One of my sketches for the Sketchbook Project: 2011. Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, man. Creepy stuff. :fear:

Pencil, 2010.

Cordyceps are seriously the coolest/scariest things... A human version would be nuts.

I like the pencil work. The details and the sketchiness just add up to the creepy feeling about this thing. Poor ant O_o Nature can be ... cruel!

Not kidding. But so wildly interesting as well. Nature is such a wonderful, cruel, creepy place sometimes.

So that's why I thought it looked like an ant. It's a fungus infecting ants. Cool. :D

Ew. I'm sure I should appreciate the wonders of nature exhibited by this little creature, but ... EW.

Your drawing of it, however, is delightful. Well done!

This makes me think of that X-Files episode where the spores cause the fungi to grow out of people's mouths. Nature is rather gruesome at times!

Nice sketch!

I'm not sure I've seen that episode! Or, well, I probably have but don't remember it clearly.

Oh, man, I saw those on the Discovery Channel, growing out... Freaked the crap outta me. I had a dream it happened to me, but I stayed alive the whole time, and I had no control over my body... Horrifying...

Augh, I remember studying this particular parasite in Biology. It's so crazy that it can manipulate the ant to carry out its will! Pretty terrifying stuff, if you ask me! :ohnoes:
