Monster Thing by Scatha-the-Worm Monster Thing by Scatha-the-Worm
Added 7/9/13

Ok, I know I showed some of you a different pic, but this hit me at work and I liked it a lot more. This is for *SirKaijuOfVaudeville's Creature Challange, which goes like this:

A sea monster so large it devours entire countries whole in a single gigantic gulp, its head can tower up to the sun and when standing, the deepest parts of the ocean merely reach its knees. It can drag multiple families from the shore to its mouth hinting tentacles or arms of some sort, and they can survive in its stomach for days to weeks, long enough for rescue by god or hero.

I may color it later, but I wanted the lineart up because if I DO color it, it will have ocean water up to it's knees and that would pretty much cover the tail and the one foot.

Thanks, MM! :D  Still not all that sure if I even want to color it, though.

Above all else, I'm impressed by this beastie's exotic yet heraldic feel. That robust mix of beak & fang meshes fantastically with the embellished tongue-forks, and the strategic spine/horn distribution renders said garnishments all the niftier. Plus, what's not to love about solidly-realized hexapodal body structures? Finally, for some reason I'm liking the lack of tail-stings/skewers...if the description's any indication, this leviathan has minimal need of extra pointy stuff or venom. TL;DR version: dat face.

Looks awesome! I wish the description had more physical traits, but you came up with a great design!

Haha, thank you, Jessy! :D That's pretty much the point of this whole challenge, though-to be given the same vague description the ancient peoples had and see what you can do with it.

Very nice! The general aesthetic of this beast makes me think Primal Rage meets Pacific Rim; Vertigo as a Barlowe & Del Toro kaiju, maybe. Pretty badass. Love the shape of the jaws and the angular back spikes/blades!

What. A. Beast. But it looks like nothing as I expected. I expected some sort of squid-like beast.. but this.. wow. I WANT IT.

To be fair, I had something like a squid in mind, but it just....didn't want to come out, you know? This one just wanted to be drawn more, I guess.

It comes off delightfully eldritch. not just using that word, either. I can see this thing coming from the unknown and knowing nothing about it.

Thanks! Eldritch really just means "eerie or unearthly" so you're using it right either way. ;)
