Beast Of Burden - Character - Pancreas

Hi, i´ll try to keep regular updates and avoid leaving everything for the last day. Ha ha, i can´t believe myself.
I´d prefer open theme challenges, but i don´t want to get out of the party, so this is what i ´ve got so far.

After six a3 of sketches, this is my idea. A four legged creature, with a reindeer-yak head. I´ve tried to design a cool and original set of legs, so i went for a mantis type. Oh ho, then i realized they where very similar to those of a cg creature from a science fiction film called attack of the drones or something like that. I hope nobody had seen it. Well, everything is already invented...

I´m thinking about the harness and trinkets stuff. I want to make different seats, for a crew of 4 or 5 riders, like a b17 flying fortress kind, one on the neck, another on the haunches, hanging from the belly, on the back, etc. with cannon turrets and so on. I´ll draw them tomorrow.
C&C (command and conquer?) very appreciated. Critics are welcolme. Poems and insults are optional.
Lets Render!!

Feel the pancreas experience!

anyway the sketch is awesome... im not sure if like those legs but overall its a really cool concept

I think the front legs are really cool. I reckon the back legs would look a bit better a bit shorter maybe. Maybe with the knees inverted.
But apart from that look like a cool character.

In the end it all comes down to 0 and 1.

Really diggin the scale and the height. Make some good use of the space below is belly, just like a zeppelin or something.

nice one, the best part is the face IMO.
I had a hard time to figure out "what was what" though, but I see great possibilities in this entry! and as I said that face is marvelous, keep it up

Another concept sketch.

On the left there´s the canon site wich will be hanging from the chest. The right drawing is the main bridge, on the haunches looking backwards. There the course is setted and corrected.
The beast hauls two huge saddlebags for supplies, water and junk.
The shepherd warriors wear thick robes and hoods wich protect them of the two suns of Desertia. The cane is to control and lead the beast. It discharges small electrical spells that stimulate the bob´s brain and make it to turn left/right, stop, go forward/backward, seat, catch a frisbee...
Thanks very much for your comments guys. Phyle, i drew the shorter back legs version, and it looked too "biped" to me, i like all legs of the same height, as a deer, more "cuadruped".
Nanoneen, you can wait seated animation is too much for me.
Thanks, Sir Pascal Blanché, oh that movie brigs to me such good memories. Labyrinth was another great film too.
Fellah, i´m glad you like the face, now i must make it express one of the emotions from the rules.
I hope next update will be 3D
