this is a hybrid creature concept, created from the upper body/mid-skeletal frame of the gorilla, chimp family and Lower section from the jaguar, cat family. This hybrid concept was created from the inside out to have a believable anatomy but also have the final look of a living, monster-like jungle roamer.
the muscles are illustrated correctly to the skeletal frame to show areas of more strength and the general form beneath it's layer of skin.
a layer of flesh on the muscles and bones, defining it's form.
