These creatures were supposed to be a smaller project that I started on my Twitch stream. I originally planned to only do a head bust but I was enjoying it so much I decided to create a bipedal creature which eventually transformed into a quadruped.
The initial design was inspired by Goliath Beetle Grub, worms, and crustaceans. I was aiming for a creepy rock dwelling creature that usually hunts or attracts its prey in dark areas or at night. Initially there were no plans for eyes but I felt like it needed some frontal eyes just to give it additional form and some additional creepy. These eyes were meant to be very small as I planned on it having very poor vision, mostly close range, because of the night hunting and scavenging i.e. their name, The Dwellers. They are more of a “I don’t really need to chase you but I will if I have to.” type creature.
