There was a time that we feared it, when our little town spent every day wondering when the terror would strike again. It seemed to attack without warning, and no matter how hard we fought or how securely we locked ourselves away, it would always take our lives and limbs. We bought hunters, begged heroes, but none ever succeeded in killing it. It was creature that rivaled the gods, where wounds healed within minutes, and every lopped off part grew back stronger than before. By the time we realized its power and the futility of our actions, it had a dozen heads, each capable of unstoppable death and destruction. At that point, the heroes stopped coming to our aid, and even the mercenaries would turn down our coin. It was a beast that couldn't be killed, so we were forced to suffer for all time. Or so we thought...
The day we spotted that wretched slithering thing in the valley, we thought that the gods had finally decided to finish us off. Bad enough we had to live under the cruel fangs of the multi-headed terror, but now another monstrosity was coming to feed on our souls. Weapons were taken up, barricades were erected, but the attack never came. Instead, our watchers spoke of this foul slithering creature heading towards the lair of our destructor. Was this abomination a partner or ally to our foe? Or perhaps it was a beast that sought to claim our town as its own. We did not know, and all we could do was watch. Everyone saw it vanish into the dark cavern, and soon the sound of violence and battle shook the land. The noises were terrifying, and we fled to our homes to cower in fear. But it wasn't long after that the cacophony died down, and the world returned to silence. The battle must have ended, and one side was now dead. We couldn't tell who had won the day, but we knew the answer would soon become apparent. If our original terror won, it would soon make a visit to feed on our livestock and townsfolk. If the other won, no doubt it would come to survey its new domain, and probably grab a bite to eat. So we waited...but that day never came. Much to our surprise and confusion, no monstrosity came to ravage us. Weeks passed by without incident, and yet we all shivered with the thought that this calm would have to end. Weeks turned to months, and at last we gained the courage to see what had happened.
A band of reluctant warriors at last delved into the lair of the beast, to see what had become of the terror. People worried that this would only result in death, that it would awaken the monster and shatter the peace we had finally gained. However, we could not rest easy until we knew the answer, so we risked it. It didn't take long to find it, as the warriors discovered that our monstrosity was still alive. The first assumption was that it won its battle with the odd slithering intruder, but this was soon found to be false. The bizarre beast still lived, but it was faring far better than our many-headed destructor. A long tail covered in foul hooks bound our reptilian terror, constricted so tightly that it ate through the skin and left weeping raw wounds. Claws sunk themselves into the hide, and barbed spines ensured the slithering creature would never be dislodged. The many heads that once snapped and spat like vipers sprawled pathetically on the stony floor, their necks and skulls wrapped in hungering tendrils. These horrid appendages burrowed deep into the flesh, siphoning blood and digested meat from its prisoner. The many heads were dull and emaciated, save for a few that looked fresh and whole. The answer to why these few remained healthy became apparent when one tendril released its imprisoned head. This freed viper was sickly and withered, like a dead plant shriveling in the hot sun. It seemed its juices had run dry, and the tendril had nothing more to gain. It was then one of the scissor-like claws lashed out and decapitated the pathetic thing in one snip. The crumbling head rolled free, and the newly made stump on the body boiled with activity. Within seconds, another head burst from the wound, one that was healthy and full. The moment it emerged, the tendril whipped back into place and secured its new prisoner. It seemed the regeneration that made this beast immortal also made it the perfect fountain for a hungering leech. Its abilities kept it alive, but perhaps this was now a curse. The parasite kept it weak and emaciated, unable to fight back or free itself. Yet its powers would never let it fall to the mercy of death, and perhaps the parasite knew how to keep it this way. It now had unlimited food, and it would not let this bounty dry up.
With this horrid sight beheld, the warriors fled and left the two beasts to their fate. To this day, no terror has come to our homes, and our town now knows peace. So much time has passed, that the monstrosity that once haunted us feels like a memory, one that is quickly fading. But there are always the time we glance back at that dark cavern, and think about what suffers in there. Do we feel pity for the creature that tortured us for so long? Perhaps, but a part of us thinks more of the beast that imprisons it. Why did it come to our land at such a time? How did it find us? Will there be a day when its feast finally ends? And if so, what will it eat next?
It has been a good long time since I first introduced this concept, but after all of that I finally made another Anti-Myth Monster. The idea behind this beast, and others of its like, is that these organisms are specialized counters to specific mythical creatures. The more alien and ridiculous looking, the better! As been mentioned before, this fella is meant to parasitize hydras, finding an infinite food supply in a beast that can regenerate at lightning speeds.

My younger sister just put up a picture of my favorite doll on her snapchat. And I don't like that she is the only one
So meet Sinqis!
I have been taking care of her for almost ten years now
For the record.
The teeth are made from polymer clay.
The reason her eyes sometimes glow red is because they reflect light in a weird way.
The metallic smell is because of the rusted iron in her bones.
And the red-brownish gunk between her teeth is just.... I honestly dont know...
Copper Dragons are native to Tygidae and are an arboreal species of dragon. Catching a glimpse of them in the treetops is difficult with their natural camouflage.
They have the ability to spit acid as well as an amber sap that slows down would-be attackers.
Copper Dragons are not a predatory species of dragon, but they are still fearsome creatures to fight should you provoke one.

Creatures... they do... things......
[ID: A four panel coloured comic. Vera, a light-skinned woman with purple hair, grey eyes, black long-sleeves and pants, and latex gloves, is standing under a lightbulb lit room. She is speaking to the reader.
Vera, looking up: “Man, creatures look at others, and they just think...”
Vera, excitedly, with her cleaver in hand: “What is goin’ on in their heads?”
Vera, dead-pan as she clasps her cleaver: “Me.”
The final panel zooms out to the room, showing her row of blades hanging on the wall and a bed with a blue tarp to her left, and to her right a board with photos connected by a red string and a drawer.
Vera, standing menacingly: “I am creature.”

Name: David Anderson
Age: 47 yrs
Weight: 700 lbs
Abilities: Animal physiology (Enhanced strength, durability, healing, senses, etc)
This dangerous chimera was formerly a butcher in Manhattan. He likely was working with raw pig during his exposure to the chimera virus, leading to his particular hybridization.
The process of mutation and the overwhelming animalistic instincts greatly exacerbated a number of prexisting and untreated underlying phycological issues, leading to his "breaking point".
Suinae has become a highly dangerous serial cannibal, with estimates on the number of chimeras he's butchered being 11 or more.
One of the larger and heavier Chimeras, Suinae's bulk grants him tremendous strength and durability comparable to Reptilla himself. He is notable slower and less agile than the hero however, but makes up for it with the bloodlusted nature of his attacks.
Rather than punching or biting, Suinae wields dual meat cleavers for butchering people and chimeras alike. His cannibalistic tendencies spurs him to regularly abduct and murder others.

Bloomlight by Vouw
Inspired by the mesmerizing motion of grass in the wind as well as the issue of light pollution, Bloomlight will be a series of lanterns that respond to the passersbys like an organic creature. The dark lanterns curiously bend toward approaching visitors and unfurl a bloom of soft light. As visitors walk away, Bloomlight returns to its original position and goes dark once more.
Bloomlight, which is activated by nearby movement, works through a series of both low- and high-tech components. The light’s base—or stem—is made out of a very tall, bendable central tube. Six steel wires that run over the 14-foot-tall light are connected to stepper motors, which then pull the wires and cause the structure to bend.
But the lamp doesn’t just bend. It also blooms. The lamp head, made out of painted wooden slats connected by fabric, are connected to the motor, too. When it’s activated, a 3D-printed mechanism in the lamp begins to turn and pushes the slats open.
This is all triggered when a LiDAR sensor—a kind of laser technology also used by self-driving cars—detects people walking by. That triggers the motor, which causes the lamp to bend toward the person and the lamp shade to open up and “bloom.”
