Acutis Presbytis Venatoris

I gave the creature a fancy latin name to make it seem like a real "scientifically classified" animal. It means "Sharp Sighted Hunter". I was trying to create something agile and deadly that had all sorts of senses. I wanted it to be able to hunt prey in all the unimaginable conditions an of alien rainforest, or James Cameron's brain.

I usually gravitate towards chunky cartoony lines, so this is just the second time I've really tried to realistically render the shit out of something digitally, the first being my Cthulhu. I made a lot of embarrassingly bad mistakes on that attempt, which I tried to avoid. For the most part I think it's a big leap forward.

I included 3 stages of development to show my overall thought process here.
