Maggotmen

Hadn't painted anything for the better part of a year, but I couldn't resist and had to make time for myself to paint these once they arrived. These are totally awesome, I did my best to do them justice.

They look brilliant!

But painting them pink has made them look even more suspect  :paranoid:

Sweet! The skin tone is great, like bled-out meat - I can almost smell them.  :smile:

Thanks! I actually thought he was eating chunks of a heart or something so I just painted them as bloody. And I actually was totally oblivious to the ... other resemblance... until Ben said something and I looked back at the comments on Andy's sculpt posts. It had occurred to me that the "hood" of the female maggotperson was slightly suggestive... so either it's subtle or I am not Frothers material.  :P

Here's some better pics:

There's a whole lot of anatomical suggestion going on. But that one's definitely eating both a weird internal organ of some sort and a lump of plop.

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial
Who, squating upon the ground
Held his heart in his heart
And ate of it
Is it good, friend? I asked
It is bitter bitter, he answered
But I like it
Because it is bitter
And because it is my heart

Nice find! Very fitting poem. It works really well with the backstory of them being transformed into this state by Ner'Gabba.

I had actually forgotten the backstory but it makes the sculpts even more impressive (the anatomical suggestions make a lot of sense). It's in this update for anyone else who forgot:
