Therian angles by BenMauro Therian angles by BenMauro
This creature is part of a larger project that i am slowly working on, developing alien life on another planet. You can see a little bit more of the project here if you are interested.

First pass at the Therian creature, working on the detailed rendering right now figuring out the final colors and skin patterns, got hit with freelance work so might not get to the main rendering till the weekend. Also wanted to try to do a shot of a herd of these guys walking/grazing similar to some of the other shots i was working on. One nearly down, 9 or so more to go!

I'm trying to tie all of these guys together some how, like maybe most of the creatures don't have eyes or see the world with some form of sonar? So this creature would act more like a prey animal with eyes on the sides of his head. So the large flat planes on his front sides emit sonar left and right from some internal organ (or maybe the petal form on his back emits the pulse and the head area picks up the signal?), whereas the HH creature acts more like a predator with eyes in front of its face emitting sonar forward. I imagine this guy eating more like an ant eater, some long weird tongue coming out the front to eat plant life in the area.

they don't seem very stable standing up. it seems like a small breeze to the broadside would tip this thing over

Nice! Though I feel like a gust of wind coming from the side would be his greatest enemy.... I see it flop on the side and unable to do anything from there...

Assuming its rigid. If it bends, it would be fine.

I guess... it would need to be hella soft though.

It is a very flexible creature, think of the head/tail areas moving something like a moray eel.

Some dinosaurs were much more frail/tall/skinny than this form and they did fine for many years. ;)

Really? *fast googling* Oh yeah you're right! I still like the idea of seeing an impressive and humongous creature being defeated by a gust of wind...
