I wanted to post some creature in progress, and hopefully you have some tipps and opinions!
I am creating little animals for a university project. The idea behind this was to sort of come up with some creatures, that exist in our lives, without us noticing them.
This hamster-like creature here, is the one that is always stealing my hair ties (which is supposed to explain why they always mysterious disappear in my flat.)
I wanted to make an animal, not really a monster, so that you could eventually believe it exists. I looked at many refs and did tons of sketches. Until i finally came up with this sort of hamster thing, which i liked.
On the other hand, i am kind of afraid that it is boring, and just a hamster after all.. so im kind of lost here at the moment...
bellow are some pencil sketches, as well as a quick rendered sketch.
i hope you have some opinions and ideas on how to improve this one! dont mind the messy rendering, its not final, im looking for design improvements in the first place!
also, if you have some ideas for other everyday mystery animals on mind - it would be great!
