The man-eating plant has been around in fantasies and storytelling since beyond antiquity. It’s a typical enemy creature used in video games especially in jungle environments.

Since most plants feed off soil nutrients it can be fun to imagine carnivorous plants. Concept artists have a tough job when designing creatures, but it helps to study past works to gather ideas and build your visual library.

Check out this gallery of vicious man-eating plants to see what other designers have come up with.
