Strepsistra by Scaley-Randy Strepsistra by Scaley-Randy
A commission by :iconawfulowafalo: of my own kaiju based on the male Strepsiptera.

For those who don't know, the Strepsiptera or "twisted wing parasite" is a parasite that lives within a variety of insects. The females remain within hosts, releasing pheromones to attract males. Males live up to five hours and solely exist to mate with the female. Once the larva grow large enough, they eat their mother from the inside out and are released through her "brood canal" in order to find new hosts.

Hey! I'm a new EDM artist and I was wondering if you would be willing to do a commission for an album cover. It would have to be a large resolution picture. For more details email me at chadgarside@icloud.com it would mean the world to me!

As I have stated before, this is not my work, this was drawn by :iconawfulowafalo: and you may contact him if you like this picture and would like to commission something similar to it.

I've been doing fine, mostly job hunting, going to college and writing (was writing for SCP but now I've gotten into some writing contests at Inkitt).

very cool, you'll have to send me the links to your SCPs, I'd love to write for that but I don't think I can do it justice.

Yeah funny thing, I have yet to post any successful SCPs (all of them are still in my sandbox), it's a vigorous process of coming up with an idea, drafting it, begging people to review it, rewriting it, getting more reviews for it, and then hoping at some point it meets everyone's standards enough to be posted and get over 10 positive votes :P
