Mumphit

Gotta thank the moderators on this one; their comments when pieces are rejected can spawn so many cool ideas. This guy has been kicking around in my head for some time now, and his current incarnation came about from some much needed encouragement, and my long standing desire to do nifty little field guide-esque drawings. And the fact that I've been perusing 'Shaxspere' and the Canturbury tales. Fun unhomogenized spellings! This started as a pencil drawing, but I played in Photoshop to yellow the background and give my pencil lines a reddish look. The only thing I don't like about it is that I didn't use a ruler for the text and it shows. Mumphits are carnivorous faery folk. They hunt in swarms of 200-300. What they do is set one of their number out in the open to catch the eye of unwary humans. The lone Mumphit then performs any number of stupid pet tricks and cute antics to hold the victim's attention. Their adorably large eyes and curly antennae aid immensely in this part of the hunt. When the human is thoroughly enthralled, the rest of the swarm falls upon the prey, taking tiny razory mouthfuls. Their bite anesthetizes the victim, so the flailing ends quickly. Soon, there is nothing left but a pile of clean picked bones.
