids with bowl cuts are the worst... so I figured give it a blank stare and tentacles and I would shit my camping shorts should I run across it at a cabin.
