Some say Caduceus fell in love with a patient’s intestines, and since then he’s been diving into open wounds of hapless victims cut up upon the Medic’s operating bench in search of happiness. She swears he’s probably not poisonous.
I went and redesigned YLO Medic’s pet snake after seeing the Backstabber’s Boomslang (and surprisingly learning the differences between snakes that constrict to snakes that bite).
And here he is.
WHY ARE YOU SO DARN CUTE!? WHY DO SNAKES WITH THOSE ROUND PUPILS AND PUPPY MOUTHS LOOK SO ADORABLE!?
I also guess this is now the first (kinda) concept art for an item, since you know, there’s Archimedes as a cosmetic item. So maybe once we see more of the YLO mercs, it won’t be long till we see a Caduceus model.
And yes, Cad’s YLO Medic’ little good boy. Go ahead and imagine YLO Medic saying baby talk to her little boy (Oh and she has other snakes too btw :P All kinds of snakes…ssssss).
When I posted him on Twitter, I got a lot of the same reaction from Ducks fans: he looks mean. And, well, he does – or, more accurately, his mask does. But if his mask didn’t look mean, I don’t think he’d be Wild Wing.
I assure you that he is very cute underneath the mean hockey mask.
The latest subject of the Cuteify NHL Mascots project is the Chicago Blackhawks’ mascot, Tommy Hawk. I have nothing to say about Tommy Hawk because I see him around all the time, and he might try to eat my head if I say anything bad about him.
Now, Al is a special case for a mascot – he doesn’t walk around or do birthday parties or anything like that. He just hangs out in the rafters of Joe Louis Arena during the playoffs, looking threatening. Therefore, all I really needed to do was create a simple octopus design which still cracks me up every time I look at it.
