I'm also open for sketch commissions, note me here or email me at chunloart@gmail.com if you're interested.

==================================

Trying out styles, not really sure if it's working out. Would probably go back to my old style soon. Also I have a video tutorial coming out soon for an upcoming piece, so look forward to that.

===================================

Bagraam, The Deception of Devourers

The Bagraam is a special breed of insect that despite constant shedding and regeneration of it's exoskeleton has never quite developed an exterior for it's rear. This of course leaves the creature vulnerable to attacks from it's rear, but the Bagraam has perfected a way of luring it's prey and/or enemies using it's weakness. The rear of the Bagraam is quite unique as it resembles a deer/dog a common prey or plaything for most other organisms. Using this in mind the creature carefully lures it's catch through displaying it's rear in a fashion suitable for the situation, such as pretending to be injured to attract predators or enticing onlookers with elegant movements.Then when the catch is caught of guard it lunges from behind and swallows the prey up whole.

The rear can often be seen "grazing" during the spring time thus furthering it's illusion to potential prey, but in actuality the creature is only preparing for hibernation in a similar way as a bear does by plugging it's anus with leaves and twigs. The "snout" is it's anus. The Bagraam's favorite food is human children, as their curiosity is quite easy to lure.

At first gaze I thought this was just another soft fantasy-scape which incorporated various dragon-unicorn-innocent children elements. Upon reading the description and looking at the piece again I now find it disturbing on several levels: 1) I too was "tricked" by the deception 2) that child appears to be in danger, and 3) this thing isn't as truly outlandish as it may seem because actual creatures (like the angler fish) use similar predation methods such as camoflage and lures. Spooky.

Very interesting. Did you make up this creature? If so, the bio is very well thought out.
