Love the character (Earthworm Jim influence maybe?) but my favorite part about this is the fish bit lying on the slab...it feels very tangible.

Gurg buried the cleaver into the thick wood of the table and sighed, or as close as his watery vocal chords could achieve. Gliding away from the workbench, where a hunk of Skull-Eel meet lay stinking and steaming; he'd finish carving it up later. For now he needed to get out of the confined butchers he worked in, teeming with ruptured flesh and splintered bone. Of course Gurg didn't object to it, he'd seen far worse in the raids carried out by those knife-faced fish creatures. Mimicking another sigh, Gurg leaned on the window sill and took in the view. He'd seen it thousands of times, but it had never ceased to amaze him. A stunning vista of the brick wall next door, a few feet from the window. The specks of moss and grime added an interesting contrast with the dull grey cobbles. Despite this beautiful visual laid before him, Gurg was very much so distracted by the thoughts raging and toying in his... Mind? I guess it applies. So we'll go with mind. Thoughts of his home, his family. Thoughts of how long he'd continue to work in this boiling shack of meat and metal. Thoughts of irony, as he, and aquatic creature, butchered and carved the bodies of fellow ocean dwellers. Sadly, this irony was lost on him, and all he did was gurgle to himself before standing and turning back to the workbench he'd spent the past few hours slaving at. Might as well crack on with the work.

My apologies if this was slightly lack-lustre, it was hard to do such an amazing piece of art justice xD I tried to mix in some humour, so you'll have to tell me if that works. But it's good to see some work Stephen, if I'm honest I've missed your dark work.

I dig the humor! This piece does have a tinge more light-hearted still dark nature injected in it ;) I like the idea of finding an interest in such simple surface things! Great stuff as always ;)

I might try humour more often then! As long as the art matches the theme that is, but then again there is always room for dark humour, especially in your artwork, I mean... Who can forget that brain-eating camel?
