Another image for a science fantasy project. Idea in this case is that an ancient terrestrial civilization abandoned Earth and migrated to Mars on their way out of the solar system. They left their most powerful machines and scientific knowledge in vast pyramidal repositories (which may or may not be the Cydonia "artifacts"--I haven't decided yet). These huge, artificial organisms were left to guard the temples of the vanished civilization, awaking from a millions-years hibernation when humans disturb their rest... I pictured the advanced prehistoric culture as adept at genetic engineering, perhaps even responsible for manipulating the evolution of life on Earth, so I wanted this creature to convey a mix of phyletic traits. Lack of eyes is always spooky, of course; I wanted this one to look a little Lovecraftian.
