Tree Head, Creature Design, Blender

- In this project I tried creating a creature with a tree-like growth on it's head. The environment heavily inspired by underwater flora.
- The 4 eyed design is far from original so i decided to give to the small pair of eyes on the top a different sensory function. In this imaginary planet, dangerous electromagnetic flares penetrate the atmosphere irregularly every few days. Some of the creatures have a second pair of eyes capable of sensing the slightest electromagnetic changes millions of kilometers out of the atmosphere of the planet so that they can find cover in time before the deadly flares reach the surface.
- Another hidden detail is the fact that there is more than one creature living in the same body and both organisms have a symbiotic relationship.

Everything in the project was created from scratch, from 2D sketches to models, textures, rigs, simulations, animation, and final composition.
I hope you enjoy it and constructive criticism or questions are welcome.
