Flying Strange by firedudewraith Flying Strange by firedudewraith
For The Far Wild

~
I imagine this to be a very weird-looking creature. I kept tweaking it during design, trying to make him looked right.

It has certain aquatic values (like the whale body, barnacles that forms around his mouth that constantly leaks black smog like a squid, membrane covers part of his body and between his ten tentacles); it also has certain birds quality (like the peacock-like tail that shimmers like the rainbow effect of oil over liquid) and the pinkish wind trail that, tbh I have no idea what to compare with.

Awesome picture. Great perspective and I love the colors of the wind trails, like extensions of the fins.

You are most welcome! The first time I saw this critter, I literally sat back and tried to actually imagine it, for a while. Made me dizzy... ;-)
