With orthograph designs in place I used today to get to work on the creature. I think progress with the head is good so far although there are a number of triangles I'd like to shift away if I can. That'll be something to consider over the next day or so. Other than that I would say the head is around 60% modeled: I need to add the interior of the mouth, clean up the geometry especially around the horns, UV map it and then mirror it before moving on to the torso. I also have the tongue to make.
The frill is so far where it is most complicated, as I have tried to convey the idea this is fused to the head. Where it joins the head still needs a little work however, but I am making progress on that consideration, and where to clean up the geometry.
In regards to the tongue I figured that given this was a long ,rather prehensile thing it needed ot be quite muscular. Which, in turn would make it look quite fat at the base and possibly the midsection, tapering into a tip where the smaller mouth is. For an extra "disgusting" factor, perhaps during the animation this mouth salivates, that or it glistens. Either way the idea being there's a "sliminess" to it partially based on one suggested idea that these creatures use their saliva to stick their eggs underneath sofas, behind appliances and the like.
