This beast, which I made up when I was 12 years old, remained nameless until a week ago. My sister said "A while ago", and I was grinning because it sounded like the name of some exotic animal. So here's that animal!
Other than the background being too damn light, I like this pic. It's hard to tell but the male has a white face while the female's is pale grey. So far, I can't think of any biological reason why there'd be armored scutes on the back besides looking cool. I did make doodles last night on them curling up but it looked a bit awkward because of the long legs. Maybe they sleep curled up at night.
*sighs* I wish you could see the real version. The subtle shading on the light parts is much clearer and more solid looking.
