What Kids’ Drawings Look Like Painted Realistically

Artwork from Dave DeVries "The Monster Engine"

Artist Dave DeVries has plenty of experience painting monsters for Universal Studios and bringing comic book characters to life in realistic paintings. However, the sketches done by his four year old niece intrigued him more than grown up monsters and he began applying the same techniques to drawings by children.

The result is an art installation and book called The Monster Engine, pairing the original drawings with interviews with the child and the final painting.
