Marika - Verstyled.
Finally managed to get down a design for Sneasels and I’m fairly sure this is the style I will be continuing to draw them in End Run.
I based the general air of design on elements from creatures such as the preying mantis, sloth, secretary bird, weasel, cat, imp and, oddly enough, “raptor” went through my head a few times as well, but that could have been because I’m in the process of reading Jurassic Park, hep. Also made the whole thing more fuzzy, apparently Sneasels live in colder regions of mountains, so surplus fur felt like the way to go.
I imagine Sneasels to be overall solitary creatures, scavengers if they can, hunters if they must, however sometimes pairing up or grouping into a small party when required and capable of working in said groups in impressively coordinated unison. Naturally clever and quick to learn and adapt, they are capable of using their wit to overpower much larger opponents and successfully take down a stronger foe such as an Arbok or Dodrio, dangerous wild species living in the same locations.
