Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Twisted"

I tried to modernize the "Book of Kells" type illumination which you'll see below. As I made the, uh, beings fatter and fatter, the 'tails' didn't really look like tails any more.


Note the original size of this illustration. It was copied by George Blain for his book, "Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction."

VERY GOOD! And no, the tails do not look like tails, but little peni. (Is that the plural form?)
May I steal that?

This is very clever. Looks like a game of TWISTER gone bad!
