I have been looking at a lot of grubs and larvae images recently and it seemed like a good fit for the redesign of the Carrion Crawler. It already has tentacles, so it was darn near perfect where it was, so I just wanted to flesh it out and maybe bring a bit more realism to the beast. I thought it would be interesting if it had all its feet in the front dragging the huge bloated form behind. Unfortunately, someone pointed out after the fact that this design reminded them of a creature they have seen before... which I can now kind of see... which bums me out. Not that there is really any new ideas out there... but I wish I had caught it earlier. I think once it is in color it will feel a lot more different.
