Forager on Algal Mat

Concept illustration for creature design. Foragers are the main characters of "Pelagea," a sort of crab-based life-form that dwells on the surface strata of the floating symbiotic environment polyp colonies, where nearly all progressive life on Pelagea exist. Here, a Forager snacks on algae amidst the bloated gas-sacs of the colony's surface.
