Upsy-Daisy by CindarellaPop Upsy-Daisy by CindarellaPop
I'm kindof wishing I didn't do the little victim in greyscale, this piece needs some color and there's no blood in it so it can't be red. :<

Blah fark it.
I decided I needed some more dynamic action shots of Horace. I mean in most of his pictures he's sortof standing there looking pretty, he needs to move around some, I need to put the dynamic figure into action.

Also I noticed recently the way I drew his legs it was impossible to tell where his knees or ankles were so I'm trying to fix that too.

Soooo.... tentacles. :heart:
This is how Horace gives hugs!

Please don't critique the shadow, I already KNOW that part is fucked up.

So what is the story behind this horse?

Horace the horse is a cartoon character gone eldritch abomination. Basically, a cartoon horse imbued with a lovecraftian demon-esque spirit escapes from the television to play havok on normal life.

This is one eerie cartoon! Definitely a darker sort of wacky. I'm a little surprised that-for a Fleischer era character, he has such conventional feet. I would've expected puffy cartoon shoes or clownish feet. What made you decide to go for realistic hooves?

speaking of hooves, this characters stance doesn't seem like he's picking up a human body for horrific tentacle hugs. There's no weight to it, nor effort in his lifting. Despite the fact he's not using conventional arms, there should still be some bearing down on the figure or at least a wider stance or slight bend to the knee.

I had thought about shoes, but I found his creepy semi-realistic feet more unsettling. (Also, I couldn't quite get shoes just right :paranoid:)

I think I'd have to agree. The real hooves give Horace a creepy, "is he a cartoon, or is he some crazed demon?" feel to him. Goofiness on top and spookiness on the bottom.

I'd give my pal :iconroflqu: a look see as he has a fellow cartoon that'd be peas in a spooky pod with Horace [link]

Well, as long as nothing painful or traumatizing happens afterward, and I'm guessing it just might. :P
This character of yours is adorably creepy. Who/what the hell is he?

Why thank you! :meow:

His name is Horace Willaby, He's a cartoon character from the silent era. He "escaped" from the realm of film when his cartoonist committed suicide, because his cartoon couldn't compete with 'talkies.' He's a cheerful sort of chap who goes merrily along his way murdering to take revenge on a populace that shunned him.

Heyyy, you figured out how his feet work! I like 'em.

Also: I was thinking about Horace and I realized I don't know precisely what he is. I mean, it's obvious he's some sort of demonic cartoon, but I'm curious about the specifics (if you don't mind sharing).

Horace is a cartoon character who came into semi-life when his cartoonist killed himself in despair. All that negative energy got poured into Horace, who became a semi-sentient demonic entity who knows no joy save for getting "revenge" on the world that mistreated him.

Of all the crazy characters you've invented Horace is the best/most horrifying. I didn't even realize he didn't have human legs up until now; nice touch.
