They did the Mash! Dun-a dun-a Dun!
They did the (say it with me now) MONSTER MASH!

Copic marker base colour with a splash of watercolours on top, add brush and ink linework, then a touch of gouache for the fur. Then mishmash them about in photoshop.

Monster mash double feature

Been listening to a lot of Blue Oyster Cult at the moment, these two are based off some songs I like. And I'm zeroing in on a texture brush I like, exciting stuff!
