The Cobweb King by ECTmonster The Cobweb King by ECTmonster
My third entry in this contest. This being is inspired by my childhood revulsion of the feeling of cobwebs, and that spine-chilling tickle that happens when a spider crawls on you. I imagined that even slightly brushing up against this creature would give you that terrible feeling. I've always been fascinated by the old folktale boogeymen, and imagined this fellow might be one of them, lurking wherever cobwebs are found.

I have to say, it takes A LOT to scare me, and pictures don't usually do much. But this indeed gave me the creeps. Especially those tiny little eyes. Awesome job!

I think this piece worked perfectly it really conveys that tickly feeling.

I really love this beast! Just the simplicity draws the eye, and the shape is great!

I'm gonna be perfectly honest. This thing actually looks relatively cuddly to me.

Then you will make easy prey! But yeah, I'd cuddle him too. :3

Oh, what's he gonna do? Lightly brush against me?

But yeah, I tend to find a lot of things less scary than they should be.

Liquefy your innards and slurp 'em out, leaving your body a mere husk. Maybe you're desensitized, maybe you're crazy, but I guarantee you if you came across such a nightmarish creature directly you'd void your bowels. Obviously, he can do much more than "lightly brush against you." Write him off due to a fluffy appearance, but that's superficial. I just don't think you're that hardcore.

Ah, so that's what he'd do.

Well. F**k, keep him far away from me, in that case! D: I'm not anywhere NEAR hardcore, in any aspect!

Anyhow, it's still an awesome monster, but, er..., you can keep him, I insist. :scared: *curls up next to the shadowy thing that watches me while I'm asleep*
