Just one raw sketch. Sometimes I want to paint a picture of this creature. Actually the name is not my idea but is from a text based e-mail game. A friend asked me what a Gnutzfrolonck looks like and this is the result of my thoughts. Done with pencil.

I love this creature. =)

:-) Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Thank you! I hope I will be able to paint the whole creature soon as I planned it since some time. I think, too, that this creature has been one of my better ideas."

7 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Thank you for your comment. I don't know if you read my longer answer above about Gnutzfroloncks. There are different states of life. They start as larva, continue as small and evil creatures, often use to watch dark and wet places (in this state of life they are often favourite food of orcs) and growing bigger they claim these places for themselves (tough luck for the orcs who didn't eat them in time, for as soon as the Gnutzfroloncks are big enough orcs become their favourite food). Later on they start wandering through the world not anymore eating meat of their victims but souls. Therefore they search for humans, dwarves or elves. Their souls are more filling than spoiled orc souls. The last state in life of a Gnutzfrolonck is to become a demon larva. Becoming a demon or becoming possessed by one they stop being Gnutzfroloncks. In my world Gnutzfroloncks were last seen in their demon larva form in the ancient times of the demon wars. I better stop now with my answer before it becomes a book."

It remeinds me of a goofy looking evil moster mutated porkipine.!! I love it! great work!

12 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Great that you like it. And actually in this state of their lifes Gnutzfroloncks are not that intelligent, therefore goofy is not a wrong word to discribe it. Though I would never tell this one of them... Thank you for visiting!"

22 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Thank you, I'm glad you like him, but beware, it's no very nice creature!"

Aaaahh what a happy, whatever it might be. Thanx for commenting on my work you should give pen a try its easier than it looks honest!

1 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Thank you! It's a Gnutzfrolonck. Actually the name is from a text based German e-mail game called 'Ork'. One day some friends asked me what such creature looks like... And I use ink pens very often, though there are no works made with them in my gallery until now."

Looks more like La ChOOPicabRA to me man, .. eat demers gotas man ya

12 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Maybe some people called such creature ChOOPicabRA when they first met it. It's a really mean creature and demon larva and surely has many names!"

Well...with that said...
Awesome work.

1 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Yeah, isn't he a sweet little baby? Okay, it's better not to meet him or you would learn more about his 'inner beauty' than you wanted (he's got a big stomach'. Thank you for your comment!"

Whoo!Cool drawing, and a cool name
Gnutzfrolonck...Gnutzfrolonck...kcnolonrfztung..it sounds German if you spell it backwards...never mind, crazy thoughts

12 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "I always thought it sounds German in any direction this 'Gnutz-fro-lonck'. Actually I like this name very much, it's much older than this picture and unfortunately not my idea (the name). Thanks for visiting and commenting."

I saw this once a while ago, and I thought I'd commented on it then, hrmmm....I guess not, woops.

Anyhoo, I like this guy. He's sorta cute in a freaky don't-wanna-meet-him-in-a-dark-alley sort of way. I'd really like to see a painting of him, or at least some more drawings, I'd like to see what the rest of him looks like. Does he have wings? Does he walk on two legs or four or seventeen? Things like that, ya know? Well, neat drawing, I look forward to more.

9 Oliver Jöhnk replies: "Okay, believe it or not, I wrote a verrrry long and detailed reply for this nice comment. Unfortunately my reply vanished due to the April 2005 crash and I don't know anymore what I wrote. Therefore I'll be happy that Elfwood is back, thank Thomas and all the great people who spent as much work on this and leave it with this. If thers's still anyone who has questions regarding this creature, just ask and you will get a reply."
