Cabinet Creature by Shii-chan148 Cabinet Creature by Shii-chan148
Have you ever swung open the doors of your kitchen cabinets or peered in that drawer you stuff all those menial utensils in and found that something was missing? A misplaced fork or two? A lost corkscrew? Not that big of deal, right? Well, most who find that their kitchen tools and appliances have gone missing simply brush it off as a simple misplacement, but they're simply unaware that their home has been invaded.
“By what?” you may be asking. I'll tell you.
There’s no real name for what has come into your home, but I, personally, call it the “Cabinet Creature”.
The Cabinet Creature is a beast that lurks in the dark of night, hiding its twisted body in the lower cabinets of your kitchen storage, usually behind the old boxes of outdated food you keep forgetting to throw out, coming out when it is sure everyone is asleep. Yet, just as it doesn't check if you’re actually asleep, it's highly recommended that you don’t go into your kitchen to check the strange purring growl and the clinking of metal being rustled in a drawer. The Cabinet Creature is just snatching the small things that no one really misses and tying them onto the cords that it wears on its back like a big charm bracelet, but it doesn't take too kindly to being interrupted…

It looks like something in a Stephen King film, anyways I like both it and the story.

That would explain why I've lost so much stuff and why I hear noises during the night actually... 0_o"

Next time I lose a pen I'm blaming this bastard >:-[

No but seriously, awesome design, friend :)
The concept is even better - seems very medieval.

I like it :nod:

The concept is awesome, and I really like the depth of the shadows and the creases in the clothes. Really dark image, love it! The thought of this thing having a hammer or a screwdriver though...

Awesome monster idea! I love how you put a background story for it. You wrote it well. Great job on the folds and the wood texture. Keep it up!
