Baby Monsters
Monsters have babies too.
Baby monsters are even harder to find than the elusive "baby" pigeon. Very few folks can say that they've seen them, let alone created their portraits. I have been lucky. As you might imagine, monster parents can be a bit protective. Mothers in particular. They consider us (humans) more than a bit strange and potentially dangerous. It took most of my free time, lots of monster "treats" and carefully followed Monster Etiquette to befriend just a few of them. Even then, I felt a bit nervous and on edge as I made sketches of their most beloved offspring. It is always a good idea to remind oneself that monsters are ultimately unpredictable creatures, and should be given proper respect at all times.

One teeny, solitary baby stands precariously on Mom's scaly leg. While one hand grips mom's pointed claw, the other is wedged securely in her mouth. She (I think it's a she) seems both mesmerized and a wee bit nervous as I create her portrait. Mom's polished claws and stern expression (trust me on this) command my respect and encourage me to be quick and quiet as I finish. The tasty treats that I have offered her are running low.
This teeny, weeny baby is about the size of a large acorn. I found her around twilight, huddled on the forest floor, hiding amongst the fallen leaves and acorns, waiting for her mom to return with dinner. I kept my distance while I hastily made her portrait, knowing that she was somewhere closeby. The last thing I wanted to do was make this sweet baby anxious.
These four wee babies hide behind their mom's tentacles, peeking out to watch me as I create their portraits. One of them is too sleepy to pay much attention. Patient mom keeps a watchful eye on her brood as they scamper about.
