Illustration Friday - "Monster"

*Click for Larger*



Just a quick digitally painted sketch for the latest Illustration Friday; prompt of "Monster."

Anyone who takes their anger out on a child, physically or verbally, is a monster.

Listening to Gary Jules "Mad World" (from the Donnie Darko soundtrack) while drawing this:


Gotta get back to the Wizard of Oz sketch cards. Still a couple hundred to do.

Thanks for lookin'.

Aaaaaaaarrrrrgggg! Too scary Ray!!
Good job, excellent in fact!

the heartful blogger said...

This is scary, the little hand being held in his huge fist is what really makes it for me.

Tulipland said...

really scary ! nice monster illo!

Cindy said...

For a topic that can lend itself to all manner of fantasy and even cute monsters, yours is not only truly monstrous, but within the realm of actual possibility. It makes me squirm, and hope someone can rescue that poor child!

Very well done!

szuc said...

that's great. I like the loose/quick strokes. (and that you included mood music)

gabriel francisco said...

It's is racist.
Why a black ma?

Ray Dillon said...

Definitely not racist, man. That's just silly. FIrst, he's not black (though the color I used for skin tone is confusing, I admit). He's a real (white; redneck, actually) person that I know of. Unfortunately, this person actually exists.

Even if he was black the assumption that it's racist is pretty silly.

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words.

Very powerful!!! real scare show here, sometimes this is reality, the worst kind of monster.

Mehlika said...

The situation being actual and a part of the real world makes it the most monstrous of all the monsters here at the I.Friday.

Lori Witzel said...

Dang -- that !@#$% person is someone real, not just a concept.

Have they gotten themselves right (thru therapy, jail time, whatever?)

Makes ME angry just thinking about them whompin' on some child. My Avenging Monster gets her hackles up.

james gustavson said...

Ah! This is a monster...I'm pleased as punch. To me this is more of a monster than GODZILLA (Japan is his final resting ground) The idea is HERE!

michael dailey said...

LudaChristian said...

so true!

i really like the lighting on his face... nicely done.

Alina Chau said...

very strong painting!

A very good illustration; though very sad.

FYI; in case you didn't know; "Mad World" was originially done by "Tears for Fears" on "The Hurting" album; the entire album is directed towards this issue; as I think the album "Songs from the Big Chair" is. They derived thier name from "primal therapy".

Ray Dillon said...

Hey, everyone!! Thanks for the great feedback and kind words.

Yes, unfortunately this guy is real and has yet to see consequenses for his actions. Hopefully soon.

ascenderrisesabove - I did not know that. I'll definitely be looking for that album. Thanks!

catnapping said...

very well done. i can see the vessels popping in his face! i remember seeing that face before, and i agree. a monster.

carla said...

This puts us in the place of the poorchild - I can't imagine how terrifying it would be to see this face and know it belonged to my parent. Very powerful!

Aravis said...

This is a powerful illustration with an excellent message!

cenhockey55 said...

this illo really sends a great message and the shadowing that you used really help send that message of being evil and a monster

Ai Wu said...
