Correct me if I'm wrong but -- isn't that a Ningen? And the "What the hell did we hit? A whale?"
was based on the exact experience with the creature?

Amazing! It's a ningen, right? It's said, they live in the waters near New Zealand and Antarctica... Wonderful and majestic cryptids! Is that a wound near the neck? Looks like blood...

A white whale-like humanoid cryptid living near Antarctica and New Zealand.

The ningen was spotted by japanese fishers.

Maybe an unknown pentadactyl tetrapod. Perhaps a mammal.

We know, that this creature was spotted by japanese "whale research" boates.

Of, course, it would be possible, that they were whalers and not really researchers.

In the japanese mythology exists lots of spirits for nearly everything... Bakabake-san, Karakasa-obake, Chochin-obake...

So... what about giant humanoid whale spirits, which want to say:"Stop whaling, idiots!!!"

Yeah... why not?

I am guided by the silhouette, and because he found similar with the mysterious creatures called ningens, but the idea of ​​a giant jellyfish was not ignored at first. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yanno, I've been watching your stuff for ages,  I really dig your creature designs and opaque painterly style,but this particular image is fantastic. It made me double-take and gives me a really skin-crawly sinking feeling. Great job : D
