The Shimnavore by AlanPerry The Shimnavore by AlanPerry
Can't completely remember the story behind this, something to do with a monster to scare the kids with that has eyes in the back of it's head so it could always see what you were doing behind it's back (just like your mum used to say) A couple of my mates, Gary and John, came up with the idea and John did a pencil sketch, it looked so good I said I'd love to have a go at painting it. This is how it turned out, it was great fun colouring somebody elses work, we used to do a amateur comic together years ago when we were at college, I'd inked some of John's pencils before, but we'd never done a painting before. His website's here [link] and you can find the original sketch on my blog [link]

The Shimnavore by *starfox999. "There's something horrifically original about this character. The artist has done wonders with the anatomy of this fictional creature that is supposed to scare little children at night and has eyes on its back. It gives me the creeps to look at its bizarre appearance. I love how sharp the eyes are in comparison to the rest of the picture that somehow blurs into the darkness."

Creepy... It's always creepy when a monster has eyes on the back of its head. But in a funny way, I wonder since its back there, does it bump into things in the dark walking forward? Awesome colors, cool creature.

You know, I was reading something about where video games need more original characters in villains. This character looks like something out of Oddworld in terms of originality. Definitely original. That is for sure. Congrats on the DD, and keep up the amazing work.
