Dreamodile by Monster-Man-08 Dreamodile by Monster-Man-08
A crocodilian creature I saw in a dream... sorta.

A new fossil species had been found, and I went to make a drawing of it. For whatever reasons I was basing my piece directly on someone else's, though despite having their original work right in front of me I couldn’t tell if it was a painting, a photo, or even a physical model. As I worked, I noticed the image of the beast changed. The basic outline stayed the same, but details shifted every time I looked back at it. What seemed a head became arms, its scaly hide smoothed out, newly sprouted body parts vanished into thin air, utterly alien anatomy reverted to a far more familiar crocodilian form... and vice versa. Even when I thought I had something down pat the small details would alter themselves, forcing me to once again fix my work. The thing was clearly out to spite any attempt at being copied. Was this the original artist’s revenge against plagiarism, or had the paleontologists uncovered something that should’ve stayed covered? Either way, I woke up, looked at the “I dream of painting...” quote on my wall, and decided to copy my copy.

I know you don't do requests, but instead of drawing anything, could you just tell me your opinion on "Deep Rot"?

It's like a memetic quantum eldritch creature whose powers persist even after the original creature is deceased.

Or to put it another way, it's like something that someone might put on the SCP website

Wish I could remember my dreams more often, got some creepy monster ideas from those now and then.

That's a cool creature design! If the "eyes" on the arms were more pronounced, I'd think it was one of those animals that use a fake "head" to scare off predators by making itself look bigger and scarier, like those caterpillars that have eye-spots to make them look like snakes.

Of course, that's just a scientific explanation, and given the freakiness of the dream you describe, I wouldn't be surprised if there was something supernatural at work...
