I drew this for :iconelite-dragon-artists:'s contest.
The creature is mostly based on the viperfish. There are lots of really cool deep sea fish species, but the viperfish is my favourite one along with Gigantactis (and the blobfish is the most hilarious):)

There's actually a fish called the black sea dragon, 'Idiacanthus Atlanticus' not sure if you took inspiration off of it as well or not haha.




Dramatic Image of one in real life:
