While space was always a place for man to explore, it would be as the maps of the old oceans were. The inky void did not prohibit life, but allowed all sorts of things to develop. Man’s first encounter with the monsters of space was Ziero, the space dragon. Attacking during the earth’s first age of kaiju, it was driven away by the combined forces of the legendary Gadashin, the hybrid Koga, and the prehistoric Ol’ Bertha. It was eventually trapped on the dark side of the moon, and kept there until the first interstellar travel of mankind, where it escaped once more and dueled with the Cosmic Owl Noctus, before being driven away into the inky depths of the space in between stars. With concussive abilities from the “gills” on its body, it can summon large clouds of sound that generate force in space. Ziero is able to force this into a slashing beam of sound as well, creating a dangerous beast that uses its own body to create dangerous weapons.

Another commission I had asked for from the almighty @c-g-ricks, I wanted to share this beauty with you all. Here, Ziero roams in the most familiar of terrains for it, that of space. As a space dragon, his biology makes little sense and emulates that of deep sea creatures to a degree. Connor did a wonderful job with him, and I’m glad that another monster of mine got a wonderful piece to show itself off. Ziero gets bonus points though, as I originally wrote him up looking at Connor’s work for inspiration.

Here’s the original bio, for those interested.

And might I say, Connor is really wonderful to work with. Clear lines of communication, various different designs to help pin down what looked right, and quite professional. I highly recommend him for those curious if they should.

“Or maybe we did something to tick off the Cosmic Owl. No idea how though. The only owl we know is Bubo, and last time I checked they weren’t related.”
