Moon Charger


This is one of my final pieces for the school year. This is one part of a series of paintings that tell the story of life under the frozen surface of Europa, Jupiter's water moon.

I wanted to try to put my own take on a "Sea horse". The hooves are evolved to work like crab legs in order to pull itself forward in tough currents. The tail is big and mighty to create a steed to be reckoned with!

The humanoid riding it is a denizen of the world. They have no face! Instead, they have a clear membrane which exposes their eyes, skull and brain. They're quite scary-looking, but no more or less harmful than a human.

Very cool original creature :)
I love purple

I keep seeing this and forgetting to comment. Did I ever tell you how BADASS I think this is? :D It makes me hope that there are creatures like this on Europa.

Tektyx responds:

Thanks! If there are creatures like this, you can sign me up for the next voyage to Jupiter! :D

Another incredible piece of art :O
I love your focus on animals, and mystical creatures/beings! It's always so cool to look at either how well you can capture reailty, or portray your imagination :3

Tektyx responds:

Aww thank you, that's such a nice thing to say! ^^
