Anatomy of a Hearth by DimeSpin Anatomy of a Hearth by DimeSpin
So what's inside Hearth? Oh you know, backwards organs, storage closet, staircase, the usual.

Drawn with the GIMP.

this is incredibly interesting. :) If the bottom one is what's inside him, what's the top version for?

The top one is his skeleton, the bottom one is his organs and internal rooms/storage. If I had shown them both at once equally as visible, it would have been too messy.

Hearth may be your most fascinating creature yet. I love what you said about his memories being in the storage room in his chest, that's just brilliant. The whole creature is pure genius!

Goodness this is beyond fascinating . Nobody has asked why he"?" is standing on his tippy toes like that . I guess I will .

While a lot about Hearth has little rhyme or reason (besides "magic is weird"), the tip-toe thing does have something of an explanation. Fairies are sensitive to footsteps which they recognize by how much magic comes under foot with each step. Smaller feet are, magically speaking, quieter and less likely to draw attention.

Oh .....well , I never expected that explanation , but I do follow the logic of it .

Bdghfgasjg this is so beyond awesome.
I mean, it's so creative! I love how his actual mouth is on his tail, that's really cool, and I looooovvveee hisssss toeeesssss~~

If you don't mind me asking, where is his brain? :>

:icondimespin:
DimeSpin Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. =)

His brain's functions are scattered since the expected organ isn't really there. His little people represent his conscious mind and most of his senses. His brain stem and autonomic functions are in the expected place in what space is left there. Everything else and particularly his memories are in the walls of the room in his chest.

Hearth is just brilliant, whether inside or out, apparently.
Does he need to breathe?

Thank you. =)

Yes, he absorbs what he needs from the air through the walls in the room in his chest.

But what about the two little people? Do they just... Go in their dog-part's bladder?

Like I said to ~Nighzmarquls, the little people don't eat and they only drink tiny amounts. They get rid of that small amount of water they consume through sweating.

What about for the little men that visit?

Hearth's little people aren't visitors, they are parts of him. They don't normally eat and they drink tiny amounts. Their waste (what there is of it) is normally removed from their bodies by sweating. The larger body handles the major work of turning food into energy, the little people benefit from this without contributing.
