sketches of a character from a series ive created, titled space myth.
the copperhead is a monster that roams the copper mining wastes on the tyairc-lun belt of asteroid moons. the stories tell of a young and ruthless prince who exploited his enslaved workforce to mine these highly unstable faux space bodies. many died due to the environment as well as the apalling living conditions, whilst the prince grew more and more wealthy. during one of his tours of the mines, his ship was brought down by rebellious slaves and his entourage slaughtered. him they left barely alive to torture him till his mind grew dark and twisted. when he finally was flung to his death in one of the oldest and disused pits, he swore upon dark and terrible names, that their lives belonged to him alone till the passing of all memory.
here the stories differ. some say 14 and other 5, 9 and 7. still, he returned terrible and misshapened; some say only a mangled head wrought with steel contraptions, others a lumbering humanoid. but they agreed upon this: he claimed all life on the mines along the tyairc-lun.
today, the belt is much stabler than it has ever been, though traders and patrols refuse to land there unless confronted with dire circumstance. the old mariners say the place smells of death and feels like cold iron upon the heart, the slow winds seem to carry calls of suffering that distract and confuse. those who have been upon describe how hard it is to attempt lift off after landing, citing extended and escalating bouts ofdiscomfort, disorientation and lack of concentration.
...to be continued...

Myuhyak Ancestral Avenger
The Myuhyaks are jungle dwelling humanoids. Subsisting on hunting and gathering, the Myuhyaks are nomadic, wandering the endless green. Natives of this great expanse of tropical woodland, their roots have been traced to the age of creation itself. The Myuhyaks organise themselves into gatherings(Mahtun).
The average lifespan of a Myuhyak 175 years with maturity at 50 years. When the cheif of a gathering passes on, the gathering elects a new chief and he/she leads the gathering in a ritual to convey the spirit of previous chief to the quiet plains of the Myuhyak afterlife(The Anmyuh). The body is washed and adorned with its ceremonial wear, then the new chief breaks open the skull of the old at the forehead to the chants and wails of the gathering. The body is then rolled about in the earth and finally place in a sack of the same earth, sewn and burnt; once agin to the songs that would guide the newly born ancestral spirit.
In times of peril, the Myuhyak stage a great dance to call forth their ancestors to protect them. The spirits of their ancestors is manifested in great hulking humanoid with a head of prodigious size; that spit fire and shake the earth with his footfalls. This creature they name the avenger, the fire from Anmyuh. The Myuhyak word is : Ashanh-tuma
Quick creature concept. Im trying to get one out every two or three days. Might develop some further as I go along.
As always there is much to learn CRIT ME!

Maybe start with already existing animals. And add some features or change a bit their general shape.
You can do plenty of things on them, try and you'll see
