What a stroke of luck! I was around when the original entry was in progress, and now, months (if not years) later, here I am again when the accompanying picture gets its debut!

A beautiful rendition, Judy. Just as I had imagined it to be (although I did expect to see a few "sparkles, but then I know how difficult it is to represent them).
In my opinion, it is sufficiently different from the original to cause no eyebrows to be raised. Besides, how many different ways can you draw a lobster?

One teensy-weensy little point to ponder.......Don't lobsters, as a rule, live on the seabed? I mean, I imagine they're capable of some sort of open water propulsion, but they're not noted for their streamlined, aquadynamic profile.

Unless this one's just been chucked back in from a fishing boat.

An Aura+ from me.

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

I think it is fine.  You put alot of work to make it your own.  But to avoid the question in future works keep in mind it is easy to change small things.  In this picture it would have been easy to change the position of claws or the flow/position of the antanae.  (I give this advice but readily admit I don't always follow it myself)   undecided

Tharoc, I think you could it see not as a Lopstere right in its natural environement dumpling somewhere in the sand half hidden with others around also, but as a Santharian  artists depiction of this animal who wants to show his audience how exactly it looks like. It is more like the god of all  lopsteres, as perfect and beautiful as a lopstere can be. Though it is not one of her beasts, I could imagine it on a mural of a Baveras' temple, as a picture in the Great library etc..

I agree, Ta'lia. I was merely trying to play 'Devils Advocate' with Judy  ;)
