Creature Art Direction for Collab

I was the vision holder and part-time team lead for a collaboration project sponsored by Riot games. These are some of the critiques and paintovers and design directions I've done for that project.
Zeus Juncheng Li, Jason Namgung, Jeirome Mercado, Brianna Rodenborn were the teammates that worked on this creature alongside me!
