This is a spider chicken. I've considered sharing it here before, but figured it didn't really fit into EGS. Being behind on sleep and wanting to devote more time to working on upcoming story comics so they'll be on time and stuff, however, I have bravely figured out an excuse to put it here!
In the history of EGS, there have been many, many, MANY freaky monsters. Four. The Goo, Vlad, Bloodgrem, and whatever the crap was on that one dude's head. While EGS is generally too light-hearted to allow for REALLY freaky monsters with horrific abilities, my sketchbooks are full of monsters like this one. I think it would be difficult to pull off a horror comic in the EGS art style, but I like to think I can come up with some pretty freaky stuff.
If this spider chicken doesn't seem all that freaky to you, consider this fun fact: the waddle is full of tiny spider chicken eggs. Seriously, it was drawn with that intent. That's why the circles are there.
I also drew a spider octopus that shoots webbing (for eating sharks) and a skunk elephant that shoots musk from it's trunk. I'm guessing the latter lacks a sense of smell.
