Week 46 - LAVAFISH by danieljoelnewman Week 46 - LAVAFISH by danieljoelnewman
Made this for the #BarlowesRealm contest. I tried to incorporate a handful of Barlowe's structural/textural motifs into the work. This is also based heavily on Dunkleosteus.

Nice, it would definately fit in Barlowe's Hell. Im also rather found of the Dunkleosteus, I used its head for one of my monsters as well. It has such a great skull!

Thanks! Yea, it's probably one of the most terrifying vertebrate faces.

I really like the dunkleosteus teeth. It does a very good job of suggesting something old and sub-terranean.

Looks like a cross between an anglerfish, a trilobite (well, the body), mabye a little bit of Dunkleosteus, and a fireplace. I LOVE IT!!:D

This made my jaw drop! Simply the best I have ever seen of demonic fish, beautifully done with Barlowe's touch to it. It's one of my most favorite illustration of fish!!!!

HOLY CRAP!! Dinichthys meets Coelacanth meets Helicoprion meets...PREDATOR!! IN THE LAVA!!!!
It's like a 10-year-old paleo-enthusiast's wet dream!

Hey, is s/he flying through the air or burrowing through some subterranean substrate?

It definitely has a demonic Barlowe feel to it, especially in the handling of the surface textures!
