A housewarming gift for a dancer we know locally.
Ink on Strathmore paper. Also, an exercise in line convergence.
And the final third installment:
This was fun to make, and turned out the worst nightmare fuel of three.
I managed to match every requirement: red glowing eyes - supplied by the canine; scaly purple skin - demodex mange; pointy fangs - the parasite's mandibles; blood diet - the parasite interferes with swallowing; spikes along the back - fungal fruiting bodies; unusual behavior - the brain fungus controls the canine; bipedal hopping - brain infestation results in forelimb paralysis and atrophy as a side effect.
Yes, it is all inspired by real parasites. Tongue lice are real isopods (i.e. related to the woodlice) attacking freshwater fish, Cordyceps is a real brain-controlling fungus some species of which burst out with fruiting bodies out of the host arthropod's body while it is still alive, and Demodex canis is an actual canine parasitic mite which is responsible for at least several "chupacabra" sightings which were bad cases of the mange it causes. The need for a parasite-infested dog to be parasitised by a parasite infested by yet another parasite, and then for the disease to get advanced, explains why these cryptids are so rare.

I love your work on the three C.O.W.s, they are really nicely designed.
This most recent (elephant drawing) is absolutely adorable!
I am going to be amazing! .
The first concept for this was the Easter Bunny with Moses beard and snake staff releasing mice from a mousetrap. "Let my people go".
It was scrapped for being 1) overly complicated and 2) beyond silly.
I love your sense of humor and line weight
