This weird plant creature, vegetal, eats flying insects... I started this creature in 2012, little by little because I did many things at the same times ;)
At the beginning, she looked like that : here.

And now that's one great question to be answered! The features in this monster corresponds to reptiles; a combination of different types of reptiles fused in one creature. It also gives a conception that it can mostly be located in swamps. Drawing it in a twisted position maintains that although it's a monster, it's still a plant. It reminds me of those fictional plants that I used to see in cartoons when I was little. Nevertheless, plants generally are curved. Also, I like the anthropomorphism shown by that ornament on its arm. The glow on the insect makes it and the area surrounding it the focal point of the subject, and with the way the plant is taking over immediately proves to the viewer that it is a monster plant - a ravenous one!
However, a part from the dangerous-looking side, somewhere in my mind tells me that it has a very sympathetic side: that pose, those eggs, nerves and the fact that plants grow on the surface of 'Mother Earth' conceptualise an embryo. The soft lighting and mood allows the viewer to focus on this beautiful piece and many of its aspects without stressing the eyes. In conclusion, I love it all! You are truly talented. Well done.
