Scorpion Pizza Box by StingRoll Scorpion Pizza Box by StingRoll
Hiding in dark and dank alleys here we have the dreaded Scorpion Pizza Box.

Hunting in packs these deadly creatures lure in unsuspecting prey, usually young male humans after their weekend courting rituals at dusk to dawn establishments they commonly refer to as "Niteclubs". They gain their prey's attention by their calls which sound like the sizzle and pop of melted cheese, these crafty creatures also have a highly developed pheromone system which entice their quarry to their demise by issuing out odours that are very similar to highly sought after foods by humans.

Different subspecies of the Scorpion Pizza Box have highly differing pheromone odours, the Hawaiian species has been said to smell like ham and pineapple, while some here in Australia seem to have the odour of various cooked meats and BBQ sauce.

Once a potential meal has been enticed away from his group the Scorpion Pizza Boxes attack on mass crippling him which their razor sharp pincers or paralysing them with an injection of molten hot cheese via their stinger. They then share the spoils amongst the group devouring everything of their prey.

So... the Scorpion Pizza Box has been a design of mine for probably nearly 20 years and I have only just remembered him so I thought I would try drawing him again.

The sketched and inked versions were all done by hand and can be seen here;
And he was coloured with my Wacom Bamboo tablet with Photoshop.

I hope you guys like and as always I am keen to hear your thoughts. :D

Everything in Australia will try to kill you... even the pizza boxes! :lmao:
What a great idea!  Very evil though! And that, friends, is why you should always pay for your pizza instead of going after stuff you find on the streets!  I have a feeling that this lil' monster would be the next greatest enemy to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  :lol:
At any rate, I'm glad you decided to draw down this old idea and share it with us!  It's quite creative!  I also like how you incorporated your da name onto the pizza box!  :D
Great work friend! :hug:

Thanks heaps.
Yeah, death around every corner here in Australia. I love the thought of the Ninja Turtles coming across a pack of these little fellas... I may have to try and draw that at some stage :D

Haha, thanks a lot mate.
I used to draw all sorts of weird and far out stuff when I was younger. I am trying to dig up some of my old sketches so I can revisit some of these ideas.
