I decided to work on something that I can do quick, and that will be something of a departure from what I have been doing lately. I was looking for something icky, gross, maybe a little evil, and non-humanoid. I found this guy.
I decided to go with a fleshy color. The reddish-purple shading does a nice job of making it looked inflamed and nasty, and hopefully when I get the highlights on there (they're going to be pale yellow) it'll be that but even more.
