    Cringer (Battle-cat) Concept Art

    I started a concept of Cringer from He-man and the Masters of the Universe; partly inspired by the thylacosmilus (an extinct sabre-toothed marsupial). I've got to go back and clean some lines up, create more stripes, and flesh out the body. Let me know what you think of the design.

    I havn't really done any work on the body other than the silhouette lines. Are you having trouble with the head?

    Yes, feels like this creature doesn't have a proper skull.

    The skull is partly inspired by rhinos and thylacosmilus. It's meant to be unsettling and alien with the axe shaped face. I think a skull with a massive horn, a prolonged jaw, and shovel (elephant) tusks would be a pretty strong skull. Are you looking at the silhouette lines of the shoulders/body as a neck?

    You should draw it again in 3/4 view, the skull would be easier to make out that way

    I was just wondering if you planned on giving this bad boy a tail?

    I figured a little curve and a rough sketch might help. I like your idea.

    Since you've reversed the curvature of the thylacosmilus fangs and jaw, it now makes no mechanical sense.
