Creature design is a relatively small, bur flourishing field. Up to roughly 20 years ago, you needed a giant library to be able to make effective designs, and information on the subject was very hard to get. That is different now in the age of the internet. We have all the information at our fingertips. But too much choice can be overwhelming too. So how do you effectively gather resources for your creature designs?
If you think legends and myths are stories from the past, you are mistaken. The Chupacabra is excellent proof of a modern-day legend. It’s a legend from Latin America and the southern US states that came to life after animals like sheep, goats, and even dogs were found bloodless and with very few wounds. The explanation of these events became the Chupacabra.
