I don't understand the Fight to the death prompt

It says to take a feature of an animal and then mush them together, and then do it again... is it saying that I should find multiple animal traits and put them into one animal, or is it asking me to focus on that specific animals strength as it's main strength while fighting? The language isn't really clear...

The idea is that you design two animals, each one by taking an existing animal and combining it with some kind of trait or feature. So for example, long+cat=longcat or fortress+turtle=fortressturtle. You don't strictly have to design two - the prompt is really just a starting point, so the main focus is on designing a creature by combining a trait with an animal, but for those who want to take it farther, they can work towards framing a sort of "battle" between the two.

Thanks, I was a bit confuzzled by the wording.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
