Serpentine Divine by KatieHofgard Serpentine Divine by KatieHofgard
This one was done for technofortomcats, of her AWESOMELY designed character named Kyu!  Kyu's design was created by Neogeen ( www.weasyl.com/profile/neogeen ), who did a fabulous job with the concept.  See original concept work of Kyu here ( www.weasyl.com/submission/4676… )  and here ( www.weasyl.com/submission/4676…; Kyu is a creature based on a ball python, with blue energy emanating from it's body in any shape it chooses.  We went with a sort of tendril webbed fish-like wing shape here, inspired greatly by thedancingemu designs.

It looks like a combo of a sea-snake and a lion fish. But I really like the designs!

I love the contrast of blue on black (and several other unmentioned colors), but than again perhaps I am a little bias?
As always good work! :)

Heh, I'm a bit bias myself!  *looks at icon*  I like colored on black personally, the dark brings out the vibrancy of the colors.
