Drawing Monsters, Updated

These are two sketches I did for a Mardi Gras parade poster, of course, as I'm sure you can tell. Which'll possibly be turned into a float even, with people on it throwing things, maybe even me.

Update. Here's a bonus drawing of King Kong. Did you know that in the original scritpt, King Kong was going to be a proboscis monkey?

Ahaha! This is cute. I love it. i think it would make a really cool float! Will you be able to get a picture of it if they do it?

Hey Lilly, I sure will. The parade itself is pretty small but very friendly; last year everybody liked it so much it kept circling the neighborhood for an extra hour or so.

No way! Kong would have been terrifying!

The latest news is; they already started building the float, and I just finished the drawing today.
