Cycle Hydra by K4ll0 Cycle Hydra by K4ll0
A hydra during the Cycle. The skin gradually gets whiter as it regenerates, so this is like right in the middle of the Cycle. Though at this point they wouldn't be able to stand up since they'd feel really weak and would be busy puking their guts out. Quite literally, that kind of happens when their viscera regenerate. The whole Cycle process is also really messy, the skin peels off and sticks everywhere.

ew why do I make up disgusting stuff and why do I enjoy it so much.

What an intimidating stare she has. I like the idea of these creatures having a messy cycle that makes them weak.
Actually it reminds me of a certain something certain humans have to deal with every month.

whats the point of the parts on the elbow they look like useless muscle and bone that just gets in the way
it would make sense if they where an aggressive warrior race then it could be a hardened bone structure that could be used to block stuff 
but as they are a peaceful race please explain

Their very, very early ancestors used them as kind of shields when fighting. They're a very docile race nowadays but that hasn't always been the case. 

I'm planning to scale them down though, movement-wise they don't get in the way that much but they're a bit annoying when designing clothes or armor.

Insane. Love the detail work on the skin and eyes. Looks alien, feels alien, and has a sort of mysterious beauty to it.

Awesome work.

The blurbs about the species are fascinating, and I love how you don't just make them a pretty, perfect species. There's a nasty side that has a legitimate purpose in an obviously alien and complicated lifecycle, and they have natural weaknesses that aren't just dramatic but also gritty and have a purpose. I'd love to see these guys used in a futuristic space exploration game or something similar.

Thanks~ I love everything kind of supernatural but I always need a 'realistic' reason for it, general vampires don't really do it for me :P
