Rynyx Creature Concept Sheet

Continuing my capstone project with an updated design of one of the creatures, the Rynyx. Let me know what you think!  

It is a subterranean creature, due to it being subterranean it has completely lost it's eyes instead it uses infrared sensors, similar to a pit viper, to navigate the caverns as well as echo location. The infrared sensors can detect the bioluminescence on other members of it's species, and can serve as a method of communication for them. It also uses long limbs and quills running down it's back to sense it's surroundings. 

*I have updated the image showing it's scale and added a few more notes to the sheet

I like the creatures form-how it manages to have arms while going on all fours without creating a centaur-like pose.

ive seen your artwork and I have to say I like the design of it all. the way in how its coloured as well as the imaginative outcome of the work itself. I too am in to this style of artwork and would appreciate it if you could have a look on my page and see what you think of my work. place if you like watch my page as well as comment as it helps a lot. but again very good artwork. I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Very nice!  Although bioluminescence generally doesn't give off heat, so it may not be visible to infra red.  Perhaps if the glow is caused by another chemical reaction?

Woah, awesome concept! I especially like the hands and the arrangement of their digits, really interesting. Is there a whole between the (ehm) forefinger and middlefinger? Also the name of the species sounds very fitting.

I always appreciate when someone takes the time to put "science" in "science fiction".

what actually is it?
franeres's avatar
It's an alien concept for a project I started a little over a year ago, I just wanted to flesh out the character more and give it some more detail and thought

I really love the design. I am curious about its scale, though.
Because it seems quite large and not very "compact" I'd see it living in a damp complex system of huge caves, i guess...
