Walking Limb Disease by GuthrieArtwork Walking Limb Disease by GuthrieArtwork
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
This horrifying condition was first documented when a former astronaut, misdiagnosed with restless leg syndrome, woke to find his arm detached and crawling around the room. Walking Limb Disease is believed to have come from alien pathogens picked up somewhere on the astronaut's travels but its exact place of origin has yet to be discovered. Once infected the symptoms are quite similar to restless leg syndrome until of course your afflicted limb detaches. The creature must gestate for several months before it is capable of detaching and surviving on its own, once it detaches it will continue to mutate to better suit its survival. Walking limb disease can affect both arms and legs, but thankfully there have only been a handful of cases...so far.

Nice design. I doubt that this thing is infecting head though... if so, patient more likely would end up in "coma" until head goes on adventure of its own.

Your Welcome ^^.
I love that movie too :D. The Thing is something I'd rather not encounter if it were real. I can take Necros, Xenos, Dinosaurs, The Flood, or any horrible monster and creatures then The Thing.
The only thing that comes close to destroying my fear chart is The Flood and the Necros! The Thing has it demolished though lol.

If there is a gestation period and only astronauts are affected, it can be screened for.
Then the humans have the pleasure of knowing their arm will detach in a few months as they go to bed every night:P

Can't say this is usually my style. But it's one of those things that makes you think when you're arm or leg twitches or accidentally moves 'is it coming alive?'Lol.:lol:

Verry nice, and thought provoking, piece!:nod:
