So, after that last round of crits on my stomatopod-alien, I've been fucking around with the design in my spare time, and I landed on this. The legs have been changed from sprawled out bug legs to a slimmer-profiled layout underneath and alongside the trunk of the body. The antennal scales have been kept, along with the tentacles, but the stalked stomatopod eyes have been traded in for a specialized segment with four compound eyes, giving this fella a great field of vision.
I think this design might be the one I stick with. This has all been for a story idea I've been playing with, and eventually want to work on.
