Leviathan: Destroyer of Ships by vancleavej Leviathan: Destroyer of Ships by vancleavej
At first I wanted to create the Leviathan, an enormous sea serpent said to attack ships. I loved the myth, and the creature's name sounded both mysterious and powerful. With more research and creativity I came up with the title, which lead me to question the definition of "ships". Combined with my ongoing concept of the evolution of technology and life, I have re-conceptualized and recreated the less well-known mythical creature, the Leviathan.

Not at all! I'm flattered that you liked it enough to do so, and I thank you! I should let you know that now that the contest is over I am actually revisiting my design. I didn't want to tell anybody until it was done, but I did the whole thing the night before and submitted it in the last 10 minutes that the contest was open for submissions, haha. There are a lot of minor things I am improving on it now.

This is a fun and eye-catching new interpretation of an old monster. It looks like something I'd expect to see on the box art for an old video game. Nice work.

Thanks a lot! I am definitely influenced by geeky graphic novel and video game art!

Thanks! I'm not sure. They still haven't chosen the semi-finalists for this or the previous contest. It will be a while yet, I assume.

Yes, you're right. I occasionally misspell compound nouns. Oops.

That is certainly a clever and original take on the idea of mythology and the Leviathan! I love it!
