There’s something about this photo that tickles me.
Is it that Grendel appears to be leaning into the light, as though it exerts a force on him like wind such that he has to brace himself in order to remain within its warm embrace?
Or is that his position makes him look tubby, portly, like a little fatty whose plump belly supports him as much as his legs do?
Something else entirely?
[btw, that’s some portion of Vazra in the bottom-left corner]
