A fab reworking of Perseus and Medusa! Wonderful use of materials and the picture really tells the story! Judges’ comments:
Wonderfully creative monster and great colours – the Suscrofarachnid looks absolutely terrifying! The wails of the monster’s vicitms are the icing on the cake of this horrible horrible scene. Judges’ comments:
Love the colours! There’s a real sting in the tail of this one! Judges’ comments:
I didn’t think anything involving dolphins could be scary…I stand corrected! Judges’ comments:
The Menohoake is so inventive! I love the combination of different monsters and animals and the name! Are they battling each other? I hope they’re not teaming up! Scary! Judges’ comments:
Medusa = scary. Medusa with wings = very scary. Medusa with two sets of wings = off the charts. Judges’ comments:
The glee that the monster clearly takes in petrifying her victims is truly awful! Scary. Love the faces on the snakes and the petrified people! Judges’ comments:
Love the creative use of materials and especially the expression on Google Bob’s face! (Brilliant name too)
A fun monster – like the use of two types of media – drawing and model Judges’ comments:
Brilliant names, and the Theban Worm is particularly terrifying! What’s worse than snakes for hair? A massive snake body, that’s what! Judges’ comments:
Love the crossover!
Brilliant colours, horns too and the details on the wings and a fire tail. I like the thought behind the name too. Judges’ comments:
I’ll never go in the sea again! A terrifying vision of Scylla! You’re gonna need a bigger boat. Judges’ comments:
So bright! a cyclops dragon with spiked back and fire-tail. Really imaginative and brought to life too I love the flames! Love the 3D spikes and the flamey tail. Very colourful – looks like a cross between a scifi aircraft and massive bird Judges’ comments:
Nice traditional idea, but with the burning red eyes too! I’d be running in the opposite direction! I wouldn’t want to bump into HIM in the labyrinth! Judges’ comments:
That’s one monster I wouldn’t want to see around the campfire! A brilliant use of materials! Who says furry equals cute?! Judges’ comments:
This looks like a monster that’s flow straight out of the myths! Winged dragon bird beast! I love the way this monster is made from all the parts. There’s a lot going on here. All of it scary. Judges’ comments:
I suspect the cute cat face hides a fierce temper! A very clever use of materials.
Kinda cute as well as looking like it could bite my hand off… Judges’ comments:
This is absolutely stunning, this captures the emotion behind the myth, but also questions the monstrous aspect of the monster too. The Greek is an extra touch too! Judges’ comments:
The thinking behind this monster is brilliant…and terrifying in equal measure! So much detail – really well thought out! Such an unusual and imaginative idea – and very scary. Judges’ comments:
I hope I haven’t checked out any of Dr Mythout’s books!
So imaginative! She has thought outside of the box and created a fun unique monster. Judges’ comments:
Nightmare seems very appropriate for this fearsome creature. I like how this has many eyes like Argus! Judges’ comments:
Looks like an awesome monster from a video game, I’d like to be on her side in the monster battles as she looks like she’d win each time! Wonderful little evil fairy – a very different type of monster Judges’ comments:
Very scary and creative!
Really good fun – classical type monster with very modern media.
