I was getting bored of drawing my wierd creatures in normal-looking, passive postures, so I decided to have this one in a more challenging pose to pull off. I was also trying to pay attention to good shading which showed his muscles. The spellblast was added with photoshop while I was getting rid of the shapes from the other side of the page. Why is my favorite work always on scrap paper!?! A Magic: The Gathering player I know suggested that it reminded him of a slith firewalker, so I think the species might be something like that.
