During this stage I played around with the colours and tones for my character.

Next, I cleaned up the overall line work and added in a base colour. I also added more detail to the face, using the provided photos of Ace Ruele as a guide for the facial features but exaggerating some facial features such as the cheekbones, chin and mouth to make the character look more monster-like (with the assumption that if an actor were to play this part, facial prosthetics may be used).

During this stage, I developed my concept for the creature further. I decided to go with a more humanoid base form, keeping in mind that the part would need to be played by an actor, as specified in the brief. From my initial sketches, I selected two poses I liked the most (top right and bottom right sketches in my first post) and developed those, using reference photos to refine my initial concepts in more detail. 

I was interested in designing a creature that could alternate between being bipedal and quadrupedal, and which had additional and/or multi-purpose limbs. My monster can either walk on four limbs (knuckle-walking like a gorilla), or walk on its two hind legs (if the front forearms are required for doing something else). The large crab-like claws function as both a weapon to defend itself, as well as serves as an extra pair of limbs which allow the monster to scuttle along on six limbs.

My initial design sketches. At this stage I am just roughly blocking out shapes and poses that I find interesting.
