Concept 'Phorcys' Picture

Phorcys from Greek Mythology
He's a primordial sea god and fathered the Phorcydes (Medusa the Gorgon among others). According to the texts I've read, he's considered a merman, but I personally thought half man and half lobster sounded like a better representation (he is mentioned to have crablike claws) and went with that idea.

This was for a concept art contest involving mythological creatures.
