What a bloody mess. by hankleshanks What a bloody mess. by hankleshanks
Alternate title: Incandescent Vampire Moobs

Aside from the arm, I guess I'm pretty proud of it. Always had trouble with values, but I think I did better this time.

No blood: [link]
I actually prefer it without the blood but that was part of the original concept. ):

So anyway, yeah. Vampires. Say what you will. ):
In this case they're just mindless golems that happen to keep their batteries going by drinking the blood from the torn-open throats of their enemies. And when they do that, the old blood leaks out via nose, eyes, ears, etc. to make room for the new, otherwise they'd swell up like balloons and explode. 8D
It seems horribly inefficient but tears of blooood


Before I go cover my face and hyperventilate in a corner somewhere, I'd just really like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH because HOLYHOLYHOLYSMOKES

What a bloody mess. by ~hankleshanks is a kind of tragic, delicious artwork with an atractive feeling that makes you stare at it. The mix of beauty and evil is simply perfect on it. Without doubt a lovely artwork. ( Suggested by neurotype and Featured by Atramina )

this is so lovely, sir/madam.

I really do have a difficult time liking pieces, but I do find this one quite entrancing.

the blood is probably my favorite part, as much as I adore hair, as it's not ketchupy in any way, nor is it stained.

i really do like how 'in the moment' this feels, and i applaud you on your subtle use of highlights.

If you are a Serial Killer or " have a drive to murder unprovoked" , send me a email for more details about my book and how you can become apart of this experince.

I am writing a book but this is really for one of my college classes. I am going to publish it as non-fictional. Whatever information and stories you tell me are confidential. To increase your security send me responses from fake email address and change names dates times and states/cities. I have a few questions to ask you.

You are important to this book and deserve to share your experince with the world.

I literally did not notice the arm until you mentioned it. You just need to make the body look as though its rotated further round, I think. The arm and face are in the right place for each other... and Moobs?! Holy cow you must be kidding. In the words of Toby Turner hot hot hot hot hot
