The Most Useless Creature by hwango The Most Useless Creature by hwango
Created for COW #43, The Most Useless Creature.

"My lord, Spawning Vats A through F report success. Each one has spawned a new race of horrors for your dread army. The creatures in Vat C actually tore apart the demon who opened it!"

"Excellent! Soon, my armies shall - wait, did you say Vats A through F? Don't we have a vat G?"

"Er, yes. But there seems to have been a problem with that one. Best not to worry about it. Now, Vat B - there's a winner! The things that came out of it are coated in a sticky acidic goo and have about a dozen tentacles tipped with highly poisonous stingers!"

"What came out of Vat G?"

"Vat F was pretty good too. Armor plating, breathes fire, razor sharp claws - great for your army. Yep, great for the army."

"What came out of Vat G?"

"Really, my lord, best not to -"

"WHAT CAME OUT OF VAT G?!"

"...these, my lord."

Now THIS is what deviantART is all about.
1.) It's a great piece of art
2.) It's more than something that you just go "ooh" at and :+fav: at will
3.) I appreciate it more after reading the description.

This is very, very good! I'm going to :+fav: this and browse the rest of your gallery. I love the alien's expression (the evil one) and hilarious "story" to accompany it!

Thanks, glad you enjoyed both picture and the accompanying 'story.' It's definitely one of my more more 'finished' pieces, in that it's not just a critter sitting in some thrown-together background.

Maybe if it could focus its attention on anything but the glowy thing in its head. =) As to snacks, for them to be truly useless I guess they'd also have to taste lousy.
