Dark Ent by Natal-ee-a Dark Ent by Natal-ee-a
Let me explain the image a bit in the form of a mythical sketch:

These ents are meant to be more of the carnivorous plants hidden in a beautiful habitat. The trick is that passing travelers or migrating foreign animals are attracted to blissful jungles full of untouched wonder, and in these areas of escape their greatest worries and concerns are all set aside. In the peaceful ‘safety’ of these Eden jungles, the hypnotically lured traveler moves in further. Eventually, they would discover a source of added fortune; a rare and delicious fruit with a strong aroma meant to draw in anything with the slightest appetite.

However, this is only a deceptive form of bait. The ents hide in plain sight in a lifeless type mode as a simple tree or mass of foliage. They’d have an extended hand disguised as branches at a reachable height from the ground of which the fruit would hang from. Once an unsuspecting victim approaches beneath the hand to get to the fruit, the hand would speedily close down on it. The ent’s body would emerge from the ground and the victim is forced into the ent’s intestine like roots reaching from the torso area. The victim is then swallowed by the many tangling vines as it’s consumed alive before the ent returns to its disguise.

If you were at all lucky enough to escape the grab, (which is very unlikely), it would sprint after you on its tangling cyclone of root legs at path clearing strength, throwing its digestive roots to bring you back like a frog’s tongue.

Freaky image, huh? Quite a false paradise with a nightmare equivalence isn't it? But just think, there are all kinds of savage and decisive predators in beautiful habitats in real life. It’s the fascinating and terrifying Earth behavior we call nature! ;D

Hope all of you like it!
