[ dave devries ] the monster engine

anyone remember the blog entry about photographer yeondoo jung, who takes children's drawings and turns them into real-life photos? when i blogged about that, andrea pointed me in the direction of the monster engine. this is a book (and a demonstration, lecture, and exhibition!) in which artist dave devries takes children's drawings of monsters and renders them as realistically as possible. he uses acrylic, colored pencil, and airbrush to add texture, color, and shading for a 3D effect.

what a fun and awesome idea! blogged just in time for halloween 2010.
