Breathe your tar or drool it. by Crisosphinx Breathe your tar or drool it. by Crisosphinx
Considering that I forgot to add the description...

This is my contest piece for "The Make Ugly" contest. It's a creature, formed by habit and is tarred, from the inside out, 'til it couldn't breathe anymore. This cancer will kill and its scares are worse than you would ever know.

This is my spin on smoking. You smoke, you'll be uglier than this monster. Nothing against smokers, just had bad experiences from myself, as I smoked and hurt people. :)

I did livestream this at livestream.com/criso.

------------
EDIT:

Wow. ._. Thank you for all of the favorites and comments! I wasn't expecting that at all. ^_^

Those burning things in the background are up for interpretation. ;)
I actually made a few shaped like stereotypical factories, the blur just masks them out.

Thank you. ;)I wish I had gotten a bit more subsurface shading on it, but that's a personal choice (and I'm not very good at that, hehe).

Wonderful work. I think you captured the "feel" of smoking quite accurately. I'm now quit for several years, but I've seen a lot of pain and suffering from smoking. Don't get me started :iconsmile--plz:

Thank you. :) I heard from a lot of people that smoking made their skin/ spine/ back feel like it was on fire, especially the feeling of the addiction after going "cold-turkey".

The smoke burnt my eyes, so the fire would've been a representation of that... I'm glad you're off of it. :)

Never would've thought you got the inspiration from smoking. But now that I think about it, it fits so well. You did an amazing job on the creature.

Thank you so much. I wouldn't wish the dread of smoking on my worst enemy. But I have no disrespect for those who already do it, unless they are hurting others. :)

Impressive work, dude! I love the design and the textures are really nice.
Also that blur makes it even nicer, you can focus on the monster's head even more easily ^^.
Good luck with the contest :D.
