concept sketches

Designing duel disks is hard.

But here’s an idea I came up with for the duel disks in my Heir Apparent AU (because yeah we need new duel disks; its a new generation and we’re also going WAAAAY off script here, so yeah…). 

I’d love to get people’s feedback on it! Like, on whether or not you think it could function realistically, etc. I’m not really that great at designing mechanical things (I’m no engineer), so any advice to help improve it would be greatly appreciated!

Trying to do some creature design, but lacking creativity. I don’t want to just put together two random animals that would make no sense in being connected, but when making it somewhat logical it just ends up looking too similar to already existing animals or simply boring.
