A creature design process

The idea behind this creature design was to incorporate a scorpion, a quadruped such as a horse or lion, but I wanted to establish an overall arthropod look to it.It can climb hard surface terrain with its hard claws and it rears its prey or victims in with its expandable claw jaw.

The initial idea was this:

It then turned into this:

However, I wanted to change the colour to more of a yellow/orange, as it usually resides in cave/mountainous regions, but possibly in jungles.

This is what I came up with, but the proportions and perspective, as well as the overall design displeased me, thus I drew it out again, THIS time I used an outline sketch to make sure everything has believable proportions and the perspective was correct, as well as lay out a proper light source/direction.

I then tampered with the original outline shape a little and established a light source and direction.

Here is the finished piece!
