'It can saunter on land and camouflage like any other tisso, but its true talent shines in water. Compact, hair-triggered, aquatic sentient knife of a fisher.  It's become a powerful specialist swimmer, being able to utilize a divided spine for sail control enabling it to switch between speed and stability. 
Every aspect of its jaws are needle-like, from teeth to chin, it will lunge, swipe or slap to take targets down. So unless you're armoured or big enough, enter waters at you're own risk. '

This is the last tissoplastic strain I'll be designing. at least till the reformatted one gets an official reveale.
While that's up in the air though I have another isle themed project on it's way. 
Teaser coming soon.

Lovely and terrifying. The spines remind me of a Siamese Fighting Fish's fins.

I hope this one becomes the tisso spino, even after the "tisso being redone" thing. Your concept art is amazing

Imagine one of these guys NYOOM-ing at you when you go to take a drink.

I would spend hours going for this.

You are one of the best artists working on the isle
I like how you create artwork for the undeveloped strains

Them being undeveloped creatures has been a big part of the fun/chalange, trying to come up with designs off a rough concept. Glad you’re enjoying them.

   If I was a worth while mod creator, I would totally make all of your concepts into Ark modded dinos. With permission of course. I could see this one being an awesome water specialized Spino with faster swim speed and super sharp turn radius in the water. That sail would fold back when mobile and fan out for those turns.

   Truly professional grade work from this and your gallery as a whole. Just thinking about how these designs would look in a game spikes my imagination. :D
