a thing by aozorize a thing by aozorize
idk, you decide what it is.

At first I was like "those vestigial legs are stupid and useless" but now that I think about it, this guy can use them to kick people in the ribs if someone ever attempts to ride him.

Epic bug horse moray eel...? Love your way of subtly bringing out the muscles and making up explanations.

As my first thought is 'WOW I'D LOVE TO RIDE THAT'

A kick to the ribs destroyed that thought.

I really like his face/head a lot, he's got a lot of personality.

I have missed your art entirely too much.

And I approve of vestigial legs. It is in their nature to be useless and yet look super cool. 8)
