Evergrin by Lizzy-John Evergrin by Lizzy-John
Done for Conceptart.org's creature of the week, the topic being 'orange sea leviathan'. It's not the most original sea creature design out there but it was fun to draw anyway. :P Here's the description I gave it:

Evergrin's are peculiar creatures that are named for their perpertual smile (guh). They dislike open air, but their (for lack of a better term) tentacles are useful for snatching things closer to the sea surface, such as whales coming up for air, boats, and low flying planes. Attacking manned vessels has created the myth of the giant squid, which, of course, is totally ridiculous.
Evergrin's have no eyes to speak of, but their sense of hearing is equal to none in all the world and they can imitate any sound within it to extreme accuracy. There was once an incident not so long ago where an Evergrin followed a passenger ship for miles until it finally veered off course, much to the relieved sighs of the passengers. Unknown to them, the creature had actually been following the sounds of an obnoxiously loud cd player spouting emo in one of the lower cabins. For years afterward, the approaching sound of 'you are the wind beneath my wings' meant impending doom for a ship or submarine.

Hope you dig :)

Thats a really sweet sea monster! I really like the colors you used, the bright yellow really brings the creature to the foreground rather than having it melt into a murky background as a bunch of sea monster art has.

i love when things like danger can be implied without being stated, like noticing a sign than means something... ig that makes sense

like the ticking clock sounds in peter pan meaning the croc was coming :D

The style is marvelous, the concept is great, I love the harpoontacles, and is that a reference to "Haunted"? XD

Either way, marvelous stuff.

Critique-wise, the background's a little on the vague side. Personally, I think it adds to the style, but ain't nothing wrong with a little sharpening I suppose.

But again, it's bootaful. ^.^v
