I truly adore all your creatures! They remind me of things I draw, though MUCH more often on paper than digital, as I am way out of practice on digital. I really wish my scanner worked!

This kinda creepy and beautiful at the same time. :)
Btw, I'm designing an alien planet concept. It's called Aranoserh and arthropods are the dominant lifeforms. Vertebrates are their cattle.

Really nice design!

I love how you combined arthropod features into birdlike shape!

One thing I would change are the claws on hind legs, they do not look like they could support creature's weight.

Thanks. I'm not really worried about the feet, considering how small hooves on large herbivorous creatures can be. Aside from that, I don't think this guy would be big enough for it to be an issue.

You'r right about that, large herbivores do have relatively small feet, but they use all four legs for locomotion. If "Arthropodish" here uses its mantis-like front legs, it would move quite good. It would look a little awkward in motion, on all four, though, creepy, like some sort of insect-bat. Abdominal segments are good support for attacking stances, which is pretty good design.
BTW your creature designs are superb! As a biologist, I salute you for such extraodinary knowledge of anatomy!
