Edimmu by yigitkoroglu Edimmu by yigitkoroglu
This is a character concept i designed for the ArtStation's challenge , " Ancient Civilization : Lost and Found " .
You can find more about my entry here : www.artstation.com/contests/an…

I used Sumerian Myths as my reference for my concepts.
Edimmu: They were envisioned as the spirits of those who were not buried properly. They were considered vengeful toward the living and might possess people.They were thought to cause disease and inspire criminal behavior in the living.

I just made it up, didnt make him look like a hydralisk intentionally.. most of the sumerian demon reliefs i found as references were looking like humans except their feet..
btw, hydralisk, as a monster design is way too cool :)

Ah, sure i shouldve told that , Edimmus were demons which were feeding on the corpses who were not buried properly and without a ceremony and a ritual. So they consume these corpses and they become a part of Edimmus and make them stronger.
