The Watatsumi: Wonder of the Seven Seas Concept Art (2D and 3D prototyping)
Planning to develop concept art for a video game of my own creation. However, I have developed artist's block. Therefore, I'm relying on the DeviantArt Fantasy Art community to come up with ideas for sea monsters, islands, ships and what not via text description. For those who are willing to give commissions, send me a Note in the following format:

Commission Topic: (Character Outfits/Environments/Creatures(Enemies)/Weapons/Items/OC Cameo)
Description: What do you want out of this topic? What are its capabilities in game? Is it Alive?
MS Paint or Traditional Acrylic?: Your Answer.
Deadline: When do you want it to be done by?

For those who do not know about the project: The Watatasumi project is a video game dev project about pirates, seafaring and the like. Some of the environments of which will focus around Japanese and/or Okinawan cultures. Namely for how the titular being in the series is based on the sea deity of the same name. 

Here's the link for those who want to know more about the inspiration for this project.…

For those who are also interested in the project, contact me via Notes

AKA the Aquaculture Serpent.

It is a coastal-pelagic, plesiosaur-like creature found worldwide in boreal to warm temperate waters around continental shelves, sometimes entering brackish waters. Preferably swimming in temperatures of 8 to 14.5 degrees Celsius, but has been known to cross warmer waters near the equator. Often seen close to land, such as bays with narrow openings.

Unlike most reptiles, the aquaculture serpent does not hibernate. It stays near the surface for the sake of being an air breather. They move slowly and do not evade approaching boats.

The aquaculture serpent is a ram feeder, filtering zooplankton, attracting fish and invertebrates that also feed off of zooplankton. They do so swimming forward with their mouths open. Like snakes, their jaws are unhingable, allowing them to expand their throats in order to ingest an excessive amount of 60 or so fish or invertebrates.

This benefits fishers and sailors for their capability of being living aquacultures. Some (when young) are kept as pets by crews of such.
