Picture 1 of a two part series. In the Bible God shows Job the largest living creatures on Earth, the behemoth and the leviathan to demonstrate the futility of going against God. That sparked an interesting idea, what if God decided to wipe the slate clean once more but used these giant monsters instead of water or fire? Make for a cool movie! I decided that the beasts will have to be the size of mountains to cause global destruction as well as being proof any human weapon. Plus its cool to make a monster that makes Godzilla look like a Japanese citizen size wise, lol!!! The monster bears no resemblance to the biblical image as I wanted to make something very fierce as well as powerful (apparently the behemoth was a vegitarian and looked a lot like a dinosaur).

Stocks Used:

Sky and City - resource cd from Advanced Photoshop Magazine (no idea which one).

Monster - photos of prehistoric bones taken at various museums

Missiles - I cant find the source for them right now, if they are yours please let me know and I will credit you.

fun fact: according to the old biblical tales, on the day of Final Judgement, Behemoth is destined to fight Leviathan. Their battle will be of EPIC proportions! It is also said that during their battle, Ziz will appear to destroy both Behemoth and Leviathan.

Ah now thats very interesting, I wasnt aware of that legend. In my own mythology for these creatures they are Beasts of the Apocalypes. Behemoth will consume the surface of the earth down to the bedrock. Leviathan will drink up all the oceans and fresh waters and the Ziz will inhale the planet's atmosphere leaving no chance for anything to continue living on this world.

Obvious inspiration from dunkleosteus and a raptor.

But it has a raptor sickle claw.

The dunk yes, raptor, no.  No this guys body morphology is much closer to what they ended up doing with the Skull Crawlers in the new Kong movie. The leg limbs are more arm and shoulder in structure than leg and hips.

Isn't that a raptor sickle claw on the back foot? Also, are those eyes on the bottom jaw? If they are it reminds me of the link below.

Interesting, Id never seen the Megavore. Lets see this was made from the images of several fossiles, the spines are megalodon teeth. The head is a modified dunkleosteus and yep its got eyes on its bottom jaw. It spends more looking at what's underneath it than what's above it. It only has 2 legs. I think what you see as a back leg and claw are in fact its tail curving away into the background.

Ziz is nowhere near as known as Leviathan. Also why haven't you made them it's been a YEAR.

I like how 90% of it's eyes are on the bottom of it's lower jaw. This makes complete sense, since a creature that large wouldn't really need to ever look up.

That was exactly my idea when I created it.

Multiple times Id say.

You know what the scariest part is? The fact that it has incisor teeth, which means it frequently hunts prey large enough that Behemoth has to cut it up into smaller pieces rather than swallow it in one bite. 

Also, I'd like to see how God worked around his own square cube law with this thing.

In my mythology for this beast it has this shovel like mouth to consume all the surface of the earth. The Leviathan will drink the seas and the Ziz will deplete the atmosphere.
