Experimenting with different head bust designs. I wanted to make them different just in case i changed my mind of a rocky look from it's body. I definitely had a soft spot for big sharp teeth.

Final Silhouette Designs
Once I have chosen a final silhouette design, my next step was to concept some further sketch design for the overall appearance of the creature. I was a bit lost on what to do so took a chance to sketch random body parts. I was mostly drawn to the lizards scales and a rock like surface back.

Silhouette Exploration Concepts
Using real-life animal references, I wanted to explore the creatures overall body shape and play around with different body features. I also wanted to keep in mind how the creature is able to function while maintaining a clear body structure. Particularly, I was drawn to either sleek, muscly and claw hind legs or legs with hooves.

Monster Mashup References
A collection of reference images that I found interesting and fascinating. In addition, I wanted to challenge myself by finding different animal textures, proportions and movement to somehow create into one creature.
Small annotation notes that will help me narrow down to what I exactly want to include in my design concepts. Particularly, different elements such as spikes, scales, and big arms caught my interest as they also provide a clear silhouette.
