thank you! unfortunately the contest ended ages ago,
my entry didn't even get through to semi finals...

lol thanks:) i guess they weren't looking for something that looked drawn, they wanted something that looked computer designed and uber-realistic....
shame on them for not telling us all first, i say.
meh. never mind.

I was going more for how scared I'd be, rather than how much I'd be shielded. :XD:

was aiming for a deep sea angler fish crossed with a remora eel kinda vibe to the head, the legs were based on the japanese spider crab though very loosely..
a few people have said it looks cute too lol
surely it must be a good thing?;-)

Combination of different things + your style = should give you good result) Don't worry about that. It's only competition) (sometimes I want to say: it's only the most important thing in [my/your] life and [i/you] missed it! Only!))) Lol)

yeah i hear you, life is for living, not aiming toward a goal, whether it is a realistic goal or not, it should only be second after enjoying the life you are living!
many people think i am strange for thinking this but i feel that if everyone else thought htis way the world be a nice place to live in... you get it, and so do a few other artist type people around the world but for the most part people are just trying to get somewhere and forgetting who they really are on the way.

All over the world we have one fashion: to wear masks on our faces and play someone other.
I hate this fashion. I like real people with their real life and problems. I don't like look through pink glasses. I don't like theatre with size of the world.

the masks are for their protection, they fear what they do not understand and so hide from it like children hiding behind their mummy's leg.
agree so whole-heartedly!
people are generally not willing to look beyond the pink glasses, it gives them something more to feel so they do not have to think about other people, only themselves.
tool lyrics would really appeal to you, they are also very angry about what we know:-0

maybe not the word you are expecting; But it is utterly Adorable!! :love:
that face is so cutsie I just wanna huggle and never let go^^
and are some parts transparent? it looks absolutely epic..
I shall not fight it, I will tame it and ride it like a mount. Then those dragon/wolf/horse lovers can sit on their tiny creatures while I scoff at them :D
________________

also; I didn't see the water'ish elements at first, but when I zoomed into close-up wiev.. oh golly It is incredible... The way you merged the legs and torso with the waves are simply ingenious. Looks like it rises from the stormy seas, even on land.
