Tektite by aburnier Tektite by aburnier
EDIT: added secondary lighting to accentuate form more. It was looking too flat for my tastes.

I can just picture these attacking their prey in massive groups. Small and weak but deadly in groups. Awesome work.

Scratching through the cave is heard,
When past spelunkers fear the word,
Of crackling shells that spill with spite,
That seal the horrid scum Tektite.

Feel free to add it into the description if you want. Just thought it would be a creative way to practice English in my spare time :)

Thanks for the vote and the watch dude! I took a look at your stuff. It's super impressive, especially your industrial-style landscapes and that vehicle. Nice combinations of smooth and angular shapes, plus spot-on values and tones. I'll be watching your progress!

That is an epic redesign.^^ I've also had some thoughts on some more modernized designs for some of the older monsters of the series.:D

Thanks! I wish the secondary light source was better-defined though. I basically stuck it in there because it looked flat without it. I have no idea where the light is coming from though haha

Glowing gas deposit. Fair play if it's set in a cave on Gerudo Mt. See, just gotta work these things out. Make it, then BS an explanation for it till you find that one sticks, haha.

Awesome redesign by the way. I would not so brazenly run into these guys sword swinging as I do the former design.

Very nice lighting and creature. Only critisism I have is with thefar back leg feeling a bit too soft for such a monster.

Fair enough, although I was trying to keep the atmospheric perspective consistent. It should maybe have been more bulky though. I'm glad you liked it!
