Acid Spitter in the Canopy

This piece started as several rough concepts done both digitally and traditionally, then finally rendered using Photoshop. The creature is a breed of acidic dragon that lives in tropical rain forests and feeds on small mammals, birds, and the occasional lost human. They have two insect-like mandibles that allow them to hold struggling prey as they are swallowed whole. For larger animals, or those that are not easily swallowed alive, the acid spitter sprays a green-ish, viscous fluid, stored in the spine sacs on their head, that eats through flesh in minutes. It can also emit a fine vapor that has hallucinogenic effects upon inhaling. The vapor can also interfere with response signals and reflexes, making prey less receptive to their surroundings. The acid spitter can be spotted disguising itself as thick vines or branches in the jungle canopy, eagerly awaiting unsuspecting prey
