I'm extreemly fond of all of these. I love the flipper like appendages on the bottom sketch, but the top sketch I think has the most successful integration of the heads into the body. Overall these are just fantastic, each in their own way ^.^

This is probably the best Leviathan depiction I've seen yet, to my preference at least. Plenty of artists just go with a giant fish or sea-dragon, but I really like how you pushed its more monstrous, mythological nature. This is truly a monster I can say is of such a epic scale that it lives up to its biblical, mysterious reputation.

Great work. =)

Holy Moly. I guess the Bible really is a great source of inspiration.

Great Job on this and the Behemoth. Will there be a Ziz to go along with them?

You should definitely do the beasts from Daniel. I just wondering how you'd do the last one.

I agree, the third one (towards the bottom) looks more animalistic. I also like the black and white sketch at the bottom. Nicely colored and richley detailed. Reminds me of the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld.

The third one looks the most convincing. The other two look needlessly complicated - the last one looks like something that could actually have evolved into that form.

The first one also fits the description of the monster based on the mythology about it. It's not supposed to resemble a potentially naturally occurring creature, or even look elegant, because the whole concept of the Leviathan is that it's a physical representation and embodiment of everything chaotic, vile, and opposed to nature, in stark contrast to stability and harmony with the natural order of the world. That's what makes it such a monster, both in the myths and in this picture.

I was pushing for the last, but my client says he likes the first one as its the ugliest.

There's a certain logic in that I guess, when you're going for a monster.

Some wild concepts for the leviathan, Im still trying to settle on a design for mine to go along with my Behemoth picture.

I'll get around to it eventually, I keep getting different ideas about how I think it should look. I gotta settle on one so my Behemoth will no longer be lonely.
