Knives and needles - 9 Contest by begemott Knives and needles - 9 Contest by begemott
This is my second (and last?) entry for "The Beasts of 9" contest. I may improve some details if I have more time until the deadline.

It is a mean, silent creature. Its front legs are 2 huge kitchen knives, and it uses them both for walking and as a weapon. In closer encounters, it uses two needles, which it can control in a smooth and elegant way, as if knitting through another creature's body.

Its body is made of several ..pots of various sizes, and a.. colander. : )

I forgot to say - one thing I particularly enjoy about this picture, is the emotionless 'face' of the creature/thing

I saw a large spider like creature and died of awesome overload. That is probably one of THE coolest things I will ever see. I am REALLY glad it doesn't exist. Your art is very thought provoking and for someone like me, who can find a fountain inspiration in the most basic of things -such as the word 'a'- , that is an extreme brain overload. Not to say I don't mind it.

Nope, photoshop. I blended a couple of textures on the image to give it this look.

I'm really curious as to where your inspiration comes from. Your artwork is amazing and some of the stuff reminds me of what goes on in my head. Keep up the great artwork ^.^

This reminds me of the creature from Shaun Tan's books, "The Lost Thing". Beautiful, great job! It reminds me of many night terrors I've had. :P

I remember seeing this a while back and I think I recall faving it... GOTTA DO IT AGAIN!!!

Anywho, I love all the mechanical details around the neck and arms. The glow of the eyes is faint and dim... like this thing is just barely alive, but alive enough to kill. Creepy!

This creature is extremely well executed and well thought-out. The style it's drawn in is also beautiful! :) Very creative, I could see this running about in the 9 Movie.

Many here put mine to shame, and this is one of them. :D Stunning!!!
