Crustacids by Vincent-Covielloart Crustacids by Vincent-Covielloart

Crustacids are a communal race of aquatic beings. 
Considered primitive by many other aquatic and land races alike the Crustacids, at one point, were actively enslaved. Their young even sold into the pet trade. 
Yet the Crustacids were eventually emancipate, to a large extent, and managed to position themselves as an asset of trade between land and sea with the unique ability to navigate both terrains.  

While not equipped with a verbal language of their own they have adopted the languages of various races they’ve interacted with. Communication was primarily spoken through body language and subliminal signaling of their antenna. Another unique form of communication is their intricate carapace designs. Each one is unique and elaborately explains the life and lineage of said Crustacids. This tattoo will be continuously added to throughout their lives and at their death will be placed within the communal burial grounds.

...nice crab.

I really like the way of coloring you have here. The hints of blue and red on the grey shell gives a fleshy, organic texture.

I love your art, the only thing that bugs me sometimes is that I can't enlarge the pic to admire it on fullscreen, it's so beautiful!

The most important question is: are they edible? Hey, as long as they're not humans, it's not cannibalism!
