Latest Update: Concept Sketch: Critter concept

So here's what I'm thinking:
I want to do something spectacular in a more "oh...my...god..." vein than a "WHOA! LOOKIT THAT!" variety. I've always been fascinated with Europa, the moon of Jupiter that is covered in ice. Some scientists hypothesize that there may still be a liquid ocean beneath the thick, thick ice and that it may harbor some form of life. Reading this as a kid really jump-started my imagination. What if there were life on Europa, and what if it were more than simply microbial?

The scene I have in mind is a probe (manned or unmanned, I haven't decided), after finally having made it through the ice and into the ocean, turns on the lights and discovers an immensely large sea-creature staring straight back at it.

Hashing out the design for the deep-sea critter. I think it may look too friendly, but the harsh lighting may straighten that out. Gotta work on the design for the submersible.

Nice. I wouldn't worry if the critter is friendly or not. Just the fact that there ARE other critters in this solar system would be enough. Keep working with it! :thumbsup:

Sea creatures are the shizzle!

I like your concept alot and your current sketch for the creature is looking good. Will you be doing any additional sketches of the creature from different angles?
