Character Design Challenge #168- Inhuman

Ok guys, your challenge this week is to create something inhuman, so in essence a monster of some kind that is obviously not human. It can be humanoid, but can't pass it's self as human (so no vampires, zombies or werewolves), or it can be non-humanoid.

As per usual, no limits on the number of entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    My entry this week is known as a “Reaver”, demon of the underworld.

    What about aliens? Does it have to be specifically a monster?

  3. JR19759 says:

    @Anarchangel- Do I have to answer that question? What’s the difference?

    Monsters = Specifically a scary thing.
    Aliens = …Not always scary.

    For instance E.T could hardly pass for human (try as he might) but he’s not a monster.
    Maybe I’m just dumb (probably) but I didn’t want to enter one of my non-scary alien characters if you’re looking for a monster.

  5. TheB says:

    This is my first time entering a contest.
    But here is my character;

    His name is “Emperor Bismarck” a German Shepherd gone rogue on his master.

    What about robotic creatures?

  7. JR19759 says:

    @Xinmodic- Nope

    1st is a Demon from another dimension, it can change its shape at will and harness nether energy.

    Next is an alien

    Last is a beast which has been underground for a millenia

  10. Drinkfluid says:

    Very creepy (probably nightmare fuel): a beastly face from beyond.

  11. Sarah Grace Bennett says:

    First time entering a contest. This is Tyloria, a baby Wind Dragon, playing with her magic.

  12. Darryl Lashambe says:

    This Ent warrior didn’t quite come out the way I had hoped:

    Rakshasa is a were-tiger superhero:

    Hey, TheB. Not sure if it’s just me, but I can’t view your link. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

  14. Brons says:

    Here’s my first inhuman, The Mermaid:

  15. Brons says:

    When this contest was announced, I had just recently completed a set of inhuman characters, a set of demons, their King, Prince and members from two lesser classes:

    Here are the individual characters:


  16. Brons says:

    And here’s my final inhuman character. He was created at the same time as the Demon King, and I envisioned him as more of an ally than one of the king’s minions, and thus the different look:

  17. M says:

    Are before-and-after pictures acceptable? One of the monster in not-very-convincing human disguise, the second the reveal?

  18. M says: A furious Melusine warrior effing dares you to make one more ‘venti latte’ joke

  19. E.C. Dixon says:

    This is my first entry. It’s unfortunately not my best work but I’m not the best at Non-Humanoids. I call this piece “Knocking at Heaven’s Gate” Jesus is the last guard against this demon who uses H.E.L.L. tech to get back home to heaven.

  20. Xiomara Alderage says:

    Here is Seamaiden
