Uglytruth by Howietzer Uglytruth by Howietzer
Okay, so this idea popped into my head and I had to lay it down. Kind of a mix of the mutant tabacco, with the undead concept... basically, smoke the mutated gasper and you turn into a zombie.

Good luck everyone.

This is for the Ugly Truth contest.

This is absolutely stunning work! The detail that you've put into this is astonishing. From the shiny fingernail and the perfectly drawn ridges on the finger, to the beautifully rendered cigarette, I think this is wonderfully done.

Each of the demons that you've displayed within the ashes of the cigarette, using the heat of the flame to accentuate their faces and show the terrible reality of smoking is wonderfully done. The added skulls hovering in the smoke as it floats off of the cigarette highlight the true dangers of this horrifying habit.

The brand name on the label is a perfect touch. With the biohazard symbol directly above that, I think you've established a wonderful image that captures the true horror of the 'tobacco monster'.

I do love the concept that you've shown here. Thank you for sharing this.

Only true masters of intent could produce such an incredible image of consistently positioned layers of excellent conceptuality, the monster, the food for the monster... I mean, simply epiic. Well understood, well done.

That's really disgusting. I switched to electronic cigarettes a year and a half ago, been smoke free ever since! And by disgusting, I mean you did an awesome job of depicting the ugly truth of the combustible tar and ash and nicotine. I'm definitely going to pin this to my vaping board on Pinterest.
