Maze Runner - Griever Concept Art by KENBARTHELMEY Maze Runner - Griever Concept Art by KENBARTHELMEY
My first Griever Test Design I did for the ''Maze Runner'' film. (All painted)

Slugs and coconut crabs were a huge influence for me in finding the overall body shape. The head was a bit tricky, since in the book they have no face, only a big ugly mouth. It's basically a mixture of caterpillars, bulldogs and even piranhas.

The design on these things would have been better if it had been inorganic the humans would not have escaped, especially if extra tails were added to support the original

I didn't think I would like the movie, not having read the books and only going by previews - but it was better than expected.  I especially liked the look of the Grievers.  Now I have stumbled upon the creator of the look I take it - so thank you for those.

Coconut crabs are scary. Good choices. Amazing work. It almost looks like some kind of servitor from Warhammer 40k, with the flesh-machine hybrid design.

Haha, seen this thumbnail without a title and thought "that looks like a griever". This is how I imagined them when reading the book. More lights maybe... I think they where supposed to glow in places.

Wow it's so cool that you're the one who designed the Griever. Really impressive design, and I love how it has some elements of your other works.
I'm glad you designed it this way, most art i've seen for the Griever looks like something out of Monsters Inc.
