A Kangachicken or Roosteroo - Learning to Draw

Today I have for you another of my attempts to learn to draw better monsters. You may remember my post last month about my discovery of 'How to Draw MONSTERS!" by Robert Pierce. I have had some more time to pour through the pages of this most excellent book and I have worked up another of the monsters found within. As a reminder, here is the book I am referring to...

On the urging of my wife I picked the Kangachicken or Roosteroo for my next monster to learn from. It is just too fun and is a nice combination of two different animals. Again, my hats off to you, Mr. Pierce, you would have made the six year old me extremely excited about drawing monsters with this book. Lets see how it is done...

Seemed pretty straight forward! I got to work on a Kangachicken or Roosteroo and this is what I came up with...

As before, I have nothing but complete admiration for the works of Robert Pierce and mean for this to be a celebration of his work and the joy of drawing. As with most drawing for me, this was a ton of fun to do. I sometimes feel that the drawings that have no purpose other then to be drawings are the most fun. I expect that you will see more tributes to Mr. Pierce's work here on the blog.

That is all for another exciting Wednesday, see you here on Friday! Until then...
