Heh, my wording wasn't really clear, while I do like where designers are taking games now in that they're making enemies more unique ARTISTICALLY (take, for example, some Half-Life enemies. Bullsquid: sleek and badass? No. Still unique, amazing, and somehow awesome? Yes.) you just don't see enough of that "sleek, badass" factor too often in character design anymore.
Fan-freaking-tastic. Every aspect of this just screams style. The face in particular looks spectacular. Quite frankly, I have to say I'm all for the whole "artistic style" many creature designs take on nowadays, but as this image proves, nothing, absolutely NOTHING can beat full-on style, coolness, and a kickass factor. A definite fave.
