Iceberg Devourer by VegasMike Iceberg Devourer by VegasMike
C.O.W. Painter Photoshop 5 hrs

This massive alien sea creature uses icebergs as a nursery for it's unfertilized eggs. The female will deposit the eggs in the arctic regions of the planet. The eggs form one large pod that the iceberg forms over time. The eggs can lay dormant for centuries until a male of the species detects their presence within the ice. The male will devour the iceberg and uses a thermal reaction within his body to melt away the ice and awaken the eggs for internal fertilzation. The fertilized eggs are released threw special blow hole like vents on the back of it's body.

First of all, love this.

Second, I'm trying to find this one creature art and maybe you could help. It's digital of a HUGE monster that's walking over a human city but the creature almost looks invisible. I think it was mostly blue and white in color.

Woah, that's pretty cool! So I assume those little spots flowing from the back are the eggs? They sure are tiny! O_o

Considering how many eggs there are, I think it's safe to assume not many will survive. They must have to lay that many for a reason.

I can't imagine what something that size does to the ocean just by swimming. If it sped up, it could cause a tsunami.

totally awesome. I'm on an ice binge myself at the moment. There's something inspiring in anything antarctic. Probably because the land is so unknown.

I have looked at several of your works and I love how you play with the concept of size. The elephant is big, but the crab dragon holy S*#T, and the Rock monster who holds a valley on his back, excellent imagination!

This creature also lays its eggs in your glacier monster perhaps? Haha, once again great artwork. I felt like just making the connection between the two. :P Kinda like those wasps that lay their eggs on tarantulas and such.
