There are no bad ideas when brainstorming
For a third day of shape-sketching, I had some slightly crazier ideas.
I started with a slightly sleeker plesiosaur-shape. With smaller fins, and a bigger head, she takes more inspiration from a shark than a seal. But it was a bit dull.
I tried a plesiosaur-esque body with that Surgeon's brachisaur-swan neck. And I hate it, this is just daft. How would this creature swim? Also, just from a design point of view, it's ugly.
And then, just to shake things up, I went full-shark. She's still got four legs, but a much bigger, shark-like head, more akin to a fish. She'd have dorsal fins (which are occasionally spotted) and the kicker: the thing we see poking out of the water like a head? It's her tail.
