A monster I drew for a thing.
True Monster (30 Day Monster Girl (Burlesque) Challenge Day 11)
Back in the saddle with the monster girl burlesque. Day 11 is “true monster” which nobody seems to know how to interpret. The more open things are, the more afraid and vulnerable I feel, naked and cold, whimpering to myself and slowly rocking back and forth. So, I guess eyeballs and claws and horns. This monster lady will eat your soul, but only if she can see you.

You’re the best, do you know that? THE BEST.
Cheri Stone and “Not Cheri” (30 Characters Challenge #14 and #15)
So, yesterday you were introduced to Brian Stone, the man who can make his tattoos come to life, and Sam Triggs, his tattoo artist sidekick.
Cheri was married to Brian for a year before she died from a stomach flu. Never was a couple more in love. She was a Ladies’ Golden Gloves queen, nearly undefeated in her semi-pro career. She loved baking, shoes, and burning things down. She worked in demolitions, and loved her job. She was like a stale cinnamon roll, tough but sweet.
When Brian gained his powers, and asked Sam to tattoo Cheri on his back so he could bring her back to life, Sam took a few… liberties. For one, he’s not very good at drawing people, and especially not good at drawing specific people. He also erroneously thought Brian might like his wife to be a bit thinner (Sam’s own hangups getting in the way). And while Brian is a large man, his back wasn’t big enough to render Cheri in a realistic size.
What resulted was a monster, definitely Not Cheri. She is powered by the same magic that gives Brian his powers, and she has a mouth full of jagged teeth, spooky eyes, and insatiable bloodlust. Not Cheri was a problem the instant Brian peeled her off him. Her boxing gloves are part of her arms, and pack a mean punch. Not Cheri has left a trail of victims as she mindlessly runs around destroying things. When she’s injured, she bleeds ink.
There is debate as to whether Not Cheri counts as Brian’s daughter, as she was born from his body. This doesn’t help Brian’s guilt as he tries to track down the monster he set loose.
Geez, I really need to do something with these characters.
