Salamander by Lizzy-John Salamander by Lizzy-John
Geez. They've added even more subcategories since I submitted here last. Is there really a need to be so specific?

Critique and comments welcomed and appreciated. Hope you dig.

Perfect layering of the scales. I really love all of its crazy, almost human limbs.

This is very well done. I enjoy the fact that a Tribe or village is battling this creature as if it were an everyday problem.

Such a beautiful and magnificent creation! I love the dark, carbon coloured scales edged with bright bronze-orange and placed like armour all over his body. It's tongues intrigue me. They remind me of something from a movie like "Beetlejuice". It's teeth and limbs and overall appearance is just magnificent! I love this!

goddamn this is stunning
I really like how the mouth is the center of this pic with it's bright and sharp dark color- even though the red is barely bright at all- due to the depth of this picture and how the body fades back into the distance
eee they all look screwed lol. I can't see them piercing that armor. (hell I'd like to own a scale from something like this)

Calling this piece "Salamander" really hooked me for some reason. I think it's because, when imagining things from the perspective of a foreign culture, things become skewed from your own. A salamander (I believe the origin is central american?) to its parent culture is a reptilian monster that breathes fire, but describe that to a foreigner with limited linguistic translation and they'll probably think you're talking about something completely different. A monster by any other name, I suppose? Come to think of it, drawing this monster in a simple, two-dimensional style would reveal a reptilian beast that looked as though it were breathing "tongues" of flame.

The human-like biology of the forelimbs adds a disturbing element. Good juxtaposition with the bestial biology of the hind limbs. I also really appreciate the detail of the warrior's armor, demonstrating that somewhere along the line, somehow these people found a way to defeat such an enormous monster.

I don't really know anything about art but if the body of this beast is as heavy as it looks, wouldn't it be harder for it to keep its tail up considering that the legs are closer towards the front?
