Some concept art for another project I’ve been working on. My take on a ‘sky whale’, a flying ginormous filter feeder that is native to that world.
Having a gelatinous body that acts as a giant hydrogen gas bladder, this beast roams the skies, scooping up clouds and mist to filter out the myriad of nutritious microscopic creatures. It’s dorsal sail can be deployed for passive movement with the wind currents, while it’s fin-tentacles are used for propulsion and tasting the surrounding environment. They also come in handy when needing to anchor to hard surfaces.
