PTRILODON


(ENG) After a stressful ending of the school year came the settling down at home. As a result I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked to. It’s great to be home. Now I have time to draw anything I want; which may sound stupid but it’s something unfortunately rare during the school year. This is a concept design I did a couple of days ago. I’ve always liked creatures…

Mantis shrimp, strikes with 200/300pounds of force, They break divers fingers when they put their hands in the wrong rock.

Thanks for the comments guys.
Really interesting reference Joel. That´s a peculiar shrimp. I wasn´t even able to figure out how exactly it "strikes"... It´s really fast and there is no visible claws... Thanks again for the reference.

These are the two animals that I had in mind while doing the Ptrilodon (which happen to be called the same way in spanish):

Wow, creepy. I wonder how many people it would feed if it was caught.

Really nice, even if I wouldn't want to meet one...
