Cloverfield Monster v2 by Ra88 Cloverfield Monster v2 by Ra88
Felt inspired by the marketing of Cloverfield to do this little piece. VERY happy with it myself. :)

Download for highres goodness! It's worth it! :D

Oh, I pulled the SoL and Woolworth pictures from Google, and then used references from the trailers and other clips to come to calculate it's size, which should be somewhere near what's in the image.

Also, the Mr. Grumpy Pants bit is the nickname that was given to it by the guys of Unfiction: [link] while The Parasite is the first name we've heard of it.

UPDATE- Since it's hard to see in the non-highres version: here are the notes on the creature.

MONSTER NOTES
The Monster, aka The Parasite / Mister Grumpy Pants
Notable features:
-Acquatic creature (covered with algeas, seaweed, ocean life (barnacles, seastars, crustaceans), whale/squid/crustacean hybrid (assimilated other creatures?)
-Lower jaw splits in half like a snake, revealing dozens of “tongues” that, when used all at once, can tear down small buildings or create giant exploding fireballs by mixing gas with the napalm from special glands
-Rapid healing abilities, making it virtually indestructible
-Has some kind of hivemind with the smaller, fully grown parasites
-Is very intelligent, it learns quickly (as demonstrated in army tactics that proved to be ineffective after being used once or twice depending on the damage and complexity)
-The arms have 6 claws each: Three small ones on a articulated hand and three large rigid ones

"Tongues" (feelers with eyes, claws and napalmglands)

In the movie they were trying to for a monster that looked and acted like a lost  baby in a foreign environment.  That's clearly not what ra88 was going for.  This would be cool for a sequel though.

OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS JUST FANTASTIC.

I was just at Cracked and this was in an article there about fanworks superior to the actual product; I saw this in their bit about the Cloverfield monster and I just HAD to take a look!

The design here, it's just gloriously amazing; extremely well-done! :D It genuinely looks like something from the deep sea. Excellent work!

Cracked sent me here, and I agree with them on that this is a far BETTER design for the monster than what the movie showed.

Hat's off to you, my friend.

It's weird how some of your pictures are amazingly detailed and others seem rather simple. I think that you are totally capable of making all your pictures heavily detailed and awesome.

Well, that's because I put different amounts of effort into the various pics. Some are simple sketches, others are more detailed pieces, with even more inbetween that.
