Beast of Flood by Viergacht Beast of Flood by Viergacht
A commission for :iconcryptarcane: of his character Demerui.

Again, I had plenty of artistic freedom and a wonderful character reference sheet by :iconaedensolus: to inspire me. Ever since visiting the Iziko South African museum and getting to see all their therocephalian fossils on display, I've been wanting to draw a gorgonopsid and this was a perfect opportunity, although this is obviously a more fantasy based take. I struggled with composition at first, but I was doodling while listening to an in-progress version of one of Piet's band's new songs and came up with the idea of the water rushing and twisting around him as if he was summoning & controlling it, which fit in with the character's described powers. I tried to give him a gleam of intelligence in the eyes.

The entire picture is fantastic, but I think my favorite part is the water seeping out of the cracks between the stones! :)

It's breathtaking, from the composition down to the little details, e.g. the skin. o.o
