Analyzing shapes and poses in creatures and characters

When you work on a design, you will want to spend your time communicating something that makes sense. This could be an iconic bulky warrior or a design for a creature that’s not what it seems like. Either way: You won’t be doing something random as that’s just a waste of your time. Understanding what shapes communicate is one of the most basic skills you need to have, especially when it comes to creature designs.

The Yowie and other cryptid humanoids

Unless you live in Australia, you may not have heard of the Yowie, but you surely know the Sasquatch, Yeti, or bigfoot! Maybe you even heard of the Barmanou, Chuchuna, or Almas. They are all the same kind of creatures people see throughout the world with roughly the same features. But no real evidence has been found to prove their existence. Because of this reason, they are still considered to be mythical creatures. Remarkable about this ‘family’ is that you can find them throughout the whole world!

The unicorn, an ancient myth

The Unicorn speaks to anyone’s imagination. We grow up with them displayed in any kids store, and featured in many movies. Usually portrayed as a white horse with a big horn on its forehead. They signify purity. No one but a virgin female is allowed to approach this creature. Anyone else will either get speared by the horn, or die upon touching the magical creature.
