Everything You Need To Know To Draw The Devil’s Lake Monster

This Week the Devil's Lake Monster

Wisconsin’s Canoe Tipping and People Eating Tentacular Terror!

Battle Extended 1 Week
It’s tougher to bully you folks into drawing in the summer. So instead of forcing the issue, I’m just going to give some of our summer beasts a little more air, and throw an extra week in the mix again… mind you, that doesn’t mean dont draw, it just means do it at your leisure!

Our second in this summer’s series of America’s legendary aquatic aggressors, brings us to where I like to fish n swim the great, the great state of Wisconsin! In doing my research, I came across this intro from cryptopia And dammit if it’s not purdy enough, to just borrow!
Located in Sauk County, Wisconsin, Devil’s Lake is an eerie, mist shrouded, body of brackish water, Carved by glaciers during the last ice age, this bluff quarantined lake could generated a deep-bone chill even if it weren’t the alleged home of a of vicious aquatic monster.

Now this is one of those unique open ended beasts, where there’s not a hell of a lot to describe beyond whats in our tentacular subtitle. But the long version of the story dates back to early native americans going on a late night hunting trip. But their trip accross the lake was cut short by what far away witnesses heard, as erupting water, cracks and I can only assume screams of “it’s got tentaclesssseeeeeeeee!”. By the time those in earshot were able to investigate the hubbub. All the natives, boats, and beast were gone, and the lake once again a black obsidian calm.

It’s summertime, and attention spans are splattered with icy drinks, cottonwood and globs of softserve so I’m keeping these descriptors short and sweet! So get to it!

  • Big enough to flip a number of canoes
  • Has tentacles!
  • From the great state of Wisconsin!
  • Eats people
  • Ornery!

Judgement Is Complete

The Winning Devils Lake Beast EntryI pulled the power of judgement back for this one, as some of our judges are busy and some get married etc… but it does give me the opportunity to do what i do best, and that’s reward strangers who spend way more time than necessary doodling beasts for fun!

So let’s run through that list. I have no idea who this artist is (check). I’ve drawn, what 200 of these at this point, and colored maybe 3? (too much time, check… but mind you, unquestionably beautiful). And there’s no way in hell this artist wasn’t smiling whence this ship rocking, tenta-stached beauty was birthed. So for that Lia D, you earn a shirt for your second beast! I’ll be in touch.

Disagree if you must but know that judgement is law and to the winner a shirt will go…. Thanks to drawers and judges alike. And even though the contest is done we’ll always welcome new Devil’s Lake Monster drawings for the archives! So draw on, and remember, 25 beasts drawn earns you a shirt!
