This fellow, who we shall call Erastus, plagued my dreams when I was in my mid to late teens for about a fortnight, where he terrified me constantly, and then finally disappeared and never came back. This is how he always looked - the straw-like hair, the undead, greenish skin and purple pinstripe suit and hat. He also had an enormous, jagged knife, but I left that out.

I thought I'd revive him, in the spirit of sharing more of my grotesque dreams in art. :B

This is terrifying. No wonder you had nightmares. Still... love the perspective and downright creepiness.

He kinda looks like the kid Willy Wonka and the Mad Hatter never had. It explains why he looks so crazy.

His expression is amazing and so fiendishly evil.
And to top it off, that necktie adds some serious hawtness to it all. ;D Very awesome job~

'can I steal his image for my book? PEEEASE?'

1. Steal? How about /no/.
2. Learn to fucking spell.
3. Stop being an immature little brat.
4. Take dismissal without turning into a raging little brat. She was rude (and I use 'rude' loosely, because her comments were justified) because you were rude.
5. Make your own characters and don't just steal other people's ideas.

Then maybe we'll talk, except...probably not. : D G'day.

Get over your sense of entitlement, kiddo. You don't have a right to use SOMEONE ELSE'S characters whenever you want, or steal their designs, and it doesn't matter what the person is using it for. It DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU.

Create your OWN characters.

DOOM: Stealers of teh "concepts"

IEatDeadBodys waited. The lights above her blinked and sparked out of the air. There were cool arts in the DeviantArt. She didn't see them, but had expected them now for years. Her warnings to Madcarrot were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
IEatDeadBodys was a Author for fourteen years. When she was young she watched the DeviantArts and she said to dad "I want to take those characters daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE PWND BY LOGICAL PEOPLE"
There was a time when she believed him. Then as she got oldered she stopped. But now in the comments section of the image "Erastus" she knew there were logical people.
"This is Madcarrot" the radio crackered. "You cannot take my character!"
So IEatDeadBodys gotted her retarded comebacks and yelled bitch at the wall.
"LULZ" said the logical people
"I will try to reason with this girl" said the logical person and they left a comment. IEatDeadBodys ignored them and tried to insult them. But then the threat of harassment was called, and the logical people laughed so hard they were not able to move
"No! Bitch, I am going to use this character concept and alter it!!1" she shouted
The radio said "No, IEatDeadBodys, you cannot have my character"
And then IEatDeadBodys was an epic lolcow

Wait, so because you asked to use someone else's property, you feel that you're ENTITLED to it even if they deny you? Okay, let me see if I got this right. So if I ask to borrow your computer, you say no, I can still take it because I asked politely?

Your profile says you're 20. Your thought process is reminiscent of that of someone HALF your age. Grow the fuck up and learn to have your own, unique ideas and let people have their private, intellectual property.

Actually I wouldent be stealing anything, I am going to use the CONCEPT of the character, not the character itself. I never said I was Entitled, its not my fault you acted like a total prick. Sorry I just dont like snooty stuck up artits. And part of the process of a writer is the fact that they draw in from around them. I am an author, it's what I do. While your little "Story" is going to stay on DA, mine will be published and distrubuted around the world. You could of used that kind of exposure, but throwing the opertunity away was your choice.

You asked to use someone's image. The author said no, and you called her a bitch because she wanted to retain her intellectual property as her own. Do you not know how stupid that is? Of course, you don't, else you wouldn't have been such an utter, selfish cunt.

It's one thing to take inspiration, but that's clearly not what your intention was, else you wouldn't have requested permission to use the character's image for the book.

Oh, and good job replying to me instead of the author.
