Leviathan by Zeeksie Leviathan by Zeeksie
At the age of seven I kept having this recurring nightmare where I would find myself in the middle of the ocean. I remember I felt exhausted, I tried to swim but I could not move from the spot. Things took a turn for the worse when I noticed an enormous shape ascending from the depths, it was heading towards me, really fast. But I really felt horrified when the beast emanated a deep growl that felt like a shock wave. Fortunately for me, the dream ended at this point.

I can't say this an accurate depiction of the sea monster from my dream but it's close enough.

The design of this is superb, to say the least! The form is like something you'd see in a prehistoric sea creature, but at the same time is like a mythical beast, like a dragon.

The darkness and angle in this is impressively used, and it gives a whole atmosphere to this creature as being a fearsome thing with an immeasurable presence.

I think that this is easily one of your best works. You were able to create such a fascinating thing to look at, something that looks both horrifying and enthralling at the same time. It's scary, but you can't look away.

I can imagine it saying, "Cthulu ain't got shit on me!"

Talk about your scary sea serpents that threaten to rise from the water's depths to eat you alive...and did I mention that this one can eat your ship too? And maybe use your sails as a toothpick for its many fangs!!

"Leviathan" by ~Beloved-Creature is one of the best Leviathan artists that I've seen in a while. Having gone to do some research for a tribal style prize that I'm drawing for a contest winner of a leviathan, I stumbled across this breath-taking piece, and I have to say, ~Beloved-Creature, you have done an AMAZING job!!

I love the faint tinges of light blue and white in the background that seem to provide just enough light through the water for us to see this fearsome creature's true form and power that would make us quake in our shoes. The detail of this piece is very well done, from the tentacles, not a one looking the same as another, to the veins in the fins portion of the tentacles, the scales on its lower body, to the armor-like plating on its head.

Great work, ~Beloved-Creature, and I thank you for sharing this amazing piece of work with us ^^

I've always found it fascinating how huge the imagination of people can be. Especially when it came to monsters and creatures - not as much for gods (Or at least I think so xD). I love reading about them, but what has surprised me most was how people draw them differently from each other. I just love it! ^^
