Shimmer

Creature design for this week's C.o.W. on ConceptART. The brief was a six legged albino speedster and this is what I came up with.

Shimmer:
Not often has an albino creature been given a name of it's own, but this record-breakingly fast yet elegant being has earned itself the nickname "Shimmer". It is called so because most of the time it's seen, it's speed and color make it little more than a shimmering light in the distant heatwaves, like a star traveling across the land. Little is known about Shimmer or it's kin, as sightings are rare and they are easily lost in sandstorms, which local tribes believe are caused by the creatures themselves.

That is freaking gorgeous. It reminds me of delicate runners like greyhounds and deer. Lovely movement, color, and anatomy. Love :happybounce:
