This was a piece I did for fun for a local art show (The Cat Art Show) hosted by Joanna Eberts. It was a great a show with a lot of fun illustrations of cats and other feline subject matter. Anyways, here's my submission, which is based of this russian urban myth where scientist took a dog head that was severed and put on life support, in an attempt to transplant the head into a large robot body. It's some really wierd stuff, complete with a patent and pictures that look quite real. Who knows if this was a legitimate experiment or an elaborate hoax.
Link's here for pics of said experiment: http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?194778-Dog-head-Soviet-Union-s-bioroid-soldier
Also, my painting...

For this character/creature, It was rather a random idea that I developed from start to finish. As I worked on this, It was fun to sort of throw things around and build on it. It could be thought of some otherworldly creature that is skilled at seeking out it's victims, floating between dimensions and not limited by anything that could obstruct it's path. I'm going to work on more ways to create things that appear unconventional/impractical but believable/functional. maybe draw some characters that wear all kinds of clothes the wrong way, haha. This was fun and i'm happy with how it turned out. :)
