Another picture about the species Parvus Scolopendra. There is something, which I call "addiction" because I really enjoy drawing them and their abnormality. Sensitivity II shows the back of the creature in a quite femals position.
Not only the head is transparent and covered with a membrane like jelly-fish skin. The back is one of the most important characteristic of the Parvus Scolopendras.

Sensitive and vulnerable, the creature's shoulderblades are covered by a row of spikes. Something that makes the content of the picture dubious.

When I started drawing the face, I thought that I won't continue it. The inspiration was there but not the motivation. After I reached the back part of the head and the first arm, I unconditionally wanted to finish that picture. The more I came to the end of the drawing, the more detail I wanted to put in.

In the end, it took me 3 hours to draw. Rubber was used for the transparent part of the head and a part of the back. I currently have the fetish to start my pictures as final drawings on bristol board. It's a challenge for me, which I actually like. It's funnier than tracing the lines after scribbling on normal paper.

Have fun.

I like this picture and the details you've put in it. It is truly the kind of picture which you can admire for days and still find something new to marvel about. After only a few minutes of viewing it I've only just noticed the delicate nerves/blood vessels in her fins and her peculiar finger shape. And I'm virtually blind (just imagine what those more perceptive of you see…)
