For my House of Sand project, I wanted to design a new kind of Locust warbeast, something like a hunting dog that the Locust would send to track down prey.

The first one, on the left, I called the Heckler. I imagined it to be like a hyena, also giving it fleshy flaps that fold around the face to protect it during sandstorms.

The second creature I called the Roughback. A distant relative of the Ticker creature from Gears of War 2 and 3, I imagined it would attack by charging with its spike and slashing with its claws.

I've been hesitant to comment on these cos I don't know much about Gears of War, but these guys are such CUTIES. I love the look of the wraparound face, and the other one has the sweetest horrible grin. Lovely little guys.

If I were some kind of bio-geneticist, just think of the billions of dollars in grant money I'd have used up by now trying to create these guys as real-life pets.

Someday...
