deep below the surface of forests, in dark wormhole-like tunnels, live these fellows. they make their homes in among fibrous structures that may once have been roots of trees, but are now dead.

at night, they venture up towards the surface, and are occasionally brave enough to dart a long bony hand out of a hole in the ground to grab some decaying leaves or fungus, which they use as both bedding and food. as a result of this, they have this awful mushroomy smell, and occassionally suffer from fungus spores growing under their skin, causing tumours which then errupt into foul-smelling boils.

dead birds and snails are a delicacy, as are eggs and amphibians. they wait for these items to become rancid, then hunt for them by smell. bones and shells are then used as adornment on the long pointed hats (carved from spongey fungus) these creatures wear.

This is really creppy... But strangely nice at same time. Odd and sweet, I must say. The face of that creature has some charm. The thing I love the most is how you added all those insects :)

I love how the face looks almost wooden, itself. I love the details that frame the picture, and the color pallet you chose is perfect: just warm enough...just cold enough...and just dark enough. Great job!
