Myn-rem by Asanbonsam Myn-rem by Asanbonsam
These Australian shapeshifters are called the Myn-remare and they are partially inspired by the rainbow snake Julunggul, the snake Bobbi-bobbi which gave humans the boomerang as well as some weird cryptid stuff that is probably made up. Apart from this shape, which actually turned out more monitor lizard than python, they turn into humans and Australian Carpet Pythons. I came to this war shape by reading some of the crazy stuff these believers in extent theropod dinosaurs spit out, and I don't mean that birds are dinosaurs, I mean those claiming they have reports of allosaurs or velociraptors. Well I though in the World of Darkness a shape like that could easily warped into such an image and due to the rather emu-like feet the tracks would be difficult to spot.

Thankfully, due to a commentar I noticed that this pose is very similar to this one: fav.me/d5duw6g
I just wanted to make sure that this is just a coincidence. I did notz copy that figurine.

Good that you said that. I did a quick search, since I guessed it would probably be a werewolf pose and found something. This one here looks very much alike in pose: fav.me/d5duw6g
So I could add a comment that this is just coincidence.
Thanks.

You did a nice job with the scaling. Also I like how for the head, you seem to compromise (or hybridize) the heads of a python and a Komodo dragon.

That was actually rather a coincidence. I wanted it more python like but with the bigger brain in the skull and all, it turned out like this. :D

Granted I wasn't sure if python teeth are visible when the jaws are closed.

No it usually isn't. I don't think any snake has visible teeth when the mouth is closed. I also made it like this due to some cryptozoologist garbage I once read about therapod dinosaurs (of course popular species like Allosaurus) surviving in Australia and since these snakeshifters fit into a game line where these shapeshifters always have a certain "psychological shield" around them that basically warps the memories of the people seeing them I thought "that could fit."

I noticed it's pretty common to apply modern interpretations to events or creatures in legend or mythology. Hell, I read a lot about it in Mayor's book about Native American lore and fossils. Seems a little easy though (I admit I fall into that trap with my monsters).

I have no problems with fossils. In some  cases the similarities are strinking so it is logically to assume that some exposed ones created or contributed to the legends. However other beings are simply so bizarre and physically impossible that they are probably more likely the result of a long process, e.g. earlier depictions of Western dragons, like in the St. George story, show a relatively small being that looks rather like a varanid and only later did the forked tongue become a flame and some other features were added. I think this is what happened in the case of many mythological beings, which would explain the sometimes downright ridiculous characteristics they have.

Kudos to the the thought you put into the shifter's background, as well as the excellent art. I will be stealing this Breed for my Australian campaign.

Well it is out here to be used and you are actually not stealing much, I mean there is barely any background. :D

I have two other shifters that can be used for Australia as well, well technically three.

Umm... I always pictured a Weresnake/python's war form to look more closely to Vertigo from the game Rage.

Well in the game line this Myn-rem belongs to the war form can usually only be held for about half a minute and is extremely violent. Therefore I needed a shape that could deal lost of damage in a very short time. And the shape of the Vertigo is in my eyes to slim for that.
