The King Of Rats by Deyran The King Of Rats by Deyran

"Lord of Vermin, Bringer of Nightmares,
with a Mind to See the Unseen,
showing us, through the Glint of countless fiendish Eyes,
a Glimpse of the Darkness beyond"


~ The King of Rats , Unknown

Because I felt that this needed at least the most vestigial bit of context :dummy:

...Eeeeekhem... Well, hello there, Internet, long time no see, amirite? ^^;
I'm surprisingly not dead yet, just meandering between states of busy-out-of-my-mind and generally-too-tired-to-produce-artsy-stuff. </excuses>

So, about a million and a half ages ago, it was :iconkingovrats: 's birthday. But before I had a chance to contribute to this hallowed occasion, a miraculous black hole sucked me in and only spat me out recently.

I had an idea however, and wanted to pay my respects to one of the greatest lovecraftian/macabre artists out there. So:

:party: Happy Horribly Belated But Hopefully Nonetheless Awesome Birthday, Michael!! :party:


The above is a little tribute to KingOvRats , featuring some of the attributes most frequently associated with his work: Darkness, bones, metal and rats, of course. The whole thing was great fun to work on, though it didn't come out quite like I wanted. The crown is based on the logo of one of his favourite bands, Watain :headbang: , while the King's pendant is based on an actual gadget by KingOvRats , www.deviantart.com/art/Watain-…

Brilliant! It's just got the right amount of highlights to show all the rats and the creepiness, but just the right amount of dark too. I like how you did the fur

Thanks! :D
I'm glad these 12 months without art didn't result in me entirely forgetting, how to draw xD
