    your creature looks convincing. i like the enviromental lighting.

    how does it attack? when i look at it i do not feel a threat from it, other than scare factor. did you have something in mind?

    i guess it could hold something in with its tenticles - complete with suckers - and chew on it with its glass-lined gums. it looks like it is something to destract fire from obilo's whale.

    It wasn't intended to be a T-dome entrant. I just did it to step away from that for a while.

    I do appreciate the comments though.

    i like this character. are you considering modeling it. i was just curious cause if you did one cool thing to do is animate the texture on it, similar to a cuddle fish. don't know if you are fimiliar with one but they hunt crabs and while stalk the crab they can rapidly change the appearance of their skin and confuse the crab almost to a hipnotic state then snatch his ass, crack his exo and suck his insides out. Oh yeah that is some crazy shit. If you have never seen one in action check out a movie from the library or something. It is very similar to the way an octopus behaves with it skin but most octopus use theirs to be inconspicuious. Anyhow I rambled enough. nice work and I agree with you on the water.

    I redid the water in the background.I couldn't find any decent photos on the web for reference. so I used some old Sorayama work for reference. He has the best underwater look.

    mcotie you rock.
    that new background makes the overall piece look way better, or no you actually touched stuff up, i love his little chin thing .. nice. and the water shade under his far left thing looks cool.

    i think adding a small amount of tiny bubbles here and there would look good. and how about adding some floaties in the water?

    looks great cotie.
