I've seen these on Tumblr. Who was the artist again?

They're neat concepts

In the show it has two extra flaps(?) with some sort of teeth or stingers on them, don't they? The episode where Kelly drank from her friend, it sliced her cheek when she was pulling the stinger out (if I remember right?)

Mike Huddleston, the guy who draws the comics, did the line drawings.

While I roll with the "stinger under the tongue" design from the books in my fic, I will say there has been many a time where I've been sitting with my chin on my hands feeling how little tissue there is under my jaw and thinking, "How in heck would you fit something that big into such a narrow space and have any room for a regular tongue at all? Plus the neck would need to be twice the depth. Ugh."

Do they also have a regular tongue??

This is the part that confuses me. Are the regular tongue and the stinger/stinger "Tongue" separate from each other? Or does the regular tongue split and the stinger portion comes out of it? I can never really tell. In the graphic novel drawings, it appears as though they do not have a regular tongue (until they do? Sometimes it is there, sometimes it is not?). I might be misremembering, too, though.

Yeah, it's really weird because in that shot of Eichorst, it almost looks like his tongue is split and pronged, and each tip there is a stinger, yet we know that it opens up to expose the real stinger.

I remember reading form the books. That the stinger base is made up of the lungs, and I can clearly see it in the art up above. It's very different from the show. Were the stinger went all the way down into the gut and groin. It was the only real organ in the entire vampire. In the books it's found in the chest. With the vampire having a simplified stomach.  

This makes me wonder about why the changes?

I thought in the books the tongue acted as a flap which covered the opening where the stinger emerged from. I seem to remember a passage like "his tongue curled back and the stinger emerged" - or something to that effect. That would make sense with Eichhorst as what you see protruding from his mouth in the subway scene are the tips of the actual stinger. His tongue would have been rolled back and not visible to the viewer.

Is that from the novels or graphic novels? It must be the novels because I don't recall that from the GNs? That also makes sense, though.
