Wow!! I love the creativity behind this creature, it's very lanky and mysterious! I like the mix, it works very nicely. I also like the style that you drew it in! This piece gets my imagination running, thinking of what other types of creatures would exist in the ecosystem this beast lives in! Very well done :)
in this case, that would be a bit impossible. genetic strains derived from preexisting species do naively exist in my world, but rarely are they pure.
the magic system of my world revolves around an alien consciousness being capable of forming a body to house itself in and control the physical world through.
many of those artificial bodies, or their descendants are what make up the ecosystem in the end. because the specific organisms are created for specialized traits, or enhanced beyond what would be normally allowed by natural selection (due to bypassing clumsy intermediate forms in evolution) the ecosystem itself is far more vicious, quick-changing and competitive. additionally, new further-developed strains are being introduced all the time.
it's more complex than that, (there are also individual "alien" minds to account for) but that's the general gist.
I have a different work in which there's none of that mumbo jumbo, but it's quite different overall. and i haven't drawn anything from it yet.
A really eerie critter this one. :O Dark and sinister, and the form... almost like a combination of a bird and rat? Very nicely drawn. Also, welcome to NG! An inspiring first piece!
thank you very much! XD
it's a desert critters, and it's more of a camel/bird/snake/dog thing i think.
and thanks again :)
