The first thing I thought was that "huh... doesn't look so big..." Then I clicked on the thumbnail to realise there was an entire valley underneath that thing. I like the use of colour here: the hot red/orange for those creepy eyes and the smouldering whatevers burning in its... drool? The cool colours everywhere else really highlights the contrast. Ultimately, the feel of the work is like a fantasy trading card. It just looks like it could be on one.

I can hardly register a complaint, though I would have to say the wings look like they're at a weird angle.

Anyway, it does fit the theme of Death pretty well. That drool is certainly devastating. Overall, great work. (Only seven hours? What?!)
What do you think?

He indeed has a wonderful death like apperance, with the black oil like liquid from his mouth, multible eyes, eel-like body. Gorgeous piece!

Azela~ I would hate to be under that thing >.<

Mystify~ The people of the little village were out doing there evening things, getting home while the children played for the last time today.
Soon the village feel asleep, no lights were on, a perfect, dark world.
A little girl sat staring out a window, and saw a cloud coming slowly.
She sat and watched, and fear rose in her chest as she saw six burning eyes, and the smoky black stuff leaking out of it's mouth.
She ran from house to house, screaming for them to come look.
people gathered outside their homes as the thing drew nearer. It stopped just above them, and black gunk fell from it's gaping mouth. They screamed and ran for cover, but it was too late.
As the fire burned, the thing moved on, chuckling quietly to itself.
And the little village, was never found.

Interesting picture. I like snakes and anything snake-like. It looks always so elegant. This dude does too, despite all the menacing...ness. Is that a word lol?
