The Ropen Entry # 4

The Ropen Entry # 4

You know high quality and especially puffy chested and well spine bumped Ropen rendering aside, what may have me the most entertained this week, is to learn that none of us have any idea how to translate what a volcano looks like, onto paper! Like I’m pretty sure that’s just a giant grease pen sticking out of the ground on this one!

Quetzalcoatl Entry # 8

Quetzalcoatl Entry # 8

haha! Sorry for another Gummo ref but You know this one cranks the Mortal Combat theme and curls lil bundles of silverware in front of the mirror!

The Pegasus Entry # 4

The Pegasus Entry # 4

I’m torn between making a Winnie the Pooh based Roo joke or commenting about how great this would look in black light paint so I’ll just let you run with whichever you’d prefer… but you better respect it’s majesty!

The Mummy Entry # 13

The Mummy Entry # 13

Is he emerging from a cloud of mysterious tomb dust? Or is this an artist self censoring with faux torn paper? As I’m not sure, but sorta feels like with the look of horror in those mummified peepers, he might just have been caught in a photo pantsless!

The Jersey Devil Entry # 5

The Third Place Jersey Devil Entry

Man I wish i could make out that button.. closest I can come is “Garvey Grape” which I’m just hoping was someone’s imaginary horses name… I mean if you’re gonna imagine a horse friend why not make him drool-y and bat winged right? Also those front legs are fantastically limp!

Judge’s Commentary – This is easy, anti-grav or upside down drips of blood, drool, whatever the fluid-ish substance is… will almost always get you in the top three!

The Polevik Entry # 5

The Polevik Entry # 5

Finally some good old fashioned lined paper again! Now can the allure of a hairy chest make up for the John Merrick-eque shoulder growth? well if 1970s America can count as a completed experiment… hell yes! Also that’s a really good “no way I’m holding a scythe to murder you” expression on this guys face!

the Mongolian Death Worm Entry # 8

the Mongolian Death Worm Entry # 8

Lil possible i have this guy turned sideways but hey given the option i like to look a death worm in the face plus those are pretty great wormy brows and who knew they had what appears to be a mud vein?

The Flying Heads Entry # 12

The Flying Heads Entry # 12

Hey I’m relatively positive this is supposed to be a “SneuBat”! So question… how does one tuck their hair behind their ear with no arms?

The Mantygre Entry # 13

The Mantygre Entry # 13

Oooh good use of water buffalo horns to keep the chimera geographically realistic! Anyone else getting a heavy Lady Elaine vibe from this one? And great tiger butt!

The Fur-Bearing Trout Entry # 13

The Fur-Bearing Trout Entry # 13

Pretty crazy how the awkward tilt of a mustache will affect you trust of a beast no? I mean I wouldn’t go near this dudes pond with waders on! Though, my own trust issues aside, i do have to admit he’s got enough signature aspects that he’d make one hell of a terrifying human hair based toy!

Beasts In Costumes Entry # 8

Beasts In Costumes Entry # 8

Vegetable lamb as Frankenstein’s Monster – Sweet! the ol pumpkin power pack plugged into the naval! gotta love biotech! And dammit I love when you kids run out of paper space!

The Baba Yaga Entry # 9

The Baba Yaga Entry # 9

Such an interesting take on a witches headdress, kinda robin hoody/acrony, no? Gotta love a batch of cookie shaped horror children, and great example of the old witch adage, if your gonna imprison a kid, do it in something thats way too small and can ideally hang from the ceiling!

The Beast Out of the Sea Entry #10

The Beast Out of the Sea Entry # 10

Haha, to steal a page from the Thug Kitchen commentary stylings, That looks magical as F*ck! How great is it that the eye patch works both as a wound that was healed and as a signifier of great evil! And are doodled bad teeth ever not great?

The Phantom Kangaroo Entry # 10

The Phantom Kangaroo Entry # 10

So the way that eye is shaded it almost makes me think this is a night vision shot? but everyone knows McDowells only serves babies from 5 am til 11… Big fan of the fat limb/thin limb thing you got going this week!

The Pope’s Donkey Entry # 5

ThePopesDonkeyEntry5

Hahaha… I’m just saying this one is oddly beautiful! maybe its cause it leans towards deer, maybe cause of that magical crooked claw, or maybe its just the cat head bra?

The Cockatrice Entry # 10

The Cockatrice Entry # 10

Even though I’m assuming this is meant as a depiction of Cockatrice on weasel crime… a small part of me reads the expression in that beasts eyes as entirely different and makes me wanna to steal one of my all time favorite lines from Conan… He’s Conan the Cimmerian(in this case Cockatrice)…. He won’t cry. So I cry for him…

The Pigsie Entry # 21

The Pigsie Entry # 21

Man such a good bleach bottle pig face! Someone slap this Pigsie five! And do those feet have pig nosed toes?!

The Hobgoblin Entry # 8

The Hobgoblin Entry # 8

I opened this, I laughed. I went back to the couch, thought about it and laughed again. So I had to put it up. I assume that’s ice cream.

The Oni Entry # 5

The Oni Entry # 5

Oh I love when this happens! So many tiny and slightly misshapen parts I don’t know what to love most? the teeny tiny little hand? That fabulous hair? Oh and those teeth!!! Hell I’m even gonna say I’m a sucker for the close set nipples!

The Nagumwasuck Entry # 7

The Nagumwasuck Entry # 7

Ok so am I the only one seeing the adorable lil muppet old lady face in this beasts chest hair… I mean maybe its my tendency to stare away from mountain teef, or i guess in this case we’ll just say Maine teef… regardless what i assume is a loincloth is pretty great and by far the best part if you ask me is the dueling anklets!

The Pollo Malingo Entry # 11

The Pollo Malingo Entry # 11

Ha! So the windmill is just for scale right? Just making sure I’m not missing that this is the first step in say some week long, alternate universe, Santeria blood festival? Kinda love the “combed” forward look on this guy and that his lil waddle or whatever looks like a bow tie!

The Giant Freshwater Octopus Entry # 7

The Giant Freshwater Octopus Entry # 7

Ha! I swear there’s something familiar about that victim! I remember when i was a lil kid drawing and I would always painfully try and match the size of the sucker to the taper of the tentacle… and had I only known its just 1000 times more fun to blast a bunch of circles in the general vicinity of where they could be… plus, mismatched suckers are badass! Great green teeth too!

The White Worm Entry # 10

The White Worm Entry # 10

So cause his tongue looks a lil like a pretty valentines heart… does that mean he’s like an angler fish of lost love?… no… cause he’s out to sea on an iceberg and I’ve seen Cabin Boy so I know sailors are salty foul mouthed dogs not carrying for the likes of love nor stuffed monkeys… so I’m just gonna say the heart tongue is one of those unique coincidences… and how great are the multitude of lil nubbly rotten teef we’re getting this beast!

The White Worm Entry # 7

The White Worm Entry # 7

hmmm so floating iceberg in the foreground with a giant bloody eyed doom maggot on a branch? or same bloody eyed doom maggot but sitting in front of a distant ocean facing ice cliff? Regardless seems like a pretty nice spot to metamorphasize… if you were to ask me and if that’s a word?

The Peryton Entry # 8

The Third Place Peryton Entry

Ha! you know I was just looking at a few of my beast drawings from when I was lil and those feathers are exactly how i used to draw dinosaur scales… And it’s a funny realization that things I am most uncomfortable with in real life (like hill teeth) are some of my favorite things to see in drawings!

Judge’s Commentary – You know it’s a simple as this, he/she sorta looks like it’s curtseying which if it is the case is adorable or if not it looks like it really has to pee and that’s enough for me!

Old Man Coyote Entry # 9

The Old Man Coyote Entry # 9

Well first and foremost as a huge proponent of chalkboard paint, bravo to you for having a scribble wall, and secondly having my own scribble wall, i am familiar with the nothing is really ever erased property of the medium… so does that just say “tits” through the middle of his shoulder? And I feel like he’s dressed for a beer, but is that instead a steaming cup of java?

The Mock Turtle Entry # 4

The Mock Turtle Entry # 4

Man good floating perspective… and also might i add, introspective? Though watch enough multiverse specials and you’ll realize that you’re wallowing in your turtly woes for naught because you are in fact a real turtle as well as a very successful tap dancer and probably in many universes a delicious Amburger (for amphibian)

The Centaur Entry # 9

The Second Place Centaur Entry

You know I’m not sure what I like best, the string of outdoor party lights, the perm, or the fact that he’s already poured your glass of wine before asking if you want one!

Judge’s Commentary – Second place goes to #9. I would totally go get drunk with that saucy horse man. That half-in-the-bag-come-hither gaze has me imagining what kind of bad pick up lines centaurs would use. Also, I’m a sucker for the romantic glass bulb string lights.

The Krasue Entry # 6

The Krasue Entry # 6

Oh man what a good old hollywood actress style tendon neck! And speaking of hollywood this one has lots of that “the smell of my own lip worries me” face made famous by that Twilight, girl…. And don’t think that I haven’t noticed that there are officially too many characteristics present here to deny that this is Sneurism any longer, which i also think is pretty great

The Axe Handle Hound Entry # 9

The Axe Handle Hound Entry # 9

So lil bit of forced perspective or is this like a Clifford sized axe hound, cause I kinda like the idea that a lumberjack tale getting the old Bunyany supersizing… And I love that if you lose that cliff discerning vertical line, this guy is just standing on the end of a giant tree lined finger!

The Hopkinsville Goblins Entry # 8

The Hopkinsville Goblins Entry # 8

Seriously guys… whats with all the shooting? isn’t it pretty obvious I have a hurty finger and I’m looking for some medical assistance here? I’m also greatly entertained that this one feels a lil less spaceman and a lil more “kentucky special” squirrel turtle hybrid, and that somehow, my dead grandmas awkwardly modern couch made this pic!

The Lil Owl Entry # 15

The Lil Owl Entry # 15

Does it get any sweeter than an owl pooping hearts? I’m not sure that it can! And somewhere there’s a person convinced that they are being stalked by the number 52 looking at this, who just got a little crazier!

The Wendigo Entry # 12

The Wendigo Entry # 12

Hahaha, so is it just wandering through the woods with a crazed look touching herself? And with the heel of her hand no less? I’m calling this is one of those situations that’s funny as hell on paper… but get confronted with it in real life and most folks are turning to run!

The Gumberoo Entry # 6

The Gumberoo Entry # 6

It’s got the head of a scarred yet good natured, Pliskin-esue action hero and the body of a sexy cubist nude… I’m sold!

The Cyclops Entry # 8

The Cyclops Entry # 8

Oooh those floppy goat ears are so oddly fitting, and a tiny bit it makes me think her face is stamped on the bottom of a sea turtle… though I think that would mean she would have a very toothy cloaca…

The Christmas Elf Entry # 18

The Christmas Elf Entry # 18

Is it just teh mustache that makes this dude feel like an old timey big game hunter? cause it feels like the whole thing just screams Ace Ventura two style roomfull of death… Murderer or not i do love his teeny tiny elfin feet and penchant for candy of the cane variety…

The Skunk Ape Entry # 7

The First Place Skunk Ape Entry

So there were a couple weeks where i sorta bounced back and fourth whether i thought this artist was really drawing our own Sneurat as beast in a counter to her Seanist movement… with this one there can be no doubt…. cause she really loves kittens… jeeze… where did you think i was going with that?

Judge’s Commentary – Something about the big brown eyes, and maternal pose with the kitties gets to me. (Yes, I realize those cats might get thrown.) Reminds me of Gorillas in the Mist, or at least Congo. Soulful, but with stink-lines.

The Hoop Snake Entry # 6

The Hoop Snake Entry # 6

Having had a number of friends over the years have snaky pets, I can confirm that this is one of those dick things snakes do… they just cant be bothered to finish swallowing something before going into the rest of the days activities… I mean you would think there would be some rule like no hooping for a half hour… but i suppose they are cold blooded, so maybe that half hour would have to be a week?… hey maybe i get snakes after all!

2013 Turkey – Submission # 7

2013 Turkey – Submission # 7

When the turkeys cry – Let them know we tried – ‘Cause when the turkeys sing – Then the new world begins… man how the f*ck did i remember the lyrics to a white lion song… anyways good high contrast tail feathers on this one!

Beasts On Skates Entry # 8

Beasts On Skates Entry # 8

Yes a Medusa on skates! And since she’s part serpent I’m totally giving you a pass on the wibbledy wobbledy bone structure! Biggest issue I see is having to find an entirely new, not turned to stone, fanbase for each event…
