Illustration - The Thing from Outpost 31 (Original Design)
Initially I started this as a demo on my stream and it took on a life of its own (how appropriate). The Thing is one of my favorite creature feature fx movies of all time, and I wanted to challenge myself to create a Thing transformation focusing on the desperate last shred of humanity in the host as they are consumed and replaced by the Thing.
Thank you for running this contest! I'll have a look to see what other monsters I can post
