IF - Monster

My monster's name is Willy Nilly. He's a friendly magical creature that didn't choose to be different but he is.

Thanks for understanding my repressed Yeti trauma. After 5 pints of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and a viewing of 'What A Girl Wants' I'm once again at peace with my hairy past. That being said, what the frick is this!? Oh the horror, the horror! Do they raise these in Canada? Thank the Gods Willy is friendly, otherwise I'd have to get Dick Cheney on the phone to tell him we're going hunting.

Awesome illo sir. VERY original & tres humorous.

There's something about Willy Nilly that reminds of Peter Lorre.

Oh well, too many monsters in one day is affecting my mind.

I really like the colors and all.
So, what's his magic???

rrramone, Thank you very much.

Kaladda, Thank you Willy is in need of a friend. Most people are scared by his.. well scared by everything.

Trevor, Call of the Cheney posy, It's for your own good man.

Lori, I think it's Willy Nilly's eyes that are Peter Lorre-ish. All that I can say is that it just happened. My first concept for Willy was more of an animal frankenstein with stitches and the bulging eyes were actually zombie inspired. Later I felt that Willy was born a monster rather than made into one, so I removed the stitches, but the eyes were still cool. Willy's magic is what made him into Willy Nilly. His magic kicks in at random, but is motivated by whatever Willy is doing or feeling at the time. Willy can also sort of fly (with one yellow bird wing in the back.)

Everyone, I thank you so much.
