We are the Belhin, daaahling. by CountANDRA We are the Belhin, daaahling. by CountANDRA
LINK TO SWIGGYROTTEN --> [link]

Last September I snuck a peak at a new tale I made up called "Swiggyrotten". Now its about time that I showed it off a weedly teensy bit more. :heart:

Behold, the Belhin.
If anyone forgot, the Belhin are the king and queen of toys. They rule over Swiggy Bottom, where abandoned toys from childhood are sent to live and love happily after they have been thrown away.

This is an illustration depicting a usual visit to the Belhin; a plush dahling (or "dolling") is standing before them, most likely asking a question or something or other while its rulers listen sweetly. <3


Done a while ago with ink and crayola colored pencils. :heart:

Swiggyrotten (c) Andi



PS: The Belhin are supposed to look silly yet scary for they are terribly obnoxious and childish yet could be quite disturbing. Did I achieve silly scariness or nay?

Tis beautiful yesh, I love how you used the blue colours; it looks like it's glowing. owo"

WOW. I love the contrast of light and dark here. It's simple, yet stands out and does the piece justice. :D I LOVE IT.

I find it interesting that a, ahem, "safe haven" for abandoned toys is ruled by those creeps. Very Tim Burton-esque, if you ask me. You should contact him- he might want to make this into a movie!
Love the pic, by the way. Makes you wonder where the pellets of good lie in the rulers' hearts.

The rulers look quite scary in contrast to the rather sweet toy XD But their silly faces make them funny looking and I think their design is great :3 And I love the colours you've used here and the flash of the spotlight.

wow the lighting on this picture was so strong that my hand magically clicked on the tumbnail.

I was wondering when we'd see these guys again! They definitely look childish in expression, you've done a great job making their faces stand out so much from their ominous atire and the rest of the body. So in other words you've done a fantastic job of mixing childish with creepy (i'd really hate to see these two creeping up the road though XD)
The lighting makes this picture so pretty to look at, and the fact that it's shinning on that innocent dolling kinda makes me wonder if those rulers are as childish as they look.

I know nothing 'bout Swiggyrotten yet, but it promises to be great.
Over all, what I love of this one is the lightning and the menacing aura around them. Not sure if they look silly, though. They look more like nuts.
Another amazing masterpiece, I say *goes for more of it*

I think you got spot on with what you were trying to achieve with the Belhin.

From a distance the look evil, but then you see their faces and it's like. Awwww....They're kinda derpy.
