Inflorescent Flagellant by snarfevs Inflorescent Flagellant by snarfevs
For Conceptart.org's creature of the week contest. Unfortunately I can't log in to CA at all atm so I may not get to enter.

The topic is 'has the traits of a flower'

Anyhow, this beastie mimics a flower to a close approximation and grabs insects with its prehensile 'tongue'. It incorporates a claw that can transport the insects between tongue and mouth into its somewhat asymmetric bauplan. About 2 hrs.

Used M@ and Linda Tso's brushes

The more I stare at this, the lovelier the colours and shading gets.

I love your creatures. It's cool how you got this one looking so wet and glossy.

Thankyou. Unfortunately I suck at drawing dry and fuzzy.
