DJ8 - David and Goliath by kheleksul DJ8 - David and Goliath by kheleksul
CGhub's drawing jam #8: David vs Goliath:
"the topic David vs Goliath isn't limited to the biblical story but more the idea of lil' underdog vs the (seemingly) stronger/bigger opponent"

Massively fun to draw. Enjoy. :) I know it's not my usual stock, but I'm getting tired of seeing hairless monkeys in my gallery.

Oh yea, and no one else commented on the apparent shallowness of the water, and the way that tail just comes out of it. Says my sister, the only person who noticed, "it must be part water creature part dune worm, to be able to burrow so deeply into the sand underneath the surface so easily". So. Just so you know. It's part water creature, part dune worm, part flying monster. *rofl*

Higher resolution images will be available in real life (re: conventions), but won't be posted online. Sorry! :<


EDIT: Thanks to :iconpercavius:, the beastie shall be called the Gammaray - "just like gamma rays from space, it can effortlessly move through air, sea, and earth." :D

The fish's expression makes this seem horribly one-sided, but looking at the boy, I get a whiff of childhood wonder.

Forget the fishing pole, boy, you're going to need a shotgun for that whopper! :iconfishplz:

I love his mustache :D. And how the top part of him looks part manta-ray and part-spaceship. Gammaray looks awesome! I'd like to take him home with me, but I don't think he'll fit in my bathtub :(. :iconbowlplz:

This is just amazing. I always knew there were bigger, more awesome things deep under the sea. I love the colours, particularly the green/turquoise reflecing from the water onto the underside of the Gammaray. I'm so glad I discovered your gallery! =D
