Mjolner - Amphibious War Beast by nJoo Mjolner - Amphibious War Beast by nJoo
Been super busy lately, I'll be posting more, here's another one of my creature design ;P

(Yes the 2 at the back is copy and paste just for the mood, as this was meant to be a quick concept piece rather then a complete illustration so I got lazy hehe)

Amphibious War Beast

The Mjolner is actually a quiet peaceful creature, it is rarely violent and hunts for food, because of its large size it does not have much predators. While moving around, its opening at the bottom belly and feed on dead animal remains, or fruits or plants, or anything it can feed upon.

Mjolner toad are rumored to be often used as warbeast of the ancient tribes, the name Mjolner, which is derives from the hammer of Thor, because of its large hammer like head along with the roaring sound of thunder of the creature's scream . The eyes of the creature is extremely sensitive which allows the captor to ride and control the beast trampling across anything that crosses its path. The underbelly digestive organ is used as a clean up tool that feeds on the corpse of enemy (and sometimes friendly) fallen warriors.

Are those ear-like flaps gills? They are really eye catching, but I they do not appear in the description. Fascinating imagination.

Cool, always love your monster designs. Very inspirational, especially with the ideas that back them up :)
The other two monsters feel a bit too copy pasted though, maybe if you added another small one in a landed position as oppose to a taking off posture that would solve it.
