Monster Squad

This is my first attempt at character illustration, so I've got a lot to learn, BUT -- I think my first batch of characters came out alright! I love using India ink with C3 nib -- I'm a sucker for thick black lines. Here are the first 4 characters of my Monster Squad:

REBELLIOUS | CHILDISH | NINJA

This guy was inspired by my husband as a child -- complete with the little school uniform. He's smoking cigs and has ninja stars for hands.

FANCY | ANXIOUS | GUARDED

This little girl is more like me -- adorably stressed at all times. She's got sharp scales along her back to keep her safe. I also think it looks like she might have to pee?

FOCUSED | FIERY | RHYTHMIC

Here we have our aspiring ballerina. She has the passion of the best, but will never have the grace.

VAIN | MAJESTIC | CURSED

This monster is without gender. Though the face is put together immaculately, nothing else on the body seems to match. Still, one must wear a feather boa if they want to be taken seriously.

I would love any feedback or tips! I'm having so much fun creating new characters -- it's inspiring me to pen a book!
