Awesome! You didn't only make an amazing beast you Godzilla-sized it. It could be the saving soul of the universe in the right story setting.

That is so cool. I like how it starts out with kind of subtle colors on the right and really stands out on the left.

Chocomix Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
yes! It was amazing! Especially since the climate there is so warm. :D Hopefully I will be able to visit it again one day. :)
Since I've lived in Europe for the majority of my life the humidity is really refreshing.
It started raining while I was visiting.. and there was just SO much rain. Like a waterfall coming from the sky!
And you know, some people don't like that, but I love it. ^_^

I have colleagues who are from more temperate regions of the world and they love it here because it feels like it's always summer and they're always so glad to escape the winter in their country to come here haha! I hope you get to visit again! :)

:iconchocomix:
Chocomix Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah! I felt the same way when I went there. Though I also heard that the humidity can cause problems with mold and stuff.

Thank you! Perhaps one day I'll even move into the area. :)

Do you ever travel around the other areas in Indonesia? When I was very young I went to visit Bali and even though I was hardly 8 I was impressed by the ruins and very old architecture. I could imagine that makes for some great reference pictures or inspiration in general.
Since moving to America from Europe it feels so weird - Everything is so new here!

Last time i ckecked, those beasts weren't so damn huge and didn't have paws
But i'd be lying if i said that this isn't at all fantastic and epic as all of heaven
Also, what is up with the name? Merlion? Is it a mermaid-lion or a Merlin-lion? We may never know

:iconsandara:
sandara Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2017
Yeah, it's not supposed to have paws. But it looks so funny without them!
Sort of a mermaid-lion. :)
The name of my country is Singapore, which means Lion City. The fish tail they mashed on to it was partly due to the importance of the sea to us. (A port city)
