CREATURE WARS HAS COME TO DA, AND NATURE HAS CALLED ITS CHAMPIONS.
IF YOU'VE SEEN THIS, CONSIDER YOURSELF PART OF THE COMING BATTLE. YOU ARE NOW A CREATURE SHAMAN AND MUST DRAW YOURSELF AS ONE!!!
This means choosing a creature to embody and then creating a self portrait of yourself wielding the elemental might of your chosen species. Any medium, style, or creative interpretation of the premise is okay! You can create a hybrid of yourself or just augment your appearance with the capabilities of your chosen animal.
IF YOU CREATE A CREATURE-SHAMAN PLEASE LEAVE A LINK IN THE COMMENTS SO PEOPLE CAN FIND IT, AND LEAVE A LINK TO MY WORK IN YOUR DEVIATION'S COMMENT.
I'm hoping to start a chain of artists who have been pulled into elemental combat by each other.
This creation is based on some old photos of myself that I started sketching. I wanted a minimalistic theme to prevent the pirate elements from overwhelming the octopus powers. I think it deserves re-visitation, but I wanted to put this version out there to test the waters.
