The Marvelous Mr. Rot by CalamityChemist The Marvelous Mr. Rot by CalamityChemist
I've been wanting to draw this guy for far too long now. c: So today was the lucky day that I had some time to!

This handsome fellow is Crooked Orcus Rot--the adorable mayor of Strangetown, and one of my favorite OCs ever. His story is fascinating, terribly sad, and definitely worth checking out! I had a fantastic time drawing him. He's got such a fun face and great proportions to work with.

HNNNNNGH I love you, Crooked. :heart:

Hope you like it! <3

Crooked Rot belongs to :iconschizofreek:
Go visit her gallery immediately for lovely images of him and bits of his story--I did not do him a lick of justice!

Didn't do justice? This is absolutely amazing. I just love how you do hair and the textures are such a great touch. Helps give it some feel as well as compliments the dark atmosphere. What's even more awesome tho is that the colors all work together. That dash of red in the center, aw yeah... Excellent work! 8D

It was a terrible pun, actually. I know, I'm a terrible person. I shouldn't be allowed to use puns. In fact, I didn't even get that right. Is that even a pun??!

It's not STRICTLY speaking a 'pun', but it certainly was wordplay!

Okay I gotta admit the zombie looking guy holding out hearts has officially gotten me intrigued. I shall check this character out as soon as I am finally caught up with Hotel Haven!

So...in about 6 months. Stupid computer with all its lovely shiny distractions.

He intrigued me instantly--even without the assistance of hearts. He's a rad character.

...I, too, am trying to keep up with Haven. And failing for similar reasons. 8C

I say blame the fact your life is so amazingly rad that everytime you try to calm down for some good wholesome DA goodness some new adventure pops up and you gotta save the world from *another* evil wizard.

Freakin' evil wizards.
