Dave I'm glad to inspire. And big thanks from everyone for the kind comments.

well I like it, I mean I really like it, but i'm gonna be honest with you, I don't get it, can you maybe give it more of a story, like what are the tentacles?
The tentacles were in the original concept of it (see new image below) and while they don't really have a definite backstory I was thinking along the lines of Black Fantasy and the Apocalypse in winter all at once.
The usage of the 1x1 teeth was actually borrow from flickr user -Mainman-, so I can't really take credit for that.
The image went a little funky with resizing in GIMP, but this was the original cartoony concept for the entry. As you can see the general concept is the same only if I had, had the pieces I would have possibly expanded it a little. Also I had planned on doing a custom flag, but that too became a little more complicated than expected. Anyway here is just a general look at what was planned and the outcome.
