That's okay. I didn't need sleep anyway. D= (That's a compliment, in the "this is creepy and brilliant enough to keep me awake" sense.)

Is this creature related in any way to aboleths? Because the mucus (?) and the holes in the side make me think of aboleths...

Huh, I haven't heard of aboleths. I'll look them up.

Thanks for the complement!

I always love perusing dA for creature pieces, you're guaranteed to find excellent designs like this one. The translucency of the skin really gives a sense of reality to it. Very cool, pretty creepy.

I would like to use the image in a Magic Set Editor custom project. It is really just a pet project, no profit, purely for fun. If you'd like to know more, please feel free to ask for the details. If you'd prefer if I didn't, just say. Thank you.

The tendrils remind me of some of Miyazaki's work. Neat design -- I like this quite a bit.

It looks amazing. Does it manipulate water (which clings to its body) or is that slime or slimy fins of some sort?

:iconaburnier:
aburnier Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Student Filmographer
Yeah, the original concept was that it manipulated the hydrogen bonds in water in order to extrude features or to ensnare prey. Glad you liked it!
