Any tips for designing/ creating fantasy creatures :) ?

Drown yourself in reference images! The more reference you have, the more believable the creature. And like any other aspect of concept art, try to avoid making decisions based merely on the fact that it “looks cool.” Real animals’ appearances reflect their function and behaviors. The types of claws they have, their teeth, their eyes, every little detail informs something about what they do. Approach it like a zoologist.
