dA Bestiary No 22 by Windy999 dA Bestiary No 22 by Windy999
As I'm pointing fingers left right and centre it would be remiss of me to leave the Admin out...

.... so here's playing with fire :)

Resubmission: A less pink version? (looks the same to me) - thanks to for his patience with a real dimwit

I think most admins would LOVE to have that kind of multitasking at hand, since I can sympathize with them and their positions (hey, there are a LOT of those Hate-Alls and other creatures out there, and not enough hours on one planet!)

Haha, all these are fabulous. I love octopi.
Quite a few spelling errors in this one though: it's wielding, miscreant, phenomenal, and intolerants. Not trying to be mean, I'm just a Grammar Nazi- though I (generally) try to be a nice one.

I wouldn't know, as I haven't posted to the forums here at all... still, I really love the picture. ^^

(And what kind of Grammar Nazi would I be if I didn't point out that you misspelled "wielding," "miscreant," "phenomenal," and "intolerant"? >.> )

...one blow will admonish the miscrient (miscreant)
hence they can grow to a phenominal size.. (phenominal)
...hatealls, and intollerants... (intolerant has 1 'L', but i don't know if the animal is any different.)

sorry to be picky but... (I think I fall under the Grammar Nazi category) isn't miscrient actually miscreant? or is that just a difference in spelling between where I live and where you live?

Like all of your dA Bestiary pieces, this one is excellent. I love the Hammers of Etiquette, they're especially cool.

Of course, you typo'd the word "phenomenal"... but I'm picky like that. Don't mind me.

Wow... talk about a near pointless comment. Nearly no critiquing, and a little blurb about a typo. Oh well, I suppose that's the way it goes.

Absolutely bloody amazing... I cannot say enough good regarding your enormous talent
and scalpel-sharp wit. Satire, yes, but also a bit of truth in all. Keen observations, all.

Keep up this most excellent work. I'll be watching...as will anyone with half a brain.

Very, very well done!!

Yes, much less pink now. It was visible on my screen, too. Maybe you could try setting colours and contrast on your monitor to be able to actually see these things... Much depends on it.
