    I wanted to show a little on it's origin...

    Considering a Dr/nurse being engulfed as well, but we'll see.

    Here's my preliminary sketch. I'm still not sure what I want this thing to be feeding off of.

    scorge: you sexy beast you!

    Bobby Rebholz: you too!

    been struggling with this tbh, mainly because I wasn't satisfied with most of the ideas I had, but then after painting and deleting repeatedly I finally found something I can kick off of...I'd be lying if I said there was no Giger influence here....
    also posted a little close up of the fetal nucleus thingie....

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    The whole face of the fetal nucleus is definitely creepy!

    Here's mine. Went for a biological source, siphoning nutrients from the ground by hijacking trees. Colour scheme is a bit iffy at the moment. I also seem to have misplaced my horizon line at some point and it has really warped my perspective. Little help please?

    How do we stand on the "No bloblike masses with no shape" rule in the guidelines? Mine looks like jelly at the moment, but I am planning on refining it more as a solid mass.

    Moirae: you basically need to avoid drawing anything that has no discernable shape, for example if someone were to draw Muk or Ditto from pokemon they would not be accepted, since they are just blobs with eyes and a mouth, if you were to draw something like a jellyfish for example, it still has a base shape and internal features that can be identifiable. Even though when washed ashore they can be just puddles of mush. What you have at the moment is cutting it a little close, but if you start to push the design a bit and add some anatomical features you may be good to go, your creature's anatomy can be as chaotic as you want it to be, so long as there are solid forms present. Also remember the creature must have some indication that it branches out from it's central point.

    My Parasite Epicenter

    Wow! I'm impressed by how much everyone has accomplished thus far!

    Colorodo Kid: I like how you are incorporating a unique environment into the project! Does the creature use the theme-park/circus goers as its energy source, or the electricity that would go to the rides? I could imagine a fungi-infested amusement park being a good incorporation of both of your sketches.

    .pc: Your piece truly does appear as though the creature has overrun a facility. The perspective and atmosphere was handled beautifully.

    Flame_Unquenchable: I'm curious as to how your creature is metabolizing the magma- if it cools it would solidify into rock. Does it use this rock, or does it use solely the heat?

    DryShave: Very disturbing. Are you implying she may have given birth to your parasite?

    Moirae: I like the purple/green combo thus far. What are the squiggles up top? They appear to be a lattice it sends to neighboring trees, (though my first impression was lightning in that haunted Halloween way, but it would fit if a creature wants to attract electricity- the top of a tree is an excellent place for that).

    Garanord: My only suggestion thus far would be to add a little more color in your highlights and shadows so that the grey and brown values are not on monochromatic scales. Is it stealing electricity from the neighboring machines? If so, it would be nice to see where the energy is going or being stored. Being insectoid, does it have workers to defend itself or other mechanisms?

    Rob Powell: Definitely getting the Giger Alien vibe! Are the red eyes on the right part of the 'parent' parasite? I would also like to know what the green energy source is and where the nucleus is situated, even if implied only a little.

    That's the end of my inquiries thus far. I like hearing the reasonings behind the creatures and their functions!

    Well, time to share my progress!

    I began with the idea that the Parasite had latched itself onto some ruins in the aftermath of a nuclear war, and that it submerges its tentacles into the waste that floods the area while slowly spreading a network of "roots" and new offshoot parasites. The radioactivity is not only used as a source of energy, but part of their swift and seemingly uncontrollable cellular reproduction- cancerous to a degree. Aside from the radioactivity it dwells in and its flailing appendages, the parasite also has very corrosive spit that it can project a fair distance for self-defense.

    A ways into development I realized it actually looked feasible when flipped as well, albeit as a creature that completely submerges itself in the waste liquid and can spread itself without limitations throughout the new 'ocean'. I might flip the head on the 'underwater' one if it is chosen.

    I'm wondering which image is more appealing (original on the left, 'underwater' on the right) and what changes I could incorporate to make it seem more like an 'epicenter'. Perhaps if I add more of its growth about more ruins in the distance or extend my canvas I can make it seem like less of a singular creature that could be mobile. So far it looks like a partly-rendered neon monstrosity so my next priority is to also tone down receding parts and to create cleaner definition.
