Rynyx Creature Concept Sheet by franeres Rynyx Creature Concept Sheet by franeres
Continuing my capstone project with an updated design of one of the creatures, the Rynyx. Let me know what you think!  

It is a subterranean creature, due to it being subterranean it has completely lost it's eyes instead it uses infrared sensors, similar to a pit viper, to navigate the caverns as well as echo location. The infrared sensors can detect the bioluminescence on other members of it's species, and can serve as a method of communication for them. It also uses long limbs and quills running down it's back to sense it's surroundings.

you know this sort of feels like it would be a distant relative of the Morwin from Outlander youtu.be/0ggjvNlwIaE

Not only does the creature look amazing, it's also thoroughly thought out! I love the details you thought of, like the communication (inspired by squids perhaps? :) ) or the shape of the creature's claws. Are these designs made as a concept art for some film or animation perhaps? Or a book you might be writing? I'm curious where I can learn more about this splendid Rynyx creature! :) How does it feed? Does it hunt smaller creatures? How big is it? :D I wanna know more!

haha thank you! they are part of a student project I started over a year ago, and i am refining the designs from that project. It is called Experiment 18 at the moment, and I have no idea what it might be, it was originally a video game concept, but it's turning more into a world building project

Awesome creature, you have more of these? Pretty nice drawing

By the way, if i may make a suggestion next time could you include a human next to it soo we could get a better grip on the scale of the creature?
Otherwise awesome concept

This character's size has changed a few times, it was originally about 6 feet tall and 10 feet long, but I think I may make it slightly larger to make it more intimidating looking.  It started as a video game concept for a student project but it's becoming a world building project that could be turned into anything. I want to refine the story a bit, but right now I am largely focusing on the creatures and character designs. It's called Experiment 18, I developed 5 alien species for it, and am currently designing some more to fill out the worlds better

as much as i love your creature (commented on this before) if a creature is blinde why tf woulf it use biolights (you know what i mean) to call for mates it cant see predators... xD sorry i just reslly had to point out the flswed logic (yes ik im a cunt dont say it ;: P )

Haha it's no problem, I should have explained it better. It sees something else, it doesn't see in the traditional way. It has sensors similar to a pit viper, it can detect the bioluminescence and heat of others and can essentially see, it's more similar to the Predator from predator in what it sees. They see the world differently than the traditional way

If it is blind, how does it uses bioluminescence "for communication"?
and if it sees in inrared (and those organs therefore also can glow in infrared), it cannot be concidered as "blind" anymore, really =)

Yaaa, I should have explained it better on the board, he can "see" just not in the traditional sense, I imagined it similar to predator vision

Really fun design, I like the infrared idea, and the bioluminescence is very cool. What caught my attention first was the double claws on each toe... I once knew a kid who had a double nail on each big toe :nod: This guy doesn't look much like him though :P I like the rocky armor/spikes, and the mouth tendrils are fun. :D
