    I think its looks a little to hard edged in places for it to be an underwater creature. It also looks very dry. But other than that, you have an awesome piece right their :D

    Did you watch that movie where they fly to the icemoon called Europa? I don't remember the name, but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw your creature. It's a cool alien. I wonder what it looks like with the mouth closed.

    Only thing I dislike is the DOF, which I presume is a ZBrush render feature? It looks much better if you mask it in Photoshop and apply a lens blur using the layer mask.

    This is really cool, I've always had a thing for giant sea monsters. What material or matcap did you use for the renders?

    I think it could use some different shades of color. Cause for me it looks to purpley. Maybe some shades of blue and pink could add some flavor. Also it would look cool if it some variations in it and not be symmetrical on both sides.

    Thabsks guys, i was goign for some kind of shelled armour like things on the top of the creature, but it could be tweaked. Yes ui thought it looked a little dry I wasn't sure how to get a good wet spec on it, i could have duplicate the material and upped the spec i guess and painted it on for goo d highlights?

    @Sinking - thanks man no i haven't but i'll have a search for it. I kind of thought the mouth closed would be like a squid in that dart shape, but i might try and visit that idea next ;)

    @arcitecht - thanks dude me too! ;) its a modified matcap from zBro, with a negative temperature SSS and different lightcaps per angle.
