Forever Stalking You by nemo-ramjet Forever Stalking You by nemo-ramjet
A mothman / owlman / dimorphentomopterus type creature seen as a fleeting glimpse in the night.

All men (and most girls, too,) have been stalkers at some point of their lives. What if that part of your life lasted forever? What if there was a being whose entire purpose in life was stalking people?

It is both creepy and cool at the same time. Certainly makes you think about what could lurking around the next corner......

I can easily imagine a creature like this dwelling in the forests around my house.

I was completely unaware you did this! What possessed you? Beautiful.

I had a crush on a girl when I drew this... looks pretty dri-like, doesn't it?

Nice to talk again after all the time :)

Finally read all the comments/replies above—that's some good shit.

Mentioning a "crush" in context to this image begs all sorts of questions. Did you morph into a volucris and leave this on her doorstep? 5,000 points for original 'courting' technique if you did.

Anyway, your stalker looks like the old 'male' (wingless) D. volucris, only very emaciated, deranged, and surreal. It's an honor to see its features in your unique (and immediately identifiable) style.

Also, I'm currently working on the final volucris concept. If you're interested to see it or/and provide critique, I can link you sketches. Just let me know!

Yes, yes, please do link me some sketches... The last I saw, volucris were more hexapod-insect-centaur-like than before, or are those different beings?

All the volucris, from their poorly-drawn inception to the latest, five year old rendition, are on this page. They're basically what you described for your piece here; a 'species' of dimension-shifting "repto-mammals," more-or-less.

I haven't delved into the Drii for years. They're just kind of pure mindfuck for me. I think they settled into a rather consistent set of forms similar to this, but with a triangle 'head' (for want of a better word) and body parts that I described once as having "an allo-mechanical, ephemeral anatomical structure, similar to ferromagnetic fluid, with a central axis and no sense of 'up or down'".

I think they're the visual concept of a super-intelligent entity with the capacity to use its body as a means of unrestricted transportation through space-time. Gravity is all but irrelevant to them. I may well scribble some concepts in the future, but it's nigh on impossible to illustrate something so alien and mercurial.

What if these do not stalk us to harm or scare us but in order to protect us? Maybe these are our guardian angels. The covered eye and the pointed finger could not just mean that he keeps an eye o his protégé but also that he can see different time periods (present/future) or something like that.
Also the gesture of hiding one eye, usually the left one, goes way back in occult orders: The eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health.
But it’s either way a great picture!

I didn't know about the Eye of Horus thing - but very good idea about "stalker beings" as misunderstood protectors ;)
