Dread by Taluns Dread by Taluns
I found some really old line art! :0
I decided to clean it up and finish this piece.

This guy is Dolmono. He's actually quite an old character but I always shied away from drawing him due to the complexity of his design. (Hence why I only have done a headshot here ^^; )

To cut a long story short, he's bad.
And stalks one's dreams, imagination, senses and causes general insanity. And he loves it.

So this is where your Youtube profile got its name. And Goddamn is it a hell of a namesake. What the fuck is Dolmono? :icondragonidleplz:

I love the design though. Multiple mouths, bioluminescence, no visible eyes and a vicious demeanor about him; this would be an epic boss in a Video Game, that's for damn sure. I would love to have a description of his full design because this is intriguing as is. But now my curiosity is going to eat me alive. :icondragonxdplz:

I'm not quite sure myself! ^^;
He's a monstrosity that thrives when a person leaves themselves open due to fear. Nobody knows whether he is a physical being or a sort of spirit or vision.
But he is able to distort his body, alter the person's vision of reality, and eventually drives them to the brink of insanity. He can, in fact, cause physical damage too.
And he's almost impossible to get rid of, or 'kill' as any damage that seems to be dealt to him heals fully within the month.
Some say he's connected to the moon somehow.

Haha, well like I said, he can distort himself so his body can look different from time to time.
His unaltered body is quite draconic, but he is wingless. He has massive armoured plates that run down the length of his body. If seen closely, they have intricate winding patterns on them.
Instead of wings, he has tattered spines that stick out like spider legs, with rough, ripped membrane that hangs of his bones.
His stomach area is impossibly slender and strange bones push out from his skin.
His tail is a mess; it looks like a thin snake trying desperately to escape from an explosion of spikes and bumps. It curls and twists in unnatural ways.

Wow, sorry for the long message ;A;

This is freaking awesome! If this is just the headshot I can understand why you might not do his full design often, it would be amazing to see though ;)
I really like this, the background adds a mood to the picture and the coloring is amazing. The overall design is creepy yet cool, Gah this is great :D
