I don't normally like fantasy creatures, because they seem repetitive, but I like this for one main reason. It has a some old school fantasy mixed with definitely more current video game design. The beast looks totally brutal, but the face is something that would fit in a movie like Labyrinth. It has a "creature" feel in the face. I think the most interest visually in this comes from the hair and the weapon.
I like it. In a genre that in my opinion feels trapped. You got a little bit of life in it.
