These creatures are best discribed as huge bloated living hot air balloons. Their gasbags are filled with highly poisonous gas, and they are armed with a deadly scorpion-like tail.

cool. this is a pretty awesome picture. I like the way that you added cracks and dirt onto the picture. I don't see a lot of great drawers out there, but most try and make it all... not realisticy.

:-) Henk Brouwer replies: "Thanks, I tend to go into a lot of detail in drawings, a lot of dirt and goo seemed appropriate for this creature."

I very much like that the balloon is lumpy. XD It's so original! But with that tail....what if he popped himself?

:-) Henk Brouwer replies: "One way to defeat a bloatharg is to trick it into piercing it's own body, at least, that is a popular story told by the bard at the local tavern. "

:-) Henk Brouwer replies: "Yes, That would be a wise thing to do. 1"

Years ago.. People believed that if you gained knowledge, that particular part of you brain would grow.. That where "talenknobbel" and "wiskundeknobbel" and stuff like that, come from. 1 This guy must be pretty smart!

That is damn freaky. I notice your creatures have a lot of ceplhalopod features. Any Lovecraftian influences per chance?
