Thargoid Interceptor |Hydra variant

I worked on this Hydra variant of the Thargoid Interceptor that my former colleague, Ben Andrews, designed.

With a much darker color scheme than the original design, I tried to break the original shape a bit and make the aggressive shapes pop more thanks to this acid green color and some added geometry. When you're in a really dark "corner" of space, it almost looks like a new ship as it erases the curves of the main wings.
As references, we looked at venomous / poisonous creatures that have very colorful and contrasted color schemes as well as interesting organic patterns.
