Headless Queen

When her father, The King, uncovered her romantic affair with a darksider, Princess Arantula was sentenced to death by decapitation. Afterwards, overcome with regret for what he has done to his own daughter, The King ordered her body to be resurrected by way of the latest transplant sciences. Years later, it is said that the Princess still cannot settle on the one head and is rumoured to stalk the forest at night with her axe-men, capturing and decapitating any fairie folk not quick enough to turn invisible.

Laser Ghoul

Laser Ghoul always gives you his backstory before he kills you... It's kinda his thing.

Aagraak, The Human Collector



When my husband and I were first going out, we passed by the window of a Games Workshop one day. He told me he used to play War Hammer 40,000 when he was younger and that his chosen race/species or whatever you call it was the Eldar (that's "space elves" to you and me).
I'd never played War Hammer, but I thought it would be funny to see if he could guess what race I always hypothetically figured I'd play with if I did. Just to see how well he knew me at this early stage in our relationshi- "Orcs," he said. Without me even finishing the sentence. Guess he knew me pretty well after all!

Ocean Life

As a child, I was fascinated by a big book called Oceans & Islands, especially the drawings of the weird and wonderful sea life. I've sill got the book and dusted it off the other day to make reference sketches for this piece. I think there's also some of Dead Space and The Thing in there too though. There's definitely something extra-terrestrial going on, at least.
