Refined Creature Concept by merbel Refined Creature Concept by merbel
I used my lunch breaks to refine my older creature concept merbel.deviantart.com/art/Roug… for both practice and fun :). Hope you all like.

I keep assuming the sphere is the front, but I realize I have no basis to go on.

It's an impressive character design !
I can't tell where the creates front or back is and that makes it so interesting.
Moreover I like the Details of ist carapace and the unusual colour.
Well done!

I have seen a lot of creature concepts lately, but this one must be my favorite so far.
Absolutely stunning!

Looks really neat, at first I couldn't tell what was the front and back of the creature, which sorta makes it confusing. I think concept wise, it's pretty decent.

I really like the angle you chose for this composition. It really helps describe the creatures size. Also, the rocks are absolutely gorgeous.

Very good, it's fresh and I also get a real nostalgic Tyranid or maybe Aliens vibe from it.

this kinda reminds me of the Tyranids from Warhammer 40k... possible inspiration?

I tried some different color schemes, but this Tyranid inspired one, felt best :). The creature design itself was not inspired by Tyranids in particular, though.

Thanks! It would be awesome as a prop. Something to put in your garden to scare off the neighbors ;).

lol!  My plan was to make a bunch of them in different positions and leave them in a forest, high up in the trees where people couldn't get to them.  Maybe hang some weird cocoon looking things and such :)
