Step 1

Draw a shape that looks like a gloopy hairstyle, or a melting scoop of ice cream.

Step 6

Underneath that line, add another splodge. We’re going big on the splodge theme. Enjoy it. You won’t get swamp on the paper.

Step 7

Under the second scoop of swamp ice cream, add a slightly looping line. That will eventually become the swamp monster’s mouth. Yes, it’s shouting something like, ‘Aaaaargh!’.

Step 8

Add some big eyes under the first line you drew. See how it’s staring at you? It’s jealous of your clean clothes.

Step 9

Add lots of lines like the example below. This will give your swamp monster a gloopy appearance, like they’re the Boss of Gloop Town.

Step 10

Take some different green pens, pencils or colouring pencils and fill in the various layers. It looks disgusting now.

It doesn’t have to look like overcooked cabbage!

You could draw a massive eye and add some horns and a tail. That purple is quite menacing, isn’t it?

What about twin swamp monsters?

There’s a term for this kind of gloopy creature: double trouble!

What about this three-eyed swamp monster?

It’s like cross between Jabba the Hutt and a big, melting pile of chocolate. With a tongue. Whatever you choose, don’t forget to make swampy sound effects when you draw!
