Would you be able to Copy the effects of Monstrous if the effect had already been applied to the target card before attempting to copy? For example, could Artisan of Forms copy a monstrous Fleecemane Lion and be hexproof and indestructible as well?
Monstrous is not something that can be copied, but the Artisan can copy the Lion and copy its abilities and become monstrous by using the copied monstrosity ability and get the extra effects that way.
However, once your Artisan becomes monstrous, it's monstrous and can't become monstrous again.

So could my Artisan copy Fleecemane, become monstrous via its effect, and then copy another creature and STILL be monstrous?

Ah i get it. Thanks for the help man!
What would happen if I copied a Shipbreaker Kraken made it monstrous then made it a a copy of something else would the creatures it tapped remain tapped.
The creatures would remain tapped. The "remain tapped" effect lasts as long as you control that object, it's not reliant on the ability still being there. The fact that the Kraken changes its name is also irrelevant because it's still the same object.

I have a related question actually....Could you Say using the illusionist bracers copy the monstrosity ability and choose a new target for it?
You could copy it, but Monstrosity doesn't target, so you can't choose a new target for it.
so in retrospec it would hit the stack twice, the second ability "fizzling" becuase the creature is already monstrous. thank you.
Artisan of Forms
If Lion is Monstrous, it has Hexproof and an opponent's Artisan can't copy it because it can't target it.
You could use your own Artisan to copy your own Lion, but Monstrosity does not get copied: even if Lion is Monstrous, the Artisan-copy won't be.

If the Fleecemane Lion is controlled by the same player as the Artisan of Forms (or a teammate of that player), the Artisan's ability can target the Lion.
