Newton's Creatures
« on: June 14, 2008, 08:20:52 am »
So I got home pretty late last night, and after a pretty hard night of drinking I came up with something pretty good I think:



The idea behind the creature is that it hunts small vermin on the ground, but it wards off predators with it's brightly colored strips on it's belly and back. From the front, this creature can really only been seen by it's body, so all predators would see is something it shouldn't be eating.

I call it the Sobaci.

I like how you actually have a reason for the wierd spine structure. I think it looks awesome.

Here's an image to give you an idea of it's frontal profile, as you can see, it's bright colors is all a predator would see, but a prey wouldn't see it's mouth until it's too late.



Hmm, just noticed the bug of the baby having no head... awesome!

Here's a better picture of it from the side.
