God of Gelatin -- Work in Progress

God of Gelatin, Regency era and primal. Delicious treats!
(Click images to enlarge.)
Added some gelatin-containing foods to the sketch (counter-clockwise from the far left): Trifle, animal hide glue in a pot, licorice allsorts, gumdrops, jelly beans, and marshmallows. I'm hoping to stick a glorious giant aspic in the back, full of hard boiled eggs and bits of meat. 

And I still have to work in the nymph/fairy/pixie Isinglass. Isinglass is the swim bladders of fish, also used to make gelatin. I kinda think Isinglass is a lovely name for a mystical creature!

Here's my initial post on this sketch, with more details.

Is the human figure the Mormon God, Joseph Smith?

Heh! No, it's not Joseph Smith. Although after google image searching him, I can kinda see a resemblance! Kinda funny. I didn't really have anyone in mind when I was drawing him, but I think he turned out looking a bit like Seth Meyer :P.
