Find a bunch of sources, combine them creatively and create a fantastic sea monster! The monster has to be partially or completely underwater. You can compose your creature in any way you want.

Paint it digitally, combine parts from other animals or a combination of both. However, you can not use any other digital photo manipulations as your source. The source images should be untouched photographs.

Have a look at this Sea monsters contest on Pxleyes from 12 years ago. It was won by 'derdevil' with this picture:

If you don't know where to get started, here are some handy tutorials:

Good luck!

PS: It's very important to vote on every entry, the more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!
