Summary Monsters come in all sizes and textures! Soupy concrete, spiky scales, and rough rocks are just a few of the bizarre body types this ultimate guide contains. Readers will design their own monstrous characters who are good, evil, or something in between. Example backstories help readers create their own complex characters. They'll also learn important artistic techniques to enhance their storytelling, such as how to use body language to express a wide range of emotions. Spooky environments teach readers shading patterns and creepy angles. They'll experiment with shadows and light to create realistic, haunting scenes.
