Halloween Monster #1


This is a Gring of String. He is known for tangling
string, putting knots in necklaces and making
twisted spaghetti out of computer cables.
He feeds off the frustration caused when his
victims try to deal with the tangles. There
is no known protection from this monster.

carla said...

Ha! Well, I have a spell to keep him away from me! He actually looks like some kind of scary moth emerging from its cocoon...

LDahl said...

Thank you Artsparker!

Hello Unknown Love! I'm so happy you liked me darlin' monster... He's at your house? Please feel free to keep him there!! ~love

Carla, you must share this spell! My poor sister spent a half an hour untangling my necklaces for me Sunday, she made the mistake of wanting one of them. To get to it she had to unwind the one next to it that was tangled in the one...well, I'm sure you know how that all went. They were hung neatly on a peg and I had never touched them, so it must have been the Gring!

Cute and scary at the same time. Reminds me of some creature I wouldn´t want to meet in my corridor.

Excelent illo.

Patrick said...

Very nice work. Love the detail and textures. I think this fella visits me a little too often.

Bloody Grings!

Catnapping said...

I am in love with the rich golds in this. And the face is lovely...soft wispy...

I can't help but like him.

Chuang Shyue Chou said...

Hahaha, now this is truly scary in the sense that it reminds me of a giant roach! And... well, I don't like roaches!

Tony LaRocca said...

Velcro strips are the answer!

LDahl said...

I just didn't know how fun this would be! Thanks guys for the comments, I guess depending on your viewpoint this is a creepmonster or a neatmonster... no wait, he makes horrid tangles of stringiethingies!
Velcro! STATT!

More please. More monsters. Halloween is near.

ValGalArt said...

i have met this crafty fellow :) you rock pal!

LDahl said...

Hi Toni, I think I have an idea for another monster...it is from a sketch I did a long time ago. I ran into it yesterday while looking for a monster that so far has eluded me.

Hey Val! Thanks, I'm afraid we have all had our share of run-ins with this old beast!:)))
