Drawn in Biro - a demon

When drawing monsters, usually I draw with anything to hand, and more often than not I always have a biro handy for writing my stories so I just use one of these to sketch my ideas out, as the same principals apply when applying hard and soft pressure for your shading techniques, and you can simulate some good effects just like you use a pencil for drawing.


Demon - Drawn In Biro For Artistic Effect

Dark Demonic Devil Serpent

This design was a real pleasure to draw as you can tell from this blog that I love to draw monsters and demons, and am in the process of drawing my epic 10 graphic novels and one of them features demons and a range of monsters that I created as a child.

There is just something about creating creatures from your imagination that is just so satisfying, to start with a blank piece of paper and you then end up with a monster or a drawing of a character that could fit into a fantasy world of any sort.

Full A4 page size drawings like the one below can depict all the elements that you want to and it also provides a reference if you need to develop your sketch idea later on.
