Very interesting creature. Did you create story about him (?) or is there a legend or something like that?
I also like psychedelic colors here.

oh thank You! ^^
and for the interest too! :la:

Well, there's a little about him -or it,because it's a god and genderless :) - more about the place where it dwells... ^^

It's name is Luamarde, Guardian of Dreams, Worldbringer, Insider of Thoughts, The Mediator , the imagination itself and all the instincts.
It's realm is the Bársonyhomály(Velvethaze) Forest, also called Forest of Whispering Dreams, a place where everyone can become a god or goddess for a while...
The whole forest is full of hallucinogenic plants and mushrooms which puts visitors into a sort of sleepwalker state. That's how a person can gradually perceive the "inhabitants" of the forest, because they are only exist inside the borders of the forest.
Anyone can bring their dreams alive here, it's a world within a world...no rules, no morality, only pure instincts: desires and fears. Wonderful and horrific at the same time, depending on what a person brings here...
That's why it's the realest and the least existing place of all the universe.
 
Luamarde is a neutral guide, depending on it's mood it can help or not...Playful and it has as many face as dreams, so not really calculable...
It could expand the borders of it's realm and bring it's wonders and horrors to the world...
It is said that at the beginning of times the Gods themselves dreamt the world here (by that i mean my headworld:Asarögg), but to protect their dearest ones, they left the bizarre and "imperfects" in the forest (or so they thought ;P...)

and yeah, that's it so far... X3

Wow... very impressive. I read few work of different spiritual practics, their conceptions of human and spiritual world, but this one is a bit different from them. You just dont explain your forrest like some sort of magical paradise or something like that, this is very original, I can say. And conseption of Luamarde being neutral with its free will, not evil, but not good either is very cool.
Good luck with your works!

This is a great creature design. The combination between the anatomy of real animals and fantasy elements is very clever. The filigree structures on its head and back seem to be dreams, that are floating out of the dreamkeeper into the world.

well, it was a "sit down and draw till you finish it" type of piece, i didn't really think about things, it just popped into my mind and created itself ^^
(and funny, because this is exactly it's power too: it can make anything alive You've dreamt of or imagine ;3...good and bad alike...
this is the first god-creature for my headworld...:3)

Whoa that design is beast! The colours are really great :). I feel like some parts should be glowing to give it that mythical feeling? That's just me though :P.

WHOAA. That is awesome. I don't know how to rightly express this feeling your piece gives me but it's a mixture of whoa-awesome-want-giddy and a small part wondering how shiny and fluffy it is. Joyeux?

Minden alkalommal amikor erre jártam valami elkezdett motoszkálni az elmém legmélyén, de sosem tudtam konkrétan elkapni, csak éreztem hogy rettenetes taplóság. Na most végre felszínre tört.
