I will, they're fuckin' hilarious. I about died when I first saw them with the captions, which makes them 10x funnier, but even uncaptioned they're great and it gives people here a chance to come up with their own versions.
The expressions of the monsters vs the humans is just priceless. Nobody is scared of them, they're so commonplace. It's like "Oh, yet ANOTHER of these goddamn things, just go away already."
I always get two different names when searching, Don (or sometimes John) Kenn and some other dude who's name escapes me now. Need a more experienced fan in here to clear things up.
Any idea why it's sometimes Don and other times John? Did he change his name or is it a middle name? Or stupid people just fucking up?
Well, I guess finding a fan of his is the only way to know for sure.
Sometimes people change up their names/pseudonyms for no apparent reason. Maybe it's as simple as that.
Voice actors do it all the time, it drives me bonkers.
Neat thread OP. Never heard of this guy, so thanks a ton for broadening my horizons.
I'm aware of that, I'm just curious as to his "official" name or title because his work is awesome. I'd totally buy a book like this, I think there's one out there, I'm just too lazy to check right now while posting pics.
I'm not OP, BTW, just >>15165273 who took over after he apparently left.
Okay, Mortensen, I think that was the other name I couldn't remember.
not sure if same artist, laughed all the same
Fuck, >>15165407 was a duplicate. I'm just posting whatever the thread doesn't stop me from posting. Maybe some of mine will be bigger, at least.
What if these guys are like the opposite of the Elder Gods and they don't exactly drive people insane, they just annoy the hell out of them?
But occasionally they legitimately try to harm people, or at least pretend, just to teach them their place. Or if they get hungry enough.
I forget the name of this author too. Do any of you know the name? Without the captions.
Okay, I'm an oldfag who's not familiar with it.
I have more of these than I remember. But that's good.
But MOST of them don't seem to want to hurt or even scare people. They're just kinda dicks, like annoying neighbors or roommates.
No, I salvaged these from an archived thread. I would have had better ones, but since chanarchive unfortunately died (I'm still hoping for its revival) and the other archives suck at saving images, I recovered most of them with TinEye and Google Reverse Image Search. If anyone has better versions or anything I and OP are missing, by all means, post them!
You can't even ride the damn bus without them hassling you. Screw you, monster, I'm going on vacation! And don't even think about getting a seat next to me.
Thanks for the link! I think I'm going to stop after I'm done with what I already have saved, but that's useful. Someone else can take over when I'm done. I'll probably post a few of the captioned ones, then come back later to finish them. In the meantime, these blank ones can be put to good use.
>still tho my trust is in cold hard american steel lol
No matter what nationality your steel, I'm sure these giant dicks would just devour them for breakfast and laugh at you even harder. They are master trolls.
And I found this animated version a few days ago, enjoy it.
Nah man, you're just not getting it. Look at the expressions on the faces of these people. They're so used to this it doesn't even phase them anymore. It's like they're stuck in some sort of living hell, but they no longer care except to tell the more annoying ones to fuck off. You can't defeat them. You can't even hurt them. They just torment you until you learn to tolerate/ignore it or ragequit.
Now it's time for the captions, bitches. Feel free to make some new ones.
Go create your own Giger thread then, tard. I happen to like that too, but there's no reason for you to take over this thread.
Why do people like you have to complain so much? Just save the blank ones. Or go here. >>15165525
>these are just not funny
Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
>and even if they were they would not belong here
Just where do you think you are? This is /x/, of course they belong here.
Uh-huh. Good thing for us you don't get to dictate what does and does not get posted on /x/. If this is "/b/ tier", clearly you haven't seen the shit clogging up the board here lately. Save your textless pics and leave us to enjoy the captioned ones.
not sure if it /really/ counts, but here are some of my monsters
only thing intentionally spoop-related
I suppose these werent the kinds of monsters you were looking for, so im done for now.
see y'all later
Thanks for keepin' the thread up. I'll add some captions I thought of.
"No, Fuck off Terry I have to find a job!"
"No, Jesus Christ guys If i don't find a job my mom will kick me out of the house!"
"YOU WANT JOB? HERE IS JOB."
"That's a spider dickass."
"Actually yeah I did find a job, thanks for asking"
Haha, real funny, I might as well just sleep in here tonight
Jesus Christ guys i need to be fucking clean for work tomorrow!
I hate my fucking job.
Yes, I'm moving away, I am sick and fucking tired of this spooky-bullshit town.
Not to get all tumblr or 2deep4me but, guys, I think this is what anxiety is when its put into art. Most of the time the people are acting like its normal and most of the time they're not even looking at the monsters but they're still there and they seem to know. Wow, I feel transformed by this realization.
I noticed this is similar to one above, but I had already made it, so screw it.
IMHO the captions totally fuck up those pictures, snotnose graffiti by the lazy on art
Kenn thinks they're funny. You're entitled to your opinion, but it's not on par with that of the art's creator.
Of course, the fact that you were insulting and deliberately posted an off-topic pic suggests it's less an opinion than a weak justification to shitpost.
No art has been harmed in the creation of this thread. The original drawings continue to exist in a completely unaltered state. And the world has just a tiny bit more humor in it than there was yesterday. I can't see that as a bad thing.
>bugs are basically tiny skeletons with organs inside
Don't have much, but here. A wendigo for you.
Enjoy a random monster I drew the other night during a drunken stupor
The /co/ thread I got that image from said it.
If someone can dig up a fairly recent interview with the artist where he says otherwise, I'd have to accept that I'm wrong. But until then I'm going with the general concensus of /co/. This is their designated area.
Shitposter is new enough to believe that if I posted something I'm claiming credit for having made it. Well, that explains a few things.
He believes we've just made all of these images. That's why he's telling us to stop. For the record, only like five caption images in this thread are new. The rest are months old at least. Reposts. This is not happening in real time. You are not witnessing history. This was already a thing.
In general? Dante is my favorite by far, as I think the Divine Comedy is the greatest work of literature of all time. More commonly, I read things like Poe, Byron, Lovecraft, Hemingway, and even fantasy like Robert Jordan. I've been reading Tolstoy lately and I've been wondering why I haven't read him before.
I really need to get the divine comedy. All I have been reading lately is pomo fiction shit which I really like but need to stop.
It's worth a read. Ciardi translation for simplistic beauty that is about as close to reading it in Italian that you'll get, Longfellow for the traditional, dense beauty that people have read for decades. But seriously, just read whatever makes you happy. /lit/ be damned. Not to say some of their suggestions aren't great though. They turned me onto the King in Yellow which I very quickly fell in love with.
I don't really care who translates it because it's 15th century italian and I already have paradiso. Postmodern bullshit does make me very happy, thank you :^)
I should probably read the Divine Comedy before Moby Dick and Ulysses huh
Eh, at least before Ulysses. I can't recall that it will make much difference there. It for sure won't with Moby Dick. I would just tackle that Leviathan (kek) by jumping right in.
