Golden Interdimensional Serpent Redux by GuthrieArtwork Golden Interdimensional Serpent Redux by GuthrieArtwork

First Post of 2012! I had hoped to get this finished much sooner but alas it took longer than expected.

This is a redesign of one of my creatures which originally looked much more like a regular gold snake with hair however since this is a creature that travels between dimensions I tried to make the design more alien. These creatures are powerful and intelligent beings capable of slipping through the barriers between alternate worlds in order to migrate between dimensions. Their armored bodies protect them as they drift through alien worlds and their multiple eyes allow them to see in various environments. Where eyes are of no use their tentacles help them find their way.

This is such an overwhelming piece I don't know what to address first. The colors just shine in the darkness. It looks so regal and kingly, as if it was a mighty and terrifying ruler of a large domain, a monstrous, yet beautiful, ruler. The size of the creature is done so well with how it just coils in on itself, and the eyes on the bottom! Nice touch, as if it has two heads. The bottom would appear kind of shark-like with those teeth while the top appears to be like a snake. The bottom part even looks like a beak. The red hair is a perfect choice of crown for this amazing king and stands out well against the gold. The way the tentacles tangle the hair is makes it all look so smooth. I love how you can look at an two pair of eyes and see a different creature altogether. Even the tentacles look like small snakes! The armor gives it the feel of a centipede, which is a unique choice. This is so absolutely perfect, I might just watch you without looking at any of your other works! If they are even half as good as this, then they're still twice as good as most art I've seen. Very good. PERFECT, in my opinion! I love it! Hope you keep up the good work. And don't ever stop, man! This is too good to stop! <3

You've done an amazing job at creating a more-than-snake that is still recognizably serpentine, despite its horrifying alterations.

I love this creature, and it takes a lot for me to be impressed by creature art.  You brought some really nice elements together and put them together just right. Especially the upside down eyes in the jaw. I really like that. The hair like quality is the most original thing I've seen for a serpent in a long time. Props to you.

Beautiful attention to detail with your textures and lighting. And I got chills when I noticed those creepy eyes on his lower jaw - nice addition! I feel like those hidden features really draw the viewer in. :3

this sent reminds me of slifer the sky dragon from yugioh, something about the shape of the mouth but apart from that. the design is most interesting!

 

the eye design is particularly different and the tentacles are nicely placed, the over all detail is absolutely amazing, along with the light and dark shading and the back story is nice, an epic looking serpent to be sure!
