The Vampire Entry # 6

The Vampire Entry # 6

Man all this makes me wanna do is sing the “Biiiiiig Trouble in Little Chiiiiiina” song, put on my porkchop express T and kick some energy vampire ass… great float btw!

The Vampire Entry # 2

The Vampire Entry # 2

You know Henry could easily be your evil sibling, kid, or some English pop culture reference I just miss… but instead, given the times, I chose it much more fun to believe this is a personification of Henry David Thoreau’s 1849 Essay on Civil Disobedience! (thank you high school) All that aside damn fine, psychotic, pigtails!

The Puca Entry # 2

The Puca Entry # 2

You know I gotta say I’m pretty happy that pop culture has finally allowed rabbits into the creepy category… I mean in old timey stories they just did nice stuff and looked adorable (well and pass along scarlet fever) … But, decades of cartoon violence and a cameo in a movie or two and nowadays we get murderbunnies galore! Serious points for making a carrot look just as cold and lifeless as this guys eyes!

The Devils Lake Monster Entry # 6

The Devils Lake Monster Entry # 6

Haha! So Wisconsin residents take note, when a european looks up your state on the internet, they don’t find your lakes, your cheese and cows, giant fiberglass animal sculptures atop businesses or even your beloved Packers… Nope what catches their eye, is a circus museum! And with those two smiling pinheads holding hands in front of their buddy the lake monster, I’m not going to complain!

The Charles Mill Monster Entry # 8

The Charles Mill Monster Entry # 8

Haha you know what i think I like best about this guy, well besides the obvious “flipper toes” is that if you could find a whiskered fish willing to wear a greenscreen body sock… then just dangle a few assembled soft plastic baits… and you could make a pretty entertaining movie version of this guy!

The Gaki Entry # 11

The Gaki Entry # 11

Ok so I have three favorite parts here… I can’t tell if those are pig tails or if it’s armpit hair… That creepy ass hint at a pelvic girdle behind his head… and the fact that for some weird reason I can’t not see that monitor as a sewing machine!

The Lady of the Lake Entry # 4

The Lady of the Lake Entry # 4

“Come on in, the water’s fine.” – Yesss such realism, cause there’s not a chance in hell that some, even vaguely, mammalian creature is going to live in water and not be full of beautiful, jovial, warmth holding blubber and come on… squooze into the floaty even!

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 21

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 21

Oh what fine rounded hatchwork you have mr turkey and dammit if that’s not my favorite type of comb… the one that looks like a waded up latex glove parked on your head… and might I remind you that the only person you’re really hurting with your attitude towards the holidays, is yourself!

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 9

The Turkey (2016) Entry # 9

“Here’s my turkey which came out looking far more seductive than I’d hoped for.” – haha you know, sometimes I just love you guys… especially the fact that, if you read between the lines, you had hoped that it was, at least somewhat, seductive! Which, I mean, she is!

The Kitsune Entry # 22

The Kitsune Entry # 22

Man that is an insane lil butt that tiny misshapen party goer and whilst obviously a blindfold, it’s almost more fun to assume its a civil war style bandage from a recent head wound… cause at that point, we don’t even know if he’s at the right party!

The Great Pumpkin 2016 Entry # 1

The Great Pumpkin 2016 Entry # 1

Kinda of a Great Pumpkin storyboard, vs just a drawing, but there’s nothing wrong with that! Sometimes you need a few extra frames to explain that you’re english, and that above all else, you like making giant pumpkins cry!

The Dingbat Entry # 4

The Dingbat Entry # 4

Haha I mean why wouldn’t a bat end every sentence with “eeep eeeep” right? Hell I might start doing it myself! And not sure if it’s just the caption or the tiny bouncing bullets but this pleasantly reminds me of that weird ass time when Godzilla talks in english to Anguirus for no good reason “Somethin funny goin on! You better check!…..”

The Hippalectryon Entry # 8

The Hippalectryon Entry # 8

Yes!!! The ol’ giant head tiny wings! You know the only thing keeping him afloat? Sheer determination! I’m trying to decide if the dude in the tower is doing the ministry of funny walks thing or just a simple big armed cheers… either way I always love the faraway details.

The Sphinx Entry # 8

The Sphinx Entry # 8

Ah yes! The old “Sphinx-ter” play! I’m going to argue that in a world where I debate the virtues of hastily created mythical beast drawings on a near daily basis… That sphinx’s question is totally valid! Plus his plaid makes me smile!

The Menehune Entry # 2

The Menehune Entry # 2

Man soooo pudgey! Like a lil grown up, nude, ‘roided, cabbage patchehune! Also, I’m pretty sure he’s standing next to Magnum PI!

The Selkie Entry # 4

The Selkie Entry # 4

Man that swim cap is beautiful! And what with that innocent lil seal mug I’m kinda hoping its just offering up a giant supportive but well padded hug vs something more lurid, but hey, to each their own!

The Bloody Bones Entry # 8

The Bloody Bones Entry # 8

Haha! I love these… cause a lil bit… you know this made the artist feel a tiny bit better about his/her day! But let’s take a second and examine those insanely zipper-like bone cleaning teef as I still stand by the old rule of the more teeth… the better to eat you with rule!

The Jorogumo Entry # 1

The Jorogumo Entry # 1

So super scary if you look at it from the eyes of some poor soul webbed to the wall… but kinda fun if you just throw in the “hate to see you go lady spider but I love to watch you leave!”

The Billdad Entry # 12

The Billdad Entry # 12

Now that’s the smirk of a seasoned predator! And dammit you know i have a thing for tiny dino arms, and those are perfectly useless! Though is he fishing in one of those urban sidewalk placed, communal dog bowls?

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 4

Baba Yaga Vs Pollo Maligno Entry # 4

haha! I’m not sure if its the scribble quality to the ink, the captioning, or the division of teams by place of origin, but this feels entertainingly political cartoon-y to me! Plus who doesn’t love a lil orphan stick puppet!

The Pegasus Entry # 7

The Pegasus Entry # 7

“In space no one can hear your whinny.” – Yes! Dammit I love me a good “Alien” reference and an old fashioned bubble style space helmet! But someone explain why this has me quietly humming that chubby Hawaiian’s version of “somewhere over the rainbow”?

The Ghoul Entry # 6

The Ghoul Entry # 6

Hahaha You know I just cant see this as anything but the television’s perspective (that’s “telly” to you brits) of watching that annoyingly big headed kid put his well worn copy of Zardoz in the vcr again. But I mean that in itself is Ghoulish right?

The Adaro Entry # 4

The Adaro Entry # 4

Finally an f’ing rainbow!!! I mean this feels like the cover for Surf Nazis Must Die and a collectible street sharks action figure card… how can one consider this anything but amazing?

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 9

The Flying Reindeer Entry # 9

It’s funny with all the random ramshackle contraptions a draw-er will use to put a reindeer in the air this week… I think I’m most nervous for this guy… I mean maybe it’s his overconfidence at the flamethrower or maybe its the proximity of those horns to the giant balloon keeping him aloft.

The Orang Pendek Entry # 6

The Orang Pendek Entry # 6

This works equally well if you assume he’s aggressively throwing gang signs or exclaiming “Mooooom! I think I broke both my hands! which is kinda magical…and props for the tiny peen!

The Wapaloosie Entry # 3

The First Place Wapaloosie Entry

It’s obviously a heartworm… but the kind that bores into you with love! Speaking of, I really love those stupid lil crayfish hands!

Judge’s Commentary – Two reasons! One: Cause when drawing your beast, including aspects that you can sell to syfy as a saturday night movie monster and plot is never a bad idea. And Two: Cause as many a bass would testify, it’s pretty hard to resist a wacky rigged worm!

The Turkey 2015 Entry # 7

The Turkey 2015 Entry # 7

Oh man he has enough dangling participles you could almost imagine him as a boss level on a sega genesis game… like first the wattle comes down in a fiery rain and eventually the whole bird is flying up and down trying to smash you with its plump breastesses… that is of course assuming he is capable of any level of movement… which is perhaps… questionable…

The Cynocephali Entry # 7

The Third Place Cynocephali Entry

You know some teachers will tell you there’s a lil something magical about perspective and foreshortening being off just enough to tell your story… here it adds this wonderful relaxing stretch and comforting warmth as your eyes roll down to the legs… well the fact that it has a frenchy head and is reading Jane Airedale doesn’t hurt that either… but you know what I mean!

Judge’s Commentary – Dammit if it’s not finally getting cold out and like a favorite sweater or hoodie, there ain’t a part of this that doesn’t feel warm and cozy…and that just feels right this week! I’m especially fond of that lil doggie grin!

The Mummy Entry # 10

The Mummy Entry # 10

“M.I.L.F!” – haha! I know you want me to say it so… Look at the aaaasp on that one! Yessss! Now mummyism aside, you did a phenomenal job on the leg wraps and I’m entertained that her toes look socked… And now I sorta want graph paper that also reminds me of the available assortment of carriage door configurations!

The Jersey Devil Entry # 4

The Jersey Devil Entry # 4

Man those are the sad eyes of a beast that cant actually touch his doll for fear of accidental, scissor hands style decapitation… I kinda love the butterfly wings! And I’m so curious if those are goaty “AA Aaaa”s or just how an englishman hears everyone from america’s east coast (I like the option later better btw!).

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 10

The Mokele-Mbembe Entry # 10

Hahaha! Oh man imagine having to tell the grandkids the story about the time Grandpa was smashed by a 1000 lbs udder! I’m not entirely sure I know where the cow parts came from but I’m damn glad they are there!

The Ogre Vs The Pukwudgie Entry # 13

The Ogre Vs The Pukwudgie Entry # 13

So every once in a while folks decide to go a different direction, but send me a copy of the creation they bailed from to share… This would be one of those instance, but I figure if i get to chuckle at an over-boobed ogre doing a magic inspired tiptoe dance for tips… well the rest of you should too! I mean look at that ogre! Like a delicate moth, barely touching the ground!

The Ogre Vs The Pukwudgie Entry # 7

The Ogre Vs The Pukwudgie Entry # 7

Ahhhh the old “you brought a dreamcatcher to a club fight” trope! The real question is whether thats even a bad call… I mean without dreams and something to aspire to what are we but hideous ogr….. oh?… hmmmm? yeah bad weapon choice!

The Sandman Entry # 10

The Sandman Entry # 10

Man good witchy visage! And a fantastic example of how happy my brain gets with a monster mostly unseen… I mean are we just missing a small cloaked figure or is this just a tiny visible point on an impossibly large inter dimensional worm beast? Also, missing eye or not, I’m pretty sure someone better get that kid a benadryl!

The Kappa Entry # 7

The Second Place Kappa Entry

You know I have no clue what that translates to, but I know it looks kinda like a leisure loving topless female from planet predator and that’s a combination as a nerd i can’t not love! Great below the water view btw!

Judge’s Commentary – We’ll the internet wont help me enough with the translation, so i figure placing it almost guarantees an answer… though i was pretty torn, a few of you had some pretty great stuff this week so I fell back to well established judging criteria of who had the most turtle boobs (aka toobs)!

The Onocentaur Entry # 9

The Onocentaur Entry # 9

So I’m torn between liking it better as a legless ron jeremy riding a donkey with a hop gated, paulsied front leg (like my 7th grade librarian obviously) or as a legged ron jeremy wearing hoofed gaiters and a donkey shaped cock puppet… either way the english version of the hedgehog has def seen better days!

The Far Gorta Entry # 4

the-far-gorta-4

Boney and begging.
Naked and fluttering wings.
Meek desperation.

The Beast Of Bray Road Entry # 11

The Beast Of Bray Road Entry # 11

haha god I love it so, maybe cause it looks a lil like a dicknosed monster who just found a bloodless ween in a beautiful cheesy moonlit glade…. but I’m pretty sure that’s a tallboy and not a dink and I’m going to guess you were going more for a party wolf having a good time on a friday night, so I can be happy with that too!

The Thunderbird Entry # 8

The Thunderbird Entry # 8

It’s funny, I know those are dream catchers in the wings but dammit in these modern times, if it doesn’t feel almost like a crazy, modern primitive, quadrocopter! And look at those lil lightning legs, assuming you’re not a nazi, those are adorable!

The Berserker Entry # 3

The Berserker Entry # 3

“Behold! My Enormous Chopper!” – Yes! get it? get it? That is on hell of a crazed war gaze and more possum clothes even!
