Custodian of Sanctity by SteveArgyle Custodian of Sanctity by SteveArgyle
"What's that you say, staff-thing? It's time for murder and ice-cream?"

Demonic possession of inanimate objects is a sadly overlooked epidemic of the modern era. And yet, many of us are affected by it every day, unaware of the infernal machinations at work.

It doesn't have to be a perpetually flaming screaming skull, either. Whether it's your misbehaving car, laptop, or an X-Box that begs for you to marry it and take it away from all this, most of us have at least one trinket of the damned.

The things to watch for: Does it ask you to feed it? Does it refer to itself as the "Nigh-Omnipotent Devourer of Light, Condemner of All Things, Hammer of Decay?" Does it occasionally cough up a small animal's remains? (Stuffed animals count.) Or, the sure-fire giveaway, does it have the universal symbol of the diabolic? (Looks like an apple with a bite mark.)

I love this pic~! :heart: Can't believe I just stumbled upon it while doing HW. And yes, Apple's products do act up sometimes. Been having lots of issues with my ipod. After I couldn't take it, I reset it and restored it from iCloud. It's a bit slow and apps still crash, but it's better than before.

So amazing! Love the detail of the face, especially that eye O_o One suggestion is to put a little glow from the far eye, unless it's un-glowy, so that we know it's there. Otherwise, stunning!

I can't decide if it's your art or your commentary that I crave more of. Gotta be the art. Might be the commentary. Could be the ice-cream...

I think I've had a few trinkets of the damned. I think a couple of them ran away from me. Traitorous little bastards. Never had any that came with a tattoo, though. Very nice!
