Rats.

Refined sketch of a rat-king, though I think I'll be taking the piece in a whole other direction, here's where I started:




I just don't think this sketch is very clear- it mostly looks like a pile of rats, and their interlocked tails aren't obvious at all. (Learn more about rat-kings at Wikipedia, but be warned, a nasty mummified rat-king corpse is involved.) I think I also want something with a little more narrative, as well.

This is probably what the inside walls of our old apartment looked like...

What's this for by the way?

I'd rather read about the fictional character The Rat King

Ray- haha, nah, our apartment would've had an adorable mouse-king at worst- the tiniest horrifying thing you'd ever see. I'm doing it to take a shot at that open spot in Fantagraphic's second beast book- not getting my hopes up, but it's worth the fun of trying... right?

Mike, if you're talking about the TMNT character, then... well... yes. Actually, it would've been really awesome if The Rat King WAS a rat king.
