Has anyone considered that the creature has just become injured recently by something in the darkness and he is nursing his left hand as he remains cautious to the stranger  that now wants to help him?  That's what I see in this picture.

My compliments on the detail and the imaginative quality alike.

What does that left arm motion mean? It looks like it was moving so quickly there... and you capture slow motion effect well. But what about that? :?

Hey! Fantastic piece. 
I noticed that it is under a partially restricted creative commons license, and I just thought that I'd let you know that I would love to use it as a cover for a story I plan on posting(with your credits attached of course!). Just wished to let you know!
Once again, excellent work!!

The values and lighting are really great, his hand seems a little too delicate for the rest of his figure though.. but that's just my opinion.

Why don't you try some maturity and show some respect to both the artist and the public who has to read your puerile question.

It's a little over-defensive for the subject that you can't even be sure about... And according the creator of this image - jameszapata , he stated:

I'm an adult, not a kid, and I just put a question out of curiosity,and because that is one of the things I see when I look at this picture, many people have different interpretations of art. I'm not trying to laugh or disrespect the artist. Thanks for blocking me mg1342mg.deviantart.com/ talk about maturity

:iconeev11:
eev11 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Doesn't mean it's not disrespectful! Do you seriously think he intended to make it look like a masturbating monster? Don't be so ignorant please.. Also, i didn't block you but the other guy did and I think he was probably right to do so since you're not taking someone's art serious.

There is no disrespect here. The man asked a question, there is a blur effect on the left arm that makes it look like its in motion, and the position also makes it look like hes masturbating. 
If that is NOT what the artist is going for or had no intention of it looking like that and a viewer notices it, shouldn't that be observational critique, or at the very least, just personal observation?

He didnt say anything demeaning or disrespectful he asked a question. eev11 and mg1342mg, you need to relax and realize art can look different to anyone.

Still.. it's a little immature to just assume that the artist meant to paint him like he is masturbating, let's be honest, that doesn't seem very likely.

It's not immature at all. It looks like he's jacking off. Maybe he isn't. End of story.

So, artists can't be immature? Also, on that note since when is masturbating immature? I'm a grown woman and I love doing it. I also enjoy drawing sex. OOooOOOoOooo
