Dracolestia xengola by rpowell77 Dracolestia xengola by rpowell77
The Dracolestia xengola, also called the Eurpoan Dragon, due to it's appearance, can be found under the surface of the moon Europa of Jupiter. It gives of a lot of bioluminescent light to attract small prey, however it can 'turn off' this natural form of lighting when it is threatend or when it has eaten it's fill to disappear back into the abyss.

Very strange and beautiful. I'm curious, what is Eurpoan?

Oh, I remember reading that once. It fascinated me at the time, with it's possibility of having water.

No prob. Your art is excellent and very imaginative! I look forward to seeing more.

I really like this. I don't see very many concepts for Europan life: this one is good, I like the form, and the technique. :thumbsup:

Seconding :iconnicksketch:'s opinion about looking like a underwater photo. And I love how you've got the small lights going down his arms and body. Reminds me of comb jellies. And it's epic that you made it see through so you can see the organ system inside. That's so cool.

Very nice! I think you've done a great job of capturing that otherworldly look of underwater photography :)
