Babakiti by CoyoteMange Babakiti by CoyoteMange
Gaping Witherling • Viridiform Strain
Babakiti travel by levitation, and have a strange shadow that resembles claws or pawprints. They are large and intimidating, and can emit a low frequency rumbling when they gape their mouth. The sound is very disturbing to other Witherlings and usually scares them off. Babakiti bodies are large but weak, made of tender vegetation with limbs that swing loosely in the breeze. They are very temperamental, normally only seen in pairs.

This is an amazing creature, I can't even find words to describe how I love it. It feels so natural, like a nature creation. It looks like a plant and an animal at the same time, very interesting to explore all it's details. Love the colors!

I love these, scary but delicate.

I know I haven't commented on these before, but this design has really struck a chord with me. The way you illustrated the Babakiti - the textures you used, and the way it's mouth is open - evoked the concept of an eerie, noisy creature before I even read the description. While all of your Witherlings are amazing in their own right, the design of this creature in particular really hits the proverbial nail on the head; and that is very difficult to accomplish. I sincerely hope that you keep working on your Witherlings, and I hope that you continue to grow and challenge yourself with them - obviously it has already started working ;)

Nice leaves!

The mouth reminds me of one of those carnivorous pitfall-trap plants, for some reason.

This is very unique, wow. I love the vein on the top of his mouth and how you drew them. :3

These witherlings are very interesting! This one's my favorite so far, I love the idea of the clawmark shadows.

Really wonderful mossy texture!

As beautiful as all the others. I love the idea of them levitating but trailing shadows shaped like paw prints.
