Mortasheen - Cactile by scythemantis Mortasheen - Cactile by scythemantis
"Thorn Lizard"

CLASS: Bioconstruct.

Originally engineered as a war-beast, this violent hybrid of animal and plant drains moisture through its spines and can reduce a full-grown man to a crumbling husk in only minutes. It curls into a wheel in pursuit of prey, kicking with its legs to gain velocity and change direction. It craves heat and sunlight, growing sluggish and depressed in too moist an environment.

This guy's not in the Mortasheen gallery on Bogleech. Is that intentional?

He was pretty much "retired" because I didn't feel like he really fit with the style of other monsters. That's sort of changed now, so I might finally bring it back and redraw it sometime :)

So would he become the only Botanical as of yet to not be based directly on a plant?

Wow man... Your detail is awesome. I usually don't like unshaded drawings, but this would screw this one.

I'm faving this. I'd actually fav your whole gallery, but I'll just fav this one... And give you a watch. ; P
