Antumbral Venators - Sketch Ref by Skysealer Antumbral Venators - Sketch Ref by Skysealer
Those who follow my tumblr have some semblance of these guys. Sketch ref pulled together in a couple of hours.

Just a venator species that thrives on Aeris. I don't have much to say about them other than they're fun to draw and rather simple at that.
I'll play around with a sketch ref for the Umbral Venators, I already have a rough draft ready to go for the Penumbra Venators (posted on tumblr a while ago too!). :>

I really adore the head. The dunkleosteus face looks awesome in this guy.

Interesting critters.  The heads sorta remind me of the giant armored fish from way back when.  I just can't remember the name of it...

Definitely love this ref!! They look so ominous and the extra shin you put on their head really makes the shape standout!

I like the way how these guys have a dunkleosteus-like head(although if I also look at it from another angle,their head also looks like that of a turtle).They must have one hell of a bite.Wouldn't want any of my limbs on the receiving end of those jaws.

Agreed, although they may seem derpy head-on, I'd not want to have any of my limbs near their face anytime of the day.

I really like their face structure, it kind of reminds me of a fish's mouth. The color pallete also looks beautiful ^^, such an interesting looking species you have there.

Yes, their facial structure is based off of a dunkleosteus. C: (which kinda looks like an angry fish-turtle!)

Aaah, I remember reading about this fish in a dinosaur book. Now I get why I found the dragon's facial structure so familiar! :3

It's a really cool idea to base off on that fish to design a dragon, it gave him a very unique look, specially teeth wise. And I also can't help but smile like a fool every time I look at that sketch of his face in front view, because it makes him looks as if he's got a mustache XD. Grumpy looking dragons are the best, haha!
