Brown Jenkin, from the H P Lovecraft story Dreams in the Witch House. Originally I was going to get Richard Svenssonto animate his Brown Jenking puppet, but I decided I wanted to put it in a large scale set rather than just green screening it in. I still think his is the definitive version. But I went for this variation, with much sparser fur so the skin and bones could show through, just to be different. Jenkin is a rat with a human head - head needs to be a bit ratty to go with it, but not too ratty or you've just got... a rat. A lot of the inspiration for this version came from Max Shreck's portrayal of Nosferatu, a vampire with an affinity for rats rather than bats.
