Bull Black Tongue by KatePfeilschiefter Bull Black Tongue by KatePfeilschiefter
The Black Tongue is an alien omnivore that navigates through scent, sound and heat. It's prehensile tongue is a deadly sense and eating organ, used for slurping up insects, plucking fruit from tall trees, and uprooting shrubs. The nostrils on the chest of the animal are used for air intake, while those on the head are for smelling.

I really love Wayne Barlowe, and I was definitely influenced by him.

Any critique is welcome.

I'm aware, I watched it when I was very young. I don't have Inferno but look forward to getting it some day. I love the abstract critters from it that I've seen online.

YES. Wayne Barlow is awesome! (I thought I saw some of his style in yours ;D)

I love the colors, their balance of contrast... The sky... And the design of the animal is Splendid.
