Inspired by a line from [link]

Originally the background was white, but since FAKEALERT wasn't letting me use anything ever, I couldn't get the scanner up. So I pouted and bawwwed for a few hours, and then I added more stripes on the idol, painted the background with India ink, and all around fiddled for some time.
Very stylized; lots of symbolism in this one. Originally the idol had a mask with a big smile over it, but I changed it several times and ended with what you see up there.
I like it when leg anatomy makes no sense whatsoever.
I've been shovin' broken glass into people's mouths since I read Nightmares and Fairy Tales. It's a disease.
Fairly happy with this one c:

My face is blocky and manly.
And I have a beard.
Mousy-Vegetable's avatar
;A; I want your face. I need testosterone to grow a beard, which I don't start for a few more months. I WANT TO SHAVE MY FACE
Star-Seal's avatar
And of course you want my face. Everyone wants my face.
*flaunts face*

Everyone wants MY LEGS. I love my manly legs. They have LEG HAIR (with the exception of random places that just won't grow hair at all)!
Star-Seal's avatar
Lol. People want my hair, for the most part... but I've always liked my hands.
And my teeth. But I'd be happy with anyone's teeth.
Teeth are great.

Your scary demon deer are win.
Star-Seal's avatar
Oh, I didn't even talk about deer.
About six years ago, I made up this race of carnivorous deer-like animals called 'kildeer'. Creative, I know.
About five years ago, a deer caused the graphic death of my dog.

Deer have never really been my picture of gentle tranquility, oh ho ho ho.

Sorry about your dog. :(

Your kildeer are pretty flipping sweet. Isn't it funny how people think cute furry animals like them are cuddly and sometimes even helpless? It makes me giggle every time I see someone's gerbils cannibalize each other or, well, you know.
Star-Seal's avatar
Hehehehe. Yes.
I've always been more likely to play with Godzilla toys over pretty ponies, but what most people can't seem to fathom is that I'd still play with both. I have nothing against cutesie, but it needs a bit of creepy to make the cute really count, without just rotting your teeth.
