Houndeye WIP

The Houndeye (Work In Progress) is a tripedal creature from the alien world Xen as seen in the video game "Half-Life". Its most prominent feature is a single, gigantic compound eye. The Houndeye, or "sound dog", hunts in packs, utilizing a sonic attack to paralyze and kill by disrupting the internal organs of its prey. While shy and timid alone, they are extremely dangerous in groups. This puppy gives "house-broken" a whole new meaning!

Filling in the shape

Too skinny! Needs bulking up.

Much better!
All pumped up and no place to go.

You may be wondering how I'm going to construct the eye; that's a post for another day!

To do:
  • feet
  • claws
  • eye
  • paint job
  • dog license
  • shots
