Wow, this is magnificent! The horizontal composition is interesting, cause normally a piece with a gargantuan creature would have more vertical composition. Along with the warm colors and slight... I don't wanna call it blur, but I don't know what other term to use, that gives it a sort of out-of-context feel. You only see part of the creature, you don't see much apart from the creature and it's sorta like an image in a dream, passing by through a dreamy afternoon. The design of it is also cool. The chest plate things and various spiky protrusions are very cool and I like the glowing "eye". It feels more wooden than anything, like some imperfect but powerful force of nature. Weird and out of its context, just like we perceive it. Maybe it's the power of association to other such creatures, I don't know. The detail of its "bleeding" is also a nice additional detail. Great job!

You got it perfect! I wanted to keep it not super defined, so you can place your own reading in it. It is inspired by the Phyrexians, a race of machine monsters from Magic the gathering. Tho, the concept on this one is that the orb-like feature where the "eye" is, is like a sentient core, that wherever it is placed, it will raise a body from the adjacent materials, giving it that organic look

This is the stick seller who is moving from one landscape to another!

Nempatriarch responds:

Exactly! That's why I painted him with a "stock" of sticks haha
