ROTG - Little Jack - feeding time by merrypaws ROTG - Little Jack - feeding time by merrypaws
Bit of a darker turn to my Lil' Jack series. This was actually inspired by a short passage from a Lovecraft short story:

"There was one thing called 'The Lesson' -- Heaven pity me, that I ever saw it! Listen -- can you fancy a squatting circle of nameless dog-like things in a churchyard teaching a small child how to feed like themselves?"
- Pickman's Model


This gives me as the artist bit of mixed feelings. It clearly more... gruesome than the rest of my Lil' Jack drawings. There's something about a huge predator teaching a human child to eat raw meat that disturbs most people on a conceptual level. Still, I feel it gives some insight to Jack's life with Bunny. Bunny may have gone from flowers and painted eggs into a creature of nightmares, but he's still making sure his kit doesn't go hungry.

Sorry, none yet. I have some little bits noted down, in case I get the inspiration to write a full piece, but that's it.
