A Creepy Into The Deep - AC #124 by digit-Ds A Creepy Into The Deep - AC #124 by digit-Ds

My try, to October’s AnthroChallenge #124, ZOMBIES UNDER THE SEA. anthrochallenge.deviantart.com…

I challenged myself to create an anthropomorphic character based on axolotl’s form and, to transform this adorable creature into something creepy and nasty. I imagined it as a zombie that can re-grow its body parts, like amphibians and serpents do but, not major organs, like eyes. So, it is almost unstoppable and unkillable, sneaky and vicious, with a huge appetite…

Made with Mischief and, some post corrections with Krita.

Weedle Yes, I kept most of the rending for this creature realistically enough but, made some subtle changes with the anatomy. The skeleton structure is more erect, the face is less protruded, the eyes, mouth expression and the body posture are more humanoid. For me, the real challenge  was to make this adorable creature (that I so much like) into something sinister and, I hope still kind of cute.

Love the concept of this, wonderful work with the lighting.

Great effect with it floating in the water, one can see it struggling to swim.

One can also see it grow a new limb, eyes are fantastic!!

Great great work.

Thanks for everything! (Smileys) Thank you, I appreciate your nice comments. fella thinking ( Reactions ) I may sound weird but this creature, it kind of reminds me of the actor Edward G. Robinson when he played nasty gangsters roles, back at 1930’s.

Edward G. Robinson? I take it you are past the Warrior Cats, homework-on-the-school-bus stage of life. And yes, I see the resemblance. seee?

60's Retro   I'm guilty to be a retro fan and, there's an archaeologist in me, always digging back in history, back to the roots of everything, cinema including Tv Emoticon.

nothing to feel guilty about. The past can give wonderful perspective. And there's nothing like digging and finding a gem.

Axolotl is such a sweet and adorable creature. I don’t know how it came to me to make a zombie out of it. Bear Emoji-08 (Rolling Love) [V1] Thank you so much that you find it still adorable/.

Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-08 (Heart Angel) [V1]   I’m so glad you find that I preserved some of the cuteness of the Axolotl creature. I didn’t feel very well with myself when I transformed this little cutie into a monster. Thank you.
