Character SmileBeast

This is a creature design I have titled "SmileBeast". Although it may seem like shock art, I decided to make this creature very personal to me. It is symbolic of the monstrosity that is depression. It represents how those who suffer from depression put on a fake smile, a facade, to function in the outside world even though they are dying inside. The very front-heavy shape of the creature represents how imbalanced depression sufferers feel in their daily lives, and claws represent how depression sufferers often unwillingly lash out at those nearby.

As a person who suffered severe depression in the past, I really appreciate what you have done. But for some reason  this reminds me of the male genitalia :D

Thank you so much! Yeah, the phallic appearance wasn't at all intentional, but I can see how one would interpret it as being that way lol
