Bento concept by velvetcat Bento concept by velvetcat
Hey everyone :)

Meet Bento! A cute little creature who would probably tear you to shreds ^^

A little bit about Bento:

You will most likely find Bentos hiding deep in swamps. They have extremely long legs, when crouched, they're about 2 meters tall, and when they stretch out, their height can reach up to 4 meters, sometimes up to 6.

Bentos are perfect jumpers and swimmers, yet they're not so good runners.
In swampy water, Bentos move around perfectly, usually they can reach the bottom with their feet, and still are able to peek their head from the water. Long legs allow them to swim easily, and huge feet allow them to easily walk in muddy soft ground.

If anyone's interested, here's the very first doodle of this concept, just an idea how it should look like when crouched and stretched out [link]

Hope you like it! :la:

don't worry, it's completely fine to think that monsters are cute. I should know, I create them :lol:
Or maybe it's not fine and I'm just crazy. who knows

either way, thank you :D

Whoa... I got here looking through pictures of bento lunch boxes. xD This was a bit of a shock. Cool though; reminds me of Silent Hill.

interesting swamp creature.
how does his mouth and claws work?

thank you :heart:
Claws are pretty useless for him.
And mouth, well, haven't really thought how it works, but I guess there's nothing too much interesting about it. He's got no teeth though, so the only way to kinda chew the meat is to use his front fangs for it, to tear the meat and then just swallow the bits.

I love your work, what was your inspiration for this piece? i know some artist when drawing weird creatures get their inspirations from random things in their surroundings. Unless your imagination just runs wild! :)

hey thanks!
I guess my imagination was wild at that moment, no special inspiration.. I just started playing with colours and shapes and saw a nice figure, later made some doodles and started colouring :D

Originalu. Tikrai nereiktu prieraso Velvetcat, kad suprasti kieno darbas. Cia labai geras pozymis. :)

oi aciu labai :hug:

smagu kad patinka :) su tom kojom tiesa pasakius ir man truputi neaisku, nu ideja yra priesinga negu visi isivaizduoja vaiksciojima smeliu, jis turetu "smigti" i smeli ir dumbla, galbut ismigti iki kelieniu, kadangi jo kojos labai stiprios, jis pajegia keldamas kojas juo bristi, todel paskui save jis paliktu labai gilia vaga. nu cia tokia ideja, galima aisku ji priskirti tik vandeniui, ir kad smeliu blogai vaikscioja :D
aciu labai dar karta :blushes:
