Darkling

By
"They must know it was the rats; the slithering, scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race behind the padding in this room and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats they can never hear; the rats, the rats in the walls."

He may not be a rat but he has a certain rodent-like aspect and was immediately put in mind of "The Rats in the Walls". The creature is based on the nasty subterranean horrors in the movie "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark".

Definately having a few problems with image compression in the areas of darker shade on the face. An unfortunate loss of detail which I have attempted to compensate for...

EDIT: Some minor changes. Spent a little time on the forehead, eyes and nose

Beautiful artwork; I'd honestly love to see one of the dog-like rodent monsters referred to in Pickman's Model drawn in your style, even if it would be a bit mundane...

YOu know, he may not be a rat but he may be one of the demon swineheards--they never give a very accurate description beyond being human-like.

Still, this is a very chilling image. The lighting and reflect are top notch and the--I shudder to say the 'juiciness' is very apparent. Ugh--got a shiver looking at it again trying to think of the right word. A perfect piece of horribleness.
