Many of Bizantium’s ships, particularly lightly armed merchants, are accustomed to moving in convoys to help protect themselves against threats. Most sea monsters avoid attacking “fleets” of ships, even if they have intruded on their territory and hunting grounds. While sea serpents are generally aggressive and will attack anyone or anything they believe to be edible, instinctual behavior warns them to avoid groups of sailing ships. Known to the ancient Eoten as the “Changer of Currents” or “Bringer of Storms”, the Jormund Serpent is one of the rarest sea serpents in the world. These animals are simply huge, sometimes measuring over 400 feet (122 m) long and weighing 100-400 tons! Their massive heads are the size of fishing boats, their maws filled with two-foot (0.6 m) long, viciously pointed teeth.
Jormund Serpents are not terribly intelligent animals, and are big enough that they tend to ignore lone humanoids in the water, but are extremely territorial when it comes to other sea serpents, large sea creatures, and ships. They eat virtually anything that lives in the water, but prefer sizable prey like whales, large seals, giant squid and sea serpents smaller than themselves. Jormund Serpents also seem to know when a ship is damaged and crippled or slowly sinking, and sometimes follow such ships for days, or even weeks, believing them to be injured prey and vulnerable. If such a vessel sinks or begins to sink, the Jormund will capsize lifeboats and gobble down any sailors in the water; sometimes eating the entire boat and all.
What did you do it with?
Amazing art bro!
Seems some people are enjoying this one more than I anticipated!!! XD
I wonder why?
He is so going to be in the next trip to the Northern Ocean!!
I want details on your adventure.... man do I feel sorry for the Players,....sometimes, snicker.
BTW, the lower jaw tusks were to slash open prey species or underneath or the sides of ship hulls as they swim by them. Similar o a large wild boar's tusks only much larger and underwater with a sabers. Just picturing a capsized boat and you see those fins swim by and then realize that one of the sailors has a pool of blood pouring from him as they have been slashed open to bleed out.
fantasy heavy, yet still very grounded in real biology
it reminds me of arvalis's creture designs
keep it up
RJ Palmer's work is wonderful and I enjoy his work as well! So flattering to be compared to his masterpieces.
