I decided to take on the Monster girl challenge last year... 
... and ended up not finishing it. I wanted to do something epic for #28~#30, and while it's more than halfway done, it's been months I didn't even look at it.

So I figured I might as well share the 24 other entries... This was made during fall 2012 or something.
#25 can be seen here; #26 and #27 aren't particularly memorable, but I may submit them later on.


It was a really interesting exercice to practice anatomy, I learned alot with this.
Assuming I find the motivation to finish it, I may give this kind of stuff another try, one day!

Always accompany their work on tumblr, your style is very interesting. I can see it in mockups... verry nice!

Eh, et pourtant, je suis pas satisfait de la moitié d'entre elles... :)
Je suis sûr que j'aurais pu faire plus original pour pas mal. Bah. 

Merci en tout cas! Et faut faire, ce genre de challenge (pas forcément des monster girls je veux dire), c'est super pour s'entrainer et s'améliorer en restant motivé. :)
Y'a pas vraiment de pression, pas d'objectif à part finir (-__-), c'est vraiment cool à faire.

Ah ouaip j'avais oublier que tu étais Fr.. XD

Pour la peine je vais rédiger un com en Fr un peu plus constructif (j'ai quand même du mal en anglais) parce que je suis vraiment fan de ton boulot.

Je suis vraiment impressionné par l'ingéniosité que tu as mis dans cette oeuvre.

Il y a vraiment des trucs bien pensé, le slime, le conflit cat vs dog ou encore les 2 références a la sauce Marvel avec cyclops et Ghost rider, je trouve vraiment intéressant.

Sinon techniquement ca déboite aussi, ton style cartoon rend vraiment le tout très éfficaces et cohérent, c'est vraiment du bon travail.

Je pense un peu comme RedAlchimy, c'est très enrichissant a voir et ca donne envie d'essayer!

Damn, you made my day.

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 4/23/2013 01:22

Well the main thing I learned is to try to find new ways to make things interesting. I tried to avoid as much as possible to do things you'd expect from the theme. A mermaid? I'll choose an unusual fish. A Ghost? Let's make a joke here. Multiple limbs? What would that be useful for? and so on. 
Coming up with fresh and unexpected ideas keep you motivated, and is much more interesting. :)

As for what I personally overcome, it was my problems with anatomy... No advices to give here, I just worked my ass off to make dynamic poses with decent proportions, etc. 

Last piece of advice : don't plan too big. That's what killed me in the end. -.-

Here's how the slime design went.
More or less.

mineninja2200 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/22/2013 23:21

 That slime one is a bit raunchy :P

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 4/22/2013 16:37

Very good concepts :D

 If you guys are interested in a sweet, SFW (except the first chapter, but only in theme, no visual unsafe content) Monster Girl manga, check out Centaur no Nayami. 

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 4/22/2013 15:05

Indeed! The piece you think of is part of the #28~30 that I never finished, I wanted to make a big scene covering all 3 last points... never made it. I still have the wip somewhere but, oh well... it doens't look good anyway. :/

#21 & #22 are part of the same thing as well! Pirate vs. corsair/musketeers!


Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 4/22/2013 15:01

Je me suis bien éclaté avec Cyclops. :D
Entre la boite de lunette de papa et la couleur de cheveux... :)

J'ai fait pas mal d'efforts sur le dynamisme et l'anatomie, content que ça plaise!

RedAlchemy (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/22/2013 14:56

This is wonderful! I have been thinking of doing this challenge as well and after seeing your interpretations of each of the monster types I would like to say that I am impressed. Each one of the characters has quite a bit of life and imagination, the style is clean and well developed. Is there anything you learned or challenges you overcame while working on these characters that might be useful for someone else attempting the challenge?

It would be great if you could finish the challenge just to see the climax of your hard work.

Either way well done!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/22/2013 14:53

Wow, awesome! I just started on it too, thanks to JohanVinet! :D

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/22/2013 12:56

 Number six reminds me of one of your pieces in the past. I like how to demon and the succubus are kind of part of the same thing.

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 4/22/2013 11:58

There is something extremely awesome about #3. I wonder what it is.

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/22/2013 11:54

Je trouve qu'il y a beaucoup de dynamisme dans ces petits sprites <3 Bien joué également pour le chara-design et notamment toutes les références que tu as faites (cyclops m'a bien fait rire)

Great job! :)

Dastal (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 4/22/2013 10:51

You did a lovely work. 

I love the feline and the naga haha.
