Even Monsters Like Hugs *Charity + Win Shirts* by tessary Even Monsters Like Hugs *Charity + Win Shirts* by tessary
*EDIT EDIT* Enter the raffle to possibly win a shirt, subscription & other prizes! How to enter: [link]

C'mon, everyone needs a hug sometimes, even monsters! *Vote by clicking the "I'd wear this" button to the right, pleeeease vote for it and share it around if you like it! (:*

See the front/back on the original template > [link] The white version's got that kinda retro-misaligned print-look to it.

:star:Yes, I will legitimately donate a quarter of the prize money to the Variety Charity [link] if this prize places in the top 3. The reason I've decided to do this is my 4-year-old cousin was born with severe hearing difficulties and as a result could not learn to speak. However, Variety stepped in and my Aunt was able to afford surgery to fix his condition, he is now older and although learned to speak later than usual, he's doing really well and is a perfectly normal, happy kid (: I love him to bits so I figure I should do something to give back to the organisation that gave to him. If you support my cause, please vote and share this shirt (:

what works well for me here is the composition. I also like the whimsical character styling and the line work, and the way that the color appears to be intentionally off register. If I had anything to say negative about your piece, the only thing would be where the baby monsters head is nuzzling to the mommy monster. I get it that it is supposed to give the effect of softness but I would like to see the babies whole face.

Great drawing though. I definitely like that it is hand drawn. That is the way I like to work as well. It gets my vote.

If possible please check out mine and return the favor.

Love this! Is there any place I can buy this shirt??
tessary Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yes there is, I'm starting up a brand, actually, and was thinking of making this shirt a reality! (: would you be interested ?

Yes! I would be very interested in this shirt and would look at other things you're creating as well. You've got a lot of skill and great potential.

wow, thanks very much! When I get my brand up and running (starting with t-shirts, later branching into other apparel and merch) I'll be sure to post a journal about it here on deviantart. (:

Any chance you'll be selling this through another site? Out of all the entries, I legitimately LOVE this win and would totally be willing to drop some cash on it (: The little message at the bottom really touched my heart as well.
