Sock Dragon & Vampire Monkey

I keep meaning to write a little post about these brilliant drawings by my god-daughter, she did them a few months ago when she was 8. She’s definitely got a talent with paper and pencil. I thought they were just right to work up into sock versions. This one is Rocky the Dragon, I particularly like his eye detail and great big toothy grin…



and this one is a rather scary vampire monkey, complete with scars, wounds and squirting blood!

I really enjoyed making these from her drawings. I took a photo of each one alongside the drawing and put them into picture frames so she had Rocky the Sock Dragon and her brother had Vampire Sock Monkey for their 9th birthdays (a couple of days before Christmas).

I gave her a set of Sharpie pens and drawing pad for Xmas so I’m hoping I might get to see some new creature designs 🙂 Hint Hint!

    Those drawings are impressive especially for such a young age. (Sad to say, she already has me beat in the drawing department.) My niece was like that. As it turned out, she became an high school art teacher!

    I do love all the details in these creatures. You did a great job of getting them to resemble the drawings. I can’t imagine how you got that dragon head shape, but it’s perfect. Like the flattened limbs, too. Cool cape on the vampire monkey!
