In this first DVD of a series, Terryl demonstrates how to create a fantastic yet utterly believable creature based on one of the most commonly known animals, the domestic cow. After drawing a study of an actual bull, she shows the process of designing a realistic “Moo Monster”. Starting with rough thumbnails and ending with a fully rendered action-packed color illustration, she shares her techniques and tools – pencils, markers and tracing paper – as well as a thorough exploration of animal anatomy. During the course of the demo, Terryl shows how she indicates forms and planes, how she chooses and applies color, and how the underlying skeleton and muscular systems affect the surface anatomy. Above all, she emphasizes the “Why” of the creature – how its lifestyle and environment affect its design and appearance. She also instructs how to create a humorous character derived from the more realistic versions for a truly versatile, professional portfolio.
