Mortasheen - Revoltile by scythemantis Mortasheen - Revoltile by scythemantis
"Scratching Basilisk"

CLASS: BIOCONSTRUCT

The Revoltile is a simple but effective herpetoid best known for its clanging, metallic call and erratic movements, crawling in a jerky, shivering manner between bursts of blinding speed. A compound in its claws and teeth generates an inordinate pain response in creatures with even the most rudimentary capacity for discomfort, the tiniest cut entailing hours of crippling agony. Impervious to pain themselves, the lizards find it quite curious and will gather around living prey to torment it for hours.

Finally, more reptiles!

Spindly lizards.
Well. I hope you know I now need one of these on my 'team.'

Seriously, I love how you draw skeletal creatures.

Oh, man, I just LOVE it when you get creative with your monsters' anatomy. This guy is great, I can totally imagine him locomoting on those gnarled fingers and creepy, long legs.

Rather interesting limbs. Reminds me a bit of the Cloverfield monster.

Really? 0o....besides "Herpetoid," which is a fictional term, I don't think I used anything uncommon

I'm surprised it's those two, they're probably the most ordinary of the longer words in there :p

The legs are great, and I like the way they connect to the arching body. Good job with the ribs and vertebrae, too. The head looks like a souped-up Fangkite. The sensory pit is a nice touch. This guy's got a nice vibe overall, and I'd like to see more reptilian predators from you.

So, basically, get a Volross to attack it or else, because any other monster would be incapacitated by its toxin.

The position of its front legs are awesome, and the head, at first glance, looks a bit gelatinous, which is awesome.

We going see any crocodiles in the near future? You had that one that was a vampire but it seems to have gone, left Mortasheen for pastures new.

Perhaps darkening it a bit will help reinforce this?
