Concept art for Miles Dormer, a main character in my short story, 'Tailbone'. He is a Four-Leg, a slang term given to hybrids that walk on more then two legs and resemble animals more then men. I played with a lot of ideas trying to make him more animal or beast, using dogs, cats, monkeys and squirrels as some influences to his personality. In truth I wanted him to be more like a monkey with his tail and hands, and I went from paws to hands, to try and illustrate his dexterity. It's tough to decide on a design without making him too ugly - I find that I always find lovable critters out of these monsters, but its not to everyone's taste!
