Hunt Relation

New addition for my First Contact War universe.

I imagine the "weirdness" of this creature is nothing new for this world. Had fun creating this one :XD:

After almost 4 hours of stream crawling through sketches, uninspired enough to work any of them out, I finally ended up with a hunting party hunting a beast which hit the right spot in order to continue actually making something. Lets design a creature ok?!

Things happen, I'd say. Beautiful things. Just look at that majestic beast. No words needed right?

Anyhow, I guess this is also a reminder that Gryphons are carnivores, and also hunters. (depending on the type perhaps)

Approx Time: 5 hours

"And as in uffish thought he stood
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood
And burbled as it came!"

i always like artists and fanfic writers who remember MLP is a fantasy world. so all doors are open from wacky to creepy creatures hiding beyond the borders of equestria.

I like your thinking! who doesn't love designing strange creatures and things that go bump in the night?

So is that thing completely original, or is it based on one of the many lesser known mythological creatures?
AssasinMonkey's avatar
No idea if it incidentally resembles some existing creatures, I didn't use reference as I thought this all up from imagination on the go.
ChaosDrgon's avatar
Oh it probably resembles something from somewhere I would imagine. Not that I'm saying you took it from somewhere, it's just you know what they say, "there are no new ideas". It's still a cool creature though, so nice job.

Sweet. Might end up using that design in a DnD campaign.

Not a creature you want to meet in a dark forest.

Wow! You surely made a great series with that universe.

Amazing work.

That's a genuinely original monster design, I like it.

What's this creature?
AssasinMonkey's avatar
Random beast I came up with. The idea is it's along the lines of a parasitic and/or symbiotic relationship.
The worm has the controls I suppose, but they both do get to live. The worm can maybe digest more, while the lizard provides better movement options.
It was a fun little thought I had and ended up making.
Cool.                                                                                                          Gilda

It looks like the kind of thing whichs' meat would be extremely rubbery.

I've been on the internet for too long, despair and fury stemming from nearing end of that creature almost made me cry.
Great job though, that WIP could make a great example of lighting tutorial.

Griffons are drawn to powerful and firece that does not surprise me.

I thought it was a griffonian beast of war (With armor and such), but then I saw the spears and I got confused XD
AssasinMonkey's avatar
Oh gosh, I wonder if it could actually be tamed hah. It'll surely confuse the opposition :P
