WOOOOOOOOOOT! This is my first color job in Paint tool Sai O_O... OMG it took a long time and I am still not used to it!
Anyways, this is my submission for the Splice contest. The Idea of this monster comes from this Clam thing I saw on TV one day. It opened its shell and it had this nasty membrane thing that looked like a fish, which attracted other fish to its waiting... jaws or shell or whatever they do to eat. Anyways, I thought, how WEIRD would it be if there was a Giant Clam, Octopus, slug thing that had a Human membrane to attract humans to its waiting arms? The things on the front are like sensors, somewhat like a slug or a snail. On the top of the human decoy is a stinger... just for extra nastiness >D
Splice of: Octopus Clam thing (don't recall the name of the species) Sting ray Sea slug
Subject X613 was the pride of the government's Bio-Weapons Division. Nothing like it had ever been attempted in the branch's history. The Creature's DNA was a perfect blend of earth's most resilient predators, including: Hammer Head Shark, Bat, Cheetah, Praying Mantis, and Scorpion.
X613 possessed flight, incredible speed, brute strength, armored skin, and unexpected regenerative properties. The Creature's structural perfection was surpassed only by it's sheer aggression.
Uncle Sam wanted me to create the most vicious killing machine the world had ever seen, and I gave it to them. Of Course no great achievement in science comes without certain risks.
On May 25, 2010, subject X613 broke free of it's cloning chamber two days before it's scheduled “birth”. The Neural up-link implanted in it's skull to control the beast, proved... less then effective. As did the guard's weapons.
In the process of X613's escape, it killed a total of 11 scientists and 23 guards. Not a bad demonstration really, though the squawking generals who funded my research failed to appreciate the achievement, instead fixating on minor details like “control.”
A plan for re-acquiring X613 is still in the works. Though we hope to locate and contain the subject before it reaches civilian populations. The inevitable collateral damage X613 will cause if it reaches a populated area will no doubt make funding more difficult for X614...
A quick concept painting, just for fun. I used too many preset brushes here. The giant is offering the sapling to the girl, or maybe he's taking it away while she waves bye, or maybe they're making a trade for the flowers.
