Mortasheen - colored Eledirge by scythemantis Mortasheen - colored Eledirge by scythemantis
"This rare and valuable monster is prized for both the beauty and danger of its melodious piping, capable of driving other creatures into a terrifying furvor as their senses are overloaded with surreal, synesthetic hallucinations often accompanied by an intense feeling of dissociation. As the frantic song intensifies, listeners may begin to believe they occupy a wholly different reality in an indescribably alien form.

Eledirge are difficult to replicate faithfully, their psychosonic powers dependant on a precise arrangement of neural broadcasters and vocalization tubes. Rumors abound that even the finest specimens pale in comparison to the long-lost original, whose singing is said to have truly broken the boundaries of reality. Unsurprisingly, many Unknown-class monsters seem unaffected or even bored by their musical stylings, one Xenogog infamously dismissing an Eledirge symphony as "kiddie fare."

Terrifyingly mystical. Not a hostile looking thing, and almost elegant in the arrangement of its parts, but grotesque none the less. I like it alot.

So would the long lost original's song have unknown-class monsters snapping their fingers and tapping their toes?

Eh, they might give it a B+ to A- for effort but it kinda tries too hard, and an umami shift right after a red itching is kind of amateurish.

Another wonderful redesign! And now I'm imagining a Xenogog with a squeaky "alien voice."

This is my favorite redesign yet, I think. It's the delicacy of the arms and especially the hands, such a tender grip.

YAY! One of my favourite oldies. I really love how every redesign you give him just makes him increasingly more disturbing
