Hanger Sketch by GingaAkam Hanger Sketch by GingaAkam
This guy; well isn't he a cutie. Just look at that smile.

Hanger has a story planned for him; it's a two part story.

Had a lot of inspiration for this guy; the main inspiration was from a monster who appeared in a story that I planned to write quite a while ago (never got around to writing it though.) The monster's name was Skin Hooks, and, like Hanger, had wires and hooks all over the place pulling and stretching skin. Although Skin Hooks was more beast-like, with Hanger being more humanoid. Skin Hooks' anatomy was probably more close to a werewolf than a man. The pulled back lips were also inspired by Skin Hooks.
The milky white and dead eyes were inspired by the deep sea Hatchet Fish; those fish are . . . adorable . . .
The metal attached to the arms was simultaneously inspired by both Rake and Lurker (Silent hill Homecoming) and the pale skin is partially inspired by Rake; but mostly because I couldn't think of any other skin color that would look good with him.

The missing bottom half, hooks, tri-hook fishing thingy, and piece of spine showing were all mostly new when it comes to my monster designs. It's a little hard to tell from the pic; but his bottom half is kind of torn off just leaving the spine sticking out, folds of skin are wrapped around covering the exposed muscle and organs and stuff, which are held taut by the wires attached by hooks. Those metal poles/sticks whatever on his backs are holding his face like that. The small ones on his neck are holding his lips back, leaving his mouth in a permanent grin of large teeth. The larger sticks are attached to his shoulder blades, those hooks are attached more forward on his mouth; he can move his shoulder blades to control these wires to open and close his mouth.

Now on to his behavior. He roams the forests; going from tree to tree using his hooks on his arms. He's carnivorous (who'd a thought) and often tries (and often fails) to hunt the wildlife. So when he fails and is hungry he hunts humans. Mostly silent; the only noise he makes is the clink of the metal on his arms as he swings around. However; he can also emit a sound of either excitement or pain, it sounds like the cross of a hawk's shriek and what a cat might make if you step on its paw.
He also can swing his body forward, throwing the hooks that hang below him forward to try and hook something or someone. If he falls to the ground then he usually tries to reach around and grab a tree branch. But he can also crawl around at a moderate pace; because I imagine hooks wouldn't be as efficient as curved claws (Like Lurker has) to crawl around.

Hanger is meant to be a one-time story monster (Like Nightstalker) but hey, if I like him enough and if you guys like him enough maybe he'll appear a few more times. Although probably not added; more like a few time appearance guy, like SCP-173

... Why are you so good at creating characters? Hanger is really cool! It was such a creative idea with the hook-theme.(clotheshanger) How do you get inspiration for awesome things like this?
And I agree; Hatchet fish are super cute! :3
(Great, I just spammed you with ranting comments saying the exact same things as everyone else. Silly me..)
