The Stocking Stuffer

Author Comments

Seasons Greetings, now run for your life.



The creatures are reminiscent of some of Tim Burton's creations particularly Oogey Boogey from Nightmare Before Christmas. And no I am not accusing you of taking ideas. I am merely pointing out the similarities in your work. After all they do say great minds think alike. Anyways I'm curious what the little guy is doing with that candy cane. It looks like a rat or some other creature crept in the sock and the stocking stuffer is trying to stab it to death. Or he's using it like a crowbar and opening something up with it. So pray tell what is he doing?

Yeah I dont know, I watched a lot of Burton's stuff as a kid but kind of grew apart from it. I do see the similarities though, as far as I can tell it's a coincidence.

The Candycane is being put in to the stocking, but he's also using it as a tool of navigation.


Grats on the feature lil' buddy! :D

ImpendingRiot responds:

Thanks lady!


looks like his back is a snail shell. I really like the softness of the picture and those lights are a nice touch. Mostly though I question whats in that candy cane.

ImpendingRiot responds:

Many trips to the dentist :(


Is it using the strings attached to the hooks on it's back to rappel down? This is definitely inspiring.

ImpendingRiot responds:

Yeah that's what I imagined it was doing, similar to a spider. I had a lot of spider-like inspiration for this little guy.

I like it!

Was this inspired by Tim Burton?

ImpendingRiot responds:

Not really, at least not on a conscious level
