Mortasheen - Crocodemon by scythemantis Mortasheen - Crocodemon by scythemantis
Crocodilian Vampire

CLASS: Vampire

At rest, this fiendish creature resembles the crocodile, alligator, caiman or gharial it once was, though abnormally large with pupil-less white eyes and a curious acidic odor. When ready to hunt, it undergoes accelerated metamophosis into a more sophisticated form. Strong and fast, the fully transformed Crocodemon tears its way through barriers in search of nourishment, secreting an acid from its claws to even rip apart metal.

----

ART STUFF:

I used a Ghavial and the Rancor creature as a (somewhat too obvious?) reference, but it came out looking like some kind of Hunter from Resident Evil, which I didn't even think about. I don't think it looks enough like one to be a problem, though.

Er, I think you forgot to upload this onto the Mortasheen website...

I know you've given the Mortasheen vamps an overhaul, and a lot of the older designs have been reassigned or dropped. Still many of them stuck in my mind, and Crocodemon in particular is one of my favorite Mortasheen monsters. I love vampires and crocodilians, so a combination of the two makes me giddy as a schoolgirl.

To be honest, I whole-heartedly agree. Crocodemon is one of my favorite monster designs and I would really love for it to come back in some form.

Hmm, there's a certain campy value to this one, like something from those cheesy old monster movies or the Goosebumps series [I assume you know what that is...?].

XD

Also, may I ask, what is a gharial? I've never heard of it in my life...

You can just put it in google image search ; p

It's the coolest looking and weirdest of the crocodilians. Especially the males, during mating season, who get this giant tumorous black blob on the tip of their nose to advertise their manliness.

Because black blobs are manly.

You're a treasure-trove of weird biology scythemantis.

My, they just keep getting better and better!

You should publish a book of sorts about the Mortasheen universe; in it, your uploads and their creative descriptions. I'd buy it, and I reckon' a whole bunch of other people would, too.
