The Cryptid, also known as Nyx, is a creature that I created after watching a lot of YouTube videos about mysterious creatures such as Big Foot and Mothman. Modelled after myself, this creature is a collection of characteristics from all over the animal kingdom. It has the lower body of a ferret, the horns of a goat, elf-like pointed ears, and large crow wings. Although strange, and admittedly cursed, I also wanted the design to be goofy and endearing in an unconventional way.
Within the universe that Nyx lives, are other fae woodland creatures such as faun, faeries, and wood elves which I have based off of friends. Although the idea is very much a work in progress, I am super proud of the concept and character designs that have gone into this idea.
