Balaur Manusa by skulpturro Balaur Manusa by skulpturro
Tired of waiting to get "back to what I once was", I am plunging back into the only world I can call my own ( you know, the world of hopelessly dead things being forced back into the realm of the living by yours truly ).

This is a manipulation created by nothing more than a pair of unwilling mushrooms and a stinky glove :)

The name is Romanian, a language I frequently butcher ( unintentionally ) to add extra cool to my atrocities ;)

I really like the way it subtly shifts into the abnormal.

Oooh I want one as my under lab bench pet. It looks as if it could survive anything. Very organic, soothing, beautifully conceived executed and deliver. Another icon of wonderment Dave

All it has survived is the crush of a blue-collared worker's fat fingers.
It is certainly accustomed to the moisture and darkness an under-bench abode can provide; your velvety prose will, without a doubt, provide much-appreciated intellectual nutrition.

Keep the "pet" talk to a minimum, such might be perceived as condescension.

This is cool because I don't think it required much photo manip, I think you just went with a good composition and the fact that the glove and the mushrooms have similar textures.

its just so seamless ( apart from the actual seams! ) and alive!Absolutely love the way the stitching gradually turns into teeth! The little finger critter is so subtle and just brilliant!

Love it my man!

Thank you kindly; I guess you have little to fear from a monster with string teeth. That is how the monster's agent is spinning it at least. I am forever appreciative kind sir!!

Or at least you might try shaking them out or spraying the insides with Anti-bacterial spray. Or just mail them to me :P

Let's hope it's more than just a breach, although I do find breaches a good way to rid myself of undesirable barnacles.
With that said, I hope to be more regular in my 'sightings here at DA.

Thanks, Phil, it does the heart good to see a familiar face here :hug:
