Cordyceps by dloliver Cordyceps by dloliver
Not entirely sure what I had in mind with this one.
Something vaguely mothy.
Apart from that, couldn't say.

One to return to later perhaps. Not completely happy with it just yet. Got a few more ideas in my head but for the moment have had enough of moths.

Beautiful colours, the soft blending of them makes this creature look cute and creepy at the same time.

gorgeous drawing. The cordyceps fungus is indeed terryfiying, and the moth looks covered in it. the skull-shaped growths are a nice touch. this could be the final boss for 'the last of us.'

The 'Chin' is a proboscis. it uncoils to feed on flower nectar.

fav!

Don't know entirely what it is, but my imagination seems taken by it. Great work on the bones, especially the 'chin'.
