dA Bestiary No 6 by Windy999 dA Bestiary No 6 by Windy999
Wow - this was a hard one to do!

I got sketcher's block in the middle of it!

I'm happy with the result though - please let none of you turn out to be Jekyllnhydes! :O :D

(the current list in the bestiary is here[link])

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-01-18
Every now and again, it pays to take a look in the mirror and laugh at yourself. The da Bestiary by *Windy999 is how we as an online society can do just that. dA Bestiary No 6 is one in a series of caricatures of ourselves. We'll be featuring one of them a day for the first sixteen in the series. ( Featured by dygel )

Ha! This reminds me of a friend I have! Well, I think she's a friend... for the moment at least!

Eeek! That's quite scary actually... the puppet reminds me of a tweeny XD But it has the cute factory I guess.
I like the ominous cloudy sky overshadowing the puppet master dude.

I think I can say I've never actually met one of these...

... touch wood.

I love your bestiary! i seem to fit in quite a few of these groups :blush:

How many fingers does the "hyde" have, i only see three...

They do seem to come up with the most interesting, horrible things that will happen to you if you dont do what they say :fear:

There's loads at my school. They scare the hell out of me...

Cool. Fortunately, I haven't met any of these yet. *looks around warily*

Since I don't yet know how you feel about having your grammar picked apart, I'll limit myself to one correction: the difference between "that" and "which." Basically, a clause that begins with "which" is generally set apart by a comma, while one that begins with "that" is not. So, the first sentence should either be

"Beware this creature, which lurks throughout the dAsphere."

or

"Beware this creature that lurks throughout the dAsphere."

If you want corrections on other niggling things, let me know. And I'm sorry if I'm coming off as overly negative... It's just that I really do think these bestiary entries are awesome, and I want to help you get them as polished as possible. ^^;

Oh, and if I haven't said so already, the fake Latin names are great. Makes me think of the old Coyote and Roadrunner cartoons. :D

I'm fine with the grammar-spotters - I'm slowly going through and correcting them

Thanks a lot
