Death Trap Naga by assassin-sylk Death Trap Naga by assassin-sylk
I am highly proud of this piece. I think it came out very well. I would be happy to call it close to if not the best image I have drawn in a very, very long time. Probably the best.

This is a concept for a creature I am modeling at TAFE this semester. The task is pretty open ended, concept, and model it. So it's pretty easy to understand.

This creature actually came to me in a half dream, it was funky. Admittedly though, it looked better in my minds reality, than it does here, I think that's due to not being able to replicate a dream distinctively.

Description

The Death Trap Naga is a highly vicious creature capable of catching its prey in its four arms and dragging into its mouth, which is a direct line to the stomach, obviously.

This creature is a hollow stomach creature. Meaning it ingests its prey, digests it, and then excretes the undigestibles, leaving nothing usually but bone, and hair. What makes it so dangerous is the fact that it is mobile. It isn't rooted to the earth like most other hollow stomached creatures, enabling it to kill more people than any other carnivorous hollow stomached creature.

The Death Trap Naga stalks down corridors within the science lab it was created in. It is the result of a D.N.A Splicing test between several voracious plants, snake, and human DNA. Having lived within the facility, it has evolved and adapted to survive within the circumstances offered, although it can survive without eating for many years, if given the chance it will consume everything it finds, until it is incapable of moving. Unlucky enough for anyone who comes across one of these hostiles, it digests prey within 24 hours of consumption, ensuring very little chance that the Naga will be incapable of movement. Resulting in a 99.9% sight to death ratio.

So far as it is known, this creature is incapable of reproducing, although no Male specimen had ever been successfully created to provide extensive tests upon a reproductive system. Understanding that nearly all scientists involved in the DNA splicing facility were killed, eaten, or had fled before analysing this creature could be a result in the absence of any knowledge of reproduction.

The only reason there are any notes at all on this being are because some of the original scientists involved bore witness to its voracious appetite and had enough sense to scrawl said information onto pieces of paper and pin them to as many walls as they could whilst running as fast as possible in the opposite direction.

[More Info Required]

So there you have it. This is the creature you want as a minion. Not an enemy. Think of the possibilities, if only it would take harness. >=D

Anyways, I worked on this over three days, inputting maybe 10 hours total into this piece, I am once again highly proud of it, and would appreciate any input what so ever, be it bad or not, tell me what you think :) I would really appreciate it.

Full view is 1142x1398px, please full view for more detail.

She'll tear your face off.

And eat it.


Twice.

Does it enjoy willing prey?

That depends entirely on what you mean by Prey.

Try and feed yourself to her, and she'll tear your throat open.

But she would eat the body though, I assume?

No.


She'd just tear your throat open.

And leave you bleeding to death on the floor.

Hmmm, that is a very dangerous creature you have there. I have a few OCs that might be interested in conducting some experiments on one of them. :P

I can guarantee it'll be internal.

Maybe, maybe not. The OC in question experiments with infecting random creatures with Flood spores so he's pretty good at surviving.

I love this thing, it's great.
Lol it has teeth in it's vagina.

I was going to comment on the lines, they looked odd next to the coloring. Looks like something that was meant to be a pixel character in a game.
Almost like it was painted on a canvas and then someone just put lines around the painting with photoshop.
Like Tibia or something. But then I looked at the label for it xD.
Game development.
(I wasn't going to comment but I still did, just in case this wasn't the effect you were going for..It's what I got.)

Anyways great stuff.

I must say I feel slightly scared from it. Kind of the creature you expect to meet in those mad scientist video games. (F.E.A.R, cough)

Quite the unique design, I`ll hand that to you. The colors and shadings makes it really nice to look at too.
