Islandback by rpowell77 Islandback by rpowell77
'Have you ever heard the stories of a mysterious island? One they call the 'Vanishing Island of the Great Crocodile'. Strange name, yes. It's location is unkown because once found it disappears before the party returns. Many rumours run about for the reasoning; perhaps it is cursed, haunted by the souls of pirates, or even if it is just a mirage, an illusion brought to sailors who have too long stayed out at sea, some say that the island isn't an island at all but infact a giant creature, one that moves through the water, slowly breaking through the sea's waves. A creature that dives under the surface to disappear into the depth to reemerge someplace else. Of course such shenanigans are preposterously false. But look! On the horizon! Is it that mysterious isle they tell stories of? It is, and we shall investigate! As our ship creeps closer we feel an eerie presence, a feeling as if we are being gazed upon by some hidden entity. Is it true?....is the island really haunted?'

:) When I saw the thumbnail I thought that this one has two heads and both of them try to swim into different directions. :D

Nice one.

I love your work, and well this might be complicated, and i might just be over thinking this, but I know this creature would have to be a slow mover kinetically, but what would this creatures diet consist of? :)

thnx, and to answer your question, whatever doesn't get out of it's way...also due to it's size and slow moving nature there is a possiblily that many creatures would just mistake it for an island, or it could feed on plankton and krill, it's not something I really thought about, it's more of a fantasy creature so maybe it won't eat anything and just lives forever, basically it's up to your interpretation...

That thing is huge! @_@ It dwarfs the whales, even! I don't think I would be so worried about that thing moving/disappearing as I would be about it eating my ship whole. :paranoid:

lol yup ^^ if they spray poo in the water instead of on land the fish gather at their anus and just kinda chow down, as gross as that is..

but then again baby elephants eat their moms dung to help their immune systems soo.. yea lol
