Rhizoma by triatholisk Rhizoma by triatholisk
Rhizoma is a Latin word for a certain root. the Rhizoma is a mute creature that can be found at the edge of dense forests watching the sunset. once the sun sets it lurks the dark forests unseen searching for blood. the Rhizoma mostly stands still and lifeless like a tree until you turn your back. when it gets close enough it uses its roots to grow into your skin and deep into your veins and absorb your fluids from the inside out. no one has ever spotted the Rhizoma during the morning. it is believed that it burrows and divides into the ground as ordinary roots during the morning and waits for sunset to reform. there have been stories however of this creature sneaking into unsuspecting peoples houses near the woods and absorbing small children in their sleep leaving only their clothes behind on their beds. the motive behind this creature's actions is unknown but it is known to be very dangerous.

Well, thanks. Now I'm going to have a horrific fear of creepy body fluid-drinking vines and tendrils sneaking into my room from my bedroom window to suck me dry and reduce me to an empty, disintegrating husk for the rest of my life.

Thank you for contributing to my nightmares tonight, I'm going to need to get my apocalypse emergency kit and take out the zombie-killing makeshift sledgehammer....if I can even get to it before this culmination of ultimate paralysing horror doesn't suck the lifeblood and bone marrow out of my suddenly far, far, far too squishy-looking body first :scared:

I love this work. You mixed disturbance, darkness and fear with so much beauty and deep, touching silence. Also the text as addition to the image makes it so complex. gets right into my favorites ;)

Yahweh, Jehovah, and Allah, this is one creepy monster here! I mean, seriously, I can't focus on her porcelain mask there without a little tingle running down my spine. Heck, I just checked to make certain my crucifix and dream catcher are still on the walls, just in case - that's how excellent your piece is here. It made me momentarily superstitious! =P

Anyhow, great design on the monster - the avian aspect really stands out, and, I don't know why, but they actually make this piece creepier. Perhaps its the inhuman proportions, perhaps its because it's so human the avian aspects jar the mind. Add that the the dark and decayed atmosphere, and well, you've got yourself a work of grade-A nightmare fuel right here!

Excellent job, triatholisk! Keep up the fantastic work! =D

this looks amazing and very creepy too :D i like how it has a mixture pf root and birdlike appearance :D and the description sounds interesting as always :D man i really wish you were one of the creature designers for silent hill. The monster designs in silent hill downpour were so disappointing :/
anyways if you still play any silent hill games, i heard that the guy who created metal gear was asked to be involved in the next silent hill game :D maybe this will restore the franchise from its former glory :D at least i hope so..anyways amazing job as always, sorry for the long comment ^^;
