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.
but is it friendly??
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!
Seriously though, I think he's just gorgeous
