Look out, guys! Here comes Destry! He's a wolfman! A werewolf! Whichever you prefer! Above is yet another one of the portraits that was commissioned in October as a part of Monster Portrait Month. Something about my pal Destry's photo just howled "Wolf!" Little did I know the Wolfman is his favorite of the classic monsters!

|Just a couple of sketches I did while trying to learn to capture Destry's likeness and wolfiness.|
Next, it was time to get a grasp on drawing Destry accurately and to plan out his "monsterized" form!

Here I begin the final piece with a light drawing of "regular Destry." Even "regular Destry" is still a special guy, just so you know.
I carefully erased parts of the drawing and added more wolf-like qualities. The technical term is "monsterizing."
And viola! A wolfman named Destry! Thanks for taking a look at my process on this one. To see the other monster portraits go here. There are still a couple of monsters on their way!
