Gigantocephalopodes irradiatus by Eclectixx Gigantocephalopodes irradiatus by Eclectixx
Gigantocephalopodes irradiatus is thought to have mutated from the common octopus, Octopus vulgaris, as the result of a mixture of leaked petrochemicals, toxic dispersants, and radioactive waste being dumped into the Gulf of Mexico. Although a BP spokeman did not deny the well-established toxicity of the dispersants used to clean the petrol spill, he did emphatically deny that the amounts used could possibly cause this sort of terratogenic mutation alone. BP officials also denied all responsibility for the radioactive waste, citing the recently uncovered scandal involving the State of Texas dumping barrels of the waste into the gulf in a cost-saving measure. Scientists may never understand the exact combination which led to this monstrous mutation, but according to United States Coast Guard Admiral Harry Hausen, "Who gives a damn where the bastard came from; how the (expletive) do we kill the som'bitch?"

Brillant picture. The sense of scale is magnificent - something often misportrayed.

I am apparently becoming quite the fan of your work.  I also adore the shoggoth, and will be going through your other works.  I may need to buy a copy of this one though.  It makes me happy.

Probably been mentioned, but this is what I pictured a clear shot of the creatures would look like from Gareth Edwards' 'MONSTERS' film. Which I really enjoyed.

Thanks! As I said in another comment, the "head" area of the creature is filled with lighter-than-air gasses, so it is sort of half-floating, skimming along the reef. At least that was what I had in mind when I made it.

This is the Florida Keys Highway, and the water is only about 15 feet deep under the bridge. Also, the "head" area of the creature is filled with lighter-than-air gasses, so it is sort of half-floating, skimming along the reef.

:iconkollateralschaden:
Kollateralschaden Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012
So, to kill it, we just have to shoot at its head, so that the gasses leave and it can't walk anymore. Sounds easy enough :D

Only problem is those gasses are radioactive! We'd have another Chernobyl on our hands!

So how does he keep his head in the air like that, cuz he's kind of walking like a spider on small legs. Just wondering, cuz octapus tend to crawl/slither close to the ground.

A large portion of his "head" area is filled with lighter-than-air gasses (which is why it looks sort of like a translucent balloon in back).
