floaters by V4m2c4 floaters by V4m2c4
the seserasinus jaculum live relatively solitary lives, floating about the atmosphere feeding on air born invertebrates and larva. Medium sized males out number the colossal females exponentially. This causes a massive switch in males during the mating season, causing them to become quite aggressive towards one another, so aggressive at times that cannibalism amongst males have been recorded. a female can become impregnated by multiple males throughout the mating season but males will actively protect their massive mates regardless. two oval sucker-like organs flank each side of its head. These are used to suction on canyon walls. females rarely roost, most of their lives are spent airborne, it is speculates that a female that roosts is close to death, as even the dispersal of eggs is done in the air.

Beautiful spec biology! Can you please define "medium sized" and "colossal"? :)

thanks! a female can grow exponentially, if left unharmed, but most reach the size of a blue whale before succumbing to disease, predation or death. This particular female is a rarity, one of the largest around. Most females wont reach her size, she was just "lucky" enough to have enough food to continue her growth. a male reaches 6ft.

How do you create the textures on the creature?

I think with this one I used a honeycomb style brush that I then modified to get other shapes.

How do you make something like this? I've been trying to turn my sketches into something like this, but can't do it, can you give me some help. Id like to learn...

hmmm. I think its all about having an interesting composition. I know one of my problems when coming up with an illustration, as opposed to a diagram drawing, is that I ALWAYS draw a profile of the creature, to show the whole body. But that isnt always the most interesting image, clear but not as enticing. I would try to play around the view point of your critter/characters. as for the rendering, I'm not the best at it, so im not sure if im the right person to learn from :/ BUT there are PLENTY of tutorials out there, even on DA. I hope that answers your question!
