I met two creatures like this in a dream. They appeared as this sort of jumbled combination of fish, sheep and human traits. They told me that they pose as beings of Good, so that humans may follow their word. They give humans a list of Good Things to do (this list was already in the humans' mind anyway), and ask that humans do these Good Things. Whether humans accomplish Good or not, they shine for the effort they put into it. The creatures then eat the light that striving humans give off. They didn't want to eat the light that shined off me, because I said that the light was only sunlight reflecting off me. I do not strive to do Good Things very often (that doesn't mean they don't happen by accident though).

Wow, the detail in this is fantastic! A very interesting creature too. I love the hair so much. The pencil shading is excellent but I can't help but wonder what this would look like coloured. (I'm a colour nut ^-^) Well done! *does first comment waltz*

:-) Terrana L. S. Cliff replies: "Thanks! It's not actually pencil; I did it in photoshop. I might color this one eventually, because I think that would make the fish/sheepness of the creature a bit clearer."
