31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 6 - The Abominable Snowman

The Abominable Snowman (Yeti for short) is one of the best monsters out there for one simple reason . . . this guy is ABOMINABLE! The Abominable Snowman is said to be found in the Himalayas near Nepal, India and Tibet. This guy is a huge ape-like monster that has many similarities to the Bigfoot found in North America but he is covered in white fur with big teeth and clawed hands.

The Yeti has been featured in many movies, comic books, TV shows, and music. I think everyone can remember the Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas Special when "The Bumble" helps to save Christmas. Another of the better known versions would be the Wampa from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

A favorite of mine is ABOMINABLE by Pat Lewis you can read my review of it on my old blog I READ COMIC BOOKS it is a really fun story. The original version of the comic is no longer available but you can find it in the collection The Claws Come Out it will keep you in stitches all the way through.

As for my drawing well I wanted to go for funny and kind of cute so the Abominable Snowman waving hello seamed like it would be a good way to draw this monster and it has turned out to be my favorite so far for this blog. The colors are Copic Markers.
