Vein is a character from Darren Shan's The Demonata series of books. She is one of Lord Loss's favourite familiars, and the sister of Artery.

Vein is described as an 'obscene' creature with the body of a 'very large dog'. She has the head of a crocodile and feet that resemble the hands of a female human.

i started with a hobbit 'warg'

added a dinosaur tail(juvi trex from jp2)and sculpted hair to blend the two together

i added hands from a troll figure(the hobbit) i thought these look very famine once i painted some red nail varnish on them i then added some rotten skin type wounds (just for fun)

i added the head (used from a schlieh spinosaur), i used this as its very crocidilian looking and thought it looked more demonish than what an actual croc head would of(hope that makes sense)
i sculpted hair/fur around the head but i didnt blend it on purpose as i want to try and keep the articulation its on a ball joint so it can rotated side to side as well as move up and down
the mouth is also articulated and can be opened and closed

thanks for looking and reading

This is a fearsome looking creature! While I like all the disparate elements, which is a hallmark of classical demon design, I think that the transitions between them could have been better/smoother--the fur-to-scales-to-flesh is too abrupt. I know that you wrote that you wanted to retain the articulation, but you could still do that by using paint for the transitions instead of sculpted texture. For example, you could have drawn/painted a bunch of little hairs, decreasing in thickness/coverage moving down towards the hands, on the human forearms (something like how they do Wolverine's arm hair on some figures) and/or applied a black wash to that region.

Had the overall look been more cohesive, I probably would have awarded it five stars, but, as-is, I'm giving it four.

thanks again for the constructive critism, tbh I didn't really think of doing the hair that way, I just knew I wanted to keep the articualation but knew if I sculpted it I would loose it but I'll keep that idea for next time
