thanks! and i know, right?! i always wondered that after i first read and saw the picture. how could that be mistaken for a dog, let alone something you'd want to pet!

The scary story books were the best though. Though even to this day I still cant quite figure how the artist did those images.

This is amazing. I remember reading those books as a child, and this was one that always just "stuck out" to me. I love the detail you included - the straggly hair, the pores/sores. The color use is excellent, very vivid and, well, disgusting (in the best way possible)! For a minute I had to do a double take on the face, just because I didn't see the nose the first time around. But now that I've been able to really study it, it looks just like a "morbid" rat. Very impressive!!!

This amazing! The fact that you managed to get wire-like hair emerging from the sculpy really works well. Is it real hair, or very thin wire? (It just curls perfectly!)

:iconkezeff:
kezeff Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
thanks! and it's really thin wire, since this piece i've discovered that most fishing line will go through the oven. so i use that as well sometimes too. thanks again!
