It was tough choosing between Aries and Vadalan, two remarkably cohesive designs that do a great job suggesting particular creatures. But I eventually settled on Vadalan. Aries is perhaps a bit more creative with his slouched posture and precarious, top-heavy design, but the design isn't quite as consistent in terms of texture and color layering, and also some parts like the arms don't have the same level of meticulously-sculpted musculature as Vadalan's build demonstrates. Still, both entries were stellar and it's a shame I have to choose one or the other.
