this is very well drawn, but i would not want to actually see that on a beach somewhere. :P

Looks really cool, the overall shape of the skull looks similar to a camel skull.

I like how normal this scene looks. Like, that gull doesn't even care that there's this hellish thing on the beach. He's probably going to try to eat it.

I LOVE researching these things..... and thinking about how nightmare-inducing, terrifying, and alien whales would look without all that blubber........... >:) Y'know?
Alberthein1 Featured By Owner May 17, 2014
Without the blubber, whales would probably just look more like a dolphin, but still whale-ish.
Just compare the skeletons. They're not that weird really.

Unless you've got a greaaaat example, ofcourse. But whales won't look like demons without blubber xD
La-Anime Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Student General Artist
oh yes I do have great examples....8D look at the Beluga skeleton, Sperm Whale skeleton.... and oh God... the Baleen Whale skeleton. O______O imagine THOSE GUYS, with just muscle and skin instead of AAAAAAAAAAALL that thick blubber. there are a lot of spaces on their bodies I HAVE NO IDEA what kind of connective tissues or what kind of blubber could be there that looks totally natural.... their bodies are so confusing. but there's always that EXTERNAL organ, even on dolphins that takes up that big ol'--- forehead? No, nose of theirs. their MELON. I can't believe it's actually called a MELON. haha... we have noses, whales have MELONS. 
those whales... no, the beluga, the baleen, the orca, and (this one's a fish but it fits into what im saying) the basking shark are really hard to identify when they're heavily decomposed, and have washed up on the shore. A giant beluga washed up on the shore of somewhere waay close to the pole in Russia and some soldiers at some base near by found it and it looked like some kind of loch-ness monster I DON'T KNOW IT WAS JUST FREAKING SCARY.... It took people a while to figure out it was a heavily decomposed 6 foot something BELUGA. IT LOOKED ALL HAIRY.... I guess that's what rotted blubber kinda looks like after a while... A baleen whale washed up on a shore, of course heavily decomposed aaand the locals obviously thought it was some ancient dinosaur-godzilla-thing from the deep sea. Or an alien. All the baleen were gone, all of the connective tissues that kept it's jaw together were gone so it kinda had the face of one of those aliens in Halo. In japan, a deep-sea fishing boat caught a basking shark carcass. when they pulled it up, what remained of it looked like a plesiosaur. They thought they actually found one. Here's what hapened:…
Same kind of thing with dead whales. (IM SO SORRY PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR RAMBLING... ^^;)
Alberthein1 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014
That image of the basking shark being decomposed might prove as an interesting creature.
I suppose… would be a wee bit alien, as if it were a larvae of a big bird-like being that just grounges about the earth eating any small creature in it's way till it becomes a huge-ass toucan or what not.. (that or it eats tons and tons of berries a day xD)
Those with the.. heh.. Melons.. like this one… would look like gigantic mudskippers, where the outward sticking bone on the skull would have the eyes up high..
The skeletons you seem to point out to generally look like non-adult beings to me, like they're a fearful being in their larvae/baby state but should become something worse.
I guess I know where you're coming from, but I would be facinated by those creatures.
Even if they were to be quite deadly perhaps :P

I had been wanting to do something like this for a while lol.. more so just for a beach scene of a carcass and shore creatures picking away at it.

Not to give any less respect to the picture. But I just read a book in which a dragon was asleep in the ocean for hundreds of years, then woke up, went on land, and was killed, ending up back in the sea. And this just just made me really happy. And really jealous because I couldn't make anything that good even if  worked for days.

Love that the seagull is just like "wut."

Seagull: I fly away to eat trash for ten seconds, TEN SECONDS, and you come to my section of the beach and mess it up.

This is really awesome! I'd love to sea one of these things fleshed out.

You draw strange animals very well, but I'm sorry, the gull is my favourite in this picture.

Lol, it looks like you're so used to drawing awesome fantasy creatures, that a normal seagull looks quite ridiculous next to it...xD
