The Protector by krenx The Protector by krenx
Medium: Graphite

Sweet dreams, teddy has your back ;)

This is a concept I believe every one of us is familiar with as a child. Really happy to finally have the ability to bring it to life in drawing :)

Here's another version I'm sure all of you guys are familiar with! I had a bunch of ideas including this concept in thumbnails for my assignment, but coming across this illustration made me decide to go for this idea in the end.

Big thanks to the artist!…

i can't beleive i never thought of stuffed animals this way when i was a kid this is such a cool concept 8o
it amazes me how smooth and perfect everything looks, i don't see any noticable smudges and the perspective is really cool too! but one thing i noticed and this is just my train of thought cranking along: the monsters look quite whimsical and not too "serious" if u catch my drift and they're being fended off by a samurai teddy bear which is quite serious IMO XD i'm not sure what the point of that was it's just something that i thought about when looking at this. ur quite skilled with graphite and this is an amazing display of that ^^

Thanks you for your kind words! It's the squiggle technique of using a sharp pencil and just going in micro circles for many many hours; and you'll end up with this effect.
