My Halloween art for this year!
I'm never on time for it, I really should do it like a month in advance lol... But! Its done so here it is~

Some of you may recognize the monster as the zooKeeper, though this particular one is special. This one is The First, the mother, so old that her skin has been stained black by blood and flith until it took on the feel of tar and oil. Long story short, she's pretty ancient and pretty gross. The man on her back is one of the very few that can 1) live to say she exists after seeing her and 2) he is the only one that can actually touch her, let alone ride her. His name is Karanlık, he's something akin to a ghost/wraith/spooky type - its complicated.

But that's enough blahblah out of me. Happy Halloween! belated
