The Derpy Monster
The Derpy Monster was a project to develop a pet character for a crochet pattern blog :)
The requirement

To create a fun, friendly and wacky character pet for the blog; it had to be a monster and it had to be derpy. Otherwise the briefing was really open.
The work

To bring the DerpyMonster to fruition I stablished some ground rules:

• It had to be fun & derpy.
• It had to be easy to translate into a crochet pattern.
• It had to be simple enough to later be disguised/adapted and changed seasonally.

These conditions were stablished under the vision of creating a pet that could be turned into a freebie tutorial and reproduced every season to generate a collector’s effect.
These ideas were well received and after several rounds of feedback regarding style the final design was rendered and the seasonal derpies were illustrated!
