Plant men

I’ve been making my way through the John Carter book series of late and wanted to do an interpretation of one of the creatures from the series. Pulp Science fiction creatures are always really interesting as a large amount of them seem to hold very closely to the human form with only a few cosmetic changes: adding a tail, extra arms, give them tentacles etc. The colors alone are usually completely ridiculous as well.

Keeping this in mind, here’s my concept for the plant men of mars along with a bunch of preliminary sketches.

    please do more Barsoomian creatures! This is amazing. In my own head, I see them as having a ‘velociraptor’ stance; but you’ve captured the ‘man’ part of the plant men.
