Tatterfoal Tatterfiend by Viergacht Tatterfoal Tatterfiend by Viergacht
The tatterfoal or tatterfiend, a shapeshifting critter in a book I'm writing (also the romantic lead).

I'd been having a lot of trouble properly visualizing it, but then today I was half asleep and running a fever and this came to me. It's fairly basic monstery design, but I like it.

Skull reference from rgstock777, some figure reference from Morf-stock.

It slightly reminds me of the movie Feast, only because of the skull. It's very cool and very creepy.

Ah, that explains the alias you use on certain sites. Nice to be able to put a "face" to it, so to speak.

Yep, although I need to update the info. Tatterfiends and tatterfoals are two different critters now, they just look similar.

I'm not taking commissions at the moment because I've got a cracked clavicle and some torn muscles in my arm & shoulder that are taking their sweet time to heal - my drawing arm, of course. Keep an eye on the journal, I'll post when I'm fit to work again :)

No problem, rest and heal. I know what it's like to get injured like that. And for the record I'd love to see that vampire anatomy essay. I think it'd be cool.

... Romantic lead?
I suppose that would work if he were .. err.. a shapeshifter, as he is .w.
You create the most vile and yet awesome creatures/characters! Is this for the same book with the librarian? 8D It looks completely amazing, and the book seems to be more and more interesting!

Nope, completely different book.

He normally looks a bit more human :)

Heh, I'd guess that'd be so. Not many gals would be romanticized from such a ... handsome fella
