Great depiction! Very close to how I imagined the Slakemoth. Those wings are hypnotizing!
This is by far the best rendering of the Slake-Moth I have seen

Ooh, this is awesome, better than whatever I was imagining. (Just finished the book and browsing DA for fanart, glad I found this!)

I never imagined the Slakemoth like this, i always thought it would be much more Insect-Like, akin to a giant moth. but i think your version fits as well. good job.

Looking at the wings is trippy. And the head kind of looks like Venom's from Spiderman.

Looks like a Byakhee crossed with an Alien and rainbows, kind of. [link]

I'm loving that stringy form and position, as well as the sexy colours that mould together so well in his wings, tail, and tongue. And the sharp points. Can't forget them sharps. What a beautiful fucking soul-sucker. Gotta read his book now.

" It then extends a slimy tongue into the mouth or other orifices of the victim, into the brain, and suck out the mind."
it sounds painful.

Wings are definitely fukken hypnotic. Can imagine the patterns changing like oil on water. Different than usual stuff - looks awesome.

I need to find this guys books. They sound cool.
Also, after reading the wiki entry on them, 'dreamshit'? Sounds a bit like something you would say.
