I got Creatures at the Flea Market today! Big guy was only $5 and was a CVS exclusive at one point. Nick got a super old cook book and a ghost pepper plant.
Reblog this and include a picture and/or name (as long as I can look it up for more references, if need be) of the most terrifying monster you’ve ever seen, and I shall try to draw it. (I sometimes tend to draw sexy Rule 63 of monsters that strike my fancy, jsyk.)
So I’m really lazy about using the scanner, but had to scan a commission, so I figured I might as well scan some various other doodles. *shrug*
This was posted on the Trash Pack facebook page today… omfg, they’re SO CUTE… series 1 Blow Fly & an orange Trash-A-Pillar. I wish to snuggle them. <3
Some series 3 Trash Packs & cards I got a week or two ago, got many more since but I’ll get better pics of them when I have access to the camera at home! Used Nick’s cell for these. :3 I’ve already got a huge stack of the cards now and we’ve been making up our own games with them. So fun :D I already have a few extra of the Trashies, and I’m loving the squishy “wall crawler” ones.
HERE was the first post I ever made when I first started collecting series 1… ah, memories <3
Some of you may remember this post, I’m finally sharing some of the screenshots I took of this amazing, beautiful film. There are so many more interesting aspects and scenes, but I mostly am sharing my favorite creatures from it.
My RM snowglobe is here already!!! Omg omg omg <3 I will get better photos of it later, but for now, here it is with all my RM plushes. The rest of my RM collection can be seen ~HERE~ on my flickr. It’s still nothing compared to my friend Lauren’s, though!
So inspired. This art is like, every awesome nightmare/daydream/fantasy I’ve ever had. That 70’s fantasy art look mixed with horror and all those rich, yet dark rotty colors, organic textures and detailed, squishy appeal even in their linework. The massive, horrific monsters with gorgeous girls lost somewhere in their enormity. The surreal, alien aspect loaded with eye candy that you just have to keep going back to and finding new things. The chaotic, hellish scenes that feel humid and hot where you can almost hear the creatures writhing over each other all around you. The eyeball tentacle monsters and naked chicks. Did I mention my love for hot girls interacting with grotesque monsters and hot girls AS grotesque monsters? I wish my deviantART gallery looked a bit more like this. It used to, but then it steadily got more tame. Time to go back to my roots. *paint, paint*…
At least Sludge Can & Dead Tyre are safe from the giant trash-eating menace in their garbage truck…
<3 Trash Paaacks!!! And so does my kitten, Eyeball. :>
Another ATC for sale! I really can’t wait to grab ahold of a camera so I can get some pictures in natural light - like most of my stuff the vibrancy doesn’t really scan well.
I really like his teeth.
So much want. That mouthhh<3 sighh
October 17th’s monster on my list of 31 Favorite Monsters is… yet again a group of monsters (or rather, mutants called “Engineers”), all the sexy monster girls from Tokyo Gore Police. I suppose if I had to choose a favorite, it’d be the one who’s actually the least monstery, the amputee girl with katanas for limbs. She has awesome bondage gear and makes adorable puppy noises.
If you’re a fan of ridiculous and creative gore/freakshows, you should watch the other horror titles by Yoshihiro Nishimura such as The Machine Girl, Meatball Machine and Mutant Girls Squad.
Also… Woot 100 followers! Thanks! :D
October 10th’s monster on my Top 31 Favorite Monsters list is one of several mythological creatures to eventually emerge on my list - the Monster of Ravenna. It reminds me of a few of my other favorite monsters (one of which will be popping up eventually), and I’ve always been intrigued by its design and history.
In March of 1512, a well respected Florentine apothecary named Lucca Landucci made quite a startling entry into his diary. He described a monster born in Ravenna.
It was considered an omen of God’s anger with the Italian people and, as such, it various disjointed parts could be “read” metaphorically. The letters XYV were on its chest. The arms never developed, scholars claimed, because the Italians showed a conspicuous lack of good deeds. Because the Italians had no firm dedication to any cause, their fickle, flighty nature was reflected in the Monster’s wings. The beast was a biological hermaphrodite, and its double set of genitals illustrated sexual immorality: lust, sodomy, bestiality. The great ugly claw was greed, and the knee-mounted eyeball betrayed a covetous love of material things; the single horn— overweening pride. Depending on the story that accompanied The Monster, its wings were either bat-like or angelic. Sometimes the Monster was a Saint, and at other times The Devil itself.
While no one is certain as to what the monster really was, it was almost certainly a child born with a severe and unusual genetic disorder (possibly Roberts Syndrome). It is said that it was born March 1512 by a woman from Ravenna. According to legend it grew to adulthood and proceeded to terrorize peasants in the Italian countryside. More likely, the child died soon after birth. It is also believed that Pope Julius II ordered the baby starved to death.
