Tiny legs for that huge upper body. Still cool, though.

That was the point, he also has a tiny head and huge hands.

Wow, the tiny head. If he tries to facepalm, he'll probably end up crushing his skull or something.

Just add a burning cross in the background and it's exactly what I see when listening to this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqjROS…

Very nice, I like the slight over exaggeration of the characters size and pose. If you don't mind me asking, how did you do the blood splat over his hand?
Reply
:icongrandpalove:
GrandpaLove Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's actually a pretty simple technique. The blood looks to be just a flat, red shape on a seperate layer, with the layer's mode set to "multiply". Doing that basically makes the layer transparent, without making the details of the layer below it faded or harder to see.
