Hi! I just searched in and found this gallery: osmatar.deviantart.com/gallery…
I never heard of it before. Is there some compilation of artist works on the subject?
Thanks!

I just googled it, and the main site appears to have just disappeared unfortunately, along with a lot of the original artworks....the reason I brought it up was because one of the lineages of creatures in Spec were giant, ocean-going platypus relatives that looked a lot like your painting.

Thank you so much for the mention!
That creature was a weird idea of mine, as if I dreamed of it at some point. I may do a better version with reference one day.
It comes from my old child interest for prehistoric creatures and evolution in general.

No, but I read the description. Sounds interesting! Thanks for the hint, man, I put the title in the description in the deviation, to remember it :nod:
There is a very good book I read a while ago, from Robert Silverberg (Face of the Waters) [link] about a strange waterworld. 'twas so cool!!

This is a nice beat and a nice drawing ;) One comment about the eyes, I think that they are supposed to be more on the sides. Just my opinion...

A "platypus" is the weird creature of the shape of the mole, but with skinned paws and duck bill, that lives in Oceania.
