The Monster Engine

Dave Devries takes children's sketches of monsters from their imagination and renders them in paint, while keeping the scary details.
The process is simple. I project a child’s drawing with an opaque projector, faithfully tracing each line. Applying a combination of logic and instinct, I then paint the image as realistically as I can. My medium is mixed—primarily acrylic, airbrush, and colored pencil.

ted: Of course, there is nothing wrong with the children's pictures. They are fine the way they are, but the children don't have the technical training to really give body to the monsters in their minds' eyes.

Cool... There's a museum up here that has an exhibit of something similar, but it's done in glass:
