This week: Creature of the Week! (CROW)

The Colosseum was awash with the frenzied energy of the crowd and grew into an explosion of excitement as the immense iron gate blocking the creature's cage was raised. The five warriors in the center of the arena, although armed to the teeth, shook visibly as each resounding footstep rocked the earth. The creature stopped in front of his opponents as if appreciating his next meal and before they could react, charged with an unearthly rage that rumbled the pillars surrounding them.

Your task: Design the Racnor, Devourer of Warriors.

Going for some slimy gelatinous wormy trapper creature, armed with a stomach for painful and extended digestion (warriors only).

Did some studies for the type of renderings that will be in the final piece, let's see how much it helps xD

Actually attempting to push my visual library this time, since I have more time to dedicate to this!
Did some thumbnails after putting together some reference and playing around with shapes, then found some old books I had on animals and insects and referenced those in the refined thumbs. Any favorites? :D

Patrick Gaumond: I dig the top top left one on the last image. Armored carapace and such long legs seem to make it both robust and deadly fast!

Here's two wips!

It's late forever, I know, but since this is where I got the idea for Mr. Itchy from, I figured might as well put it here too.

One day, I'll paint fast enough to properly participate in community events....
