:O, wow tweek.. thats a great start!! Nice shell dude! Umm, one thing i would suggest is maybe making the basic shapes out of cylinders to start off.. so you can get a basic shape of what your crab will look like.. you know what i mean? But if you can visually see the rest of it as of now, then thats good.. just i cannot exactly see yet where the head and legs and whatnot are going to go. BTW, if you add spikes to the crab.. i think it would be better if they were facing the other way.. so if the head of the crab was on the left side of that picture, then the spikes should be going away from it, like slicked back hair . If the head is going to go in the middle facing me... then thats a cool effect, still tilt them back a bit in my opinion.. do you understand? If not let me know and i will get you an example . Lookin good though

looks great! Maybe stretch out the shell a bit to the sides.. also.. the spikes are lookin great, but could be a bit bigger and still going backwards, but also going in different directions.. so all facing away from the face, like slicked back hair.. but not all in the exact direction.. so one goes a bit off at a 10 degree angle, another in the other direction etc . Legs would be cool if you added a spike off the end.. i will show you a picture of all i mean . (super rough)

Good luck to everyone involved-

well I am off to a late start here, and I still have to finish my monthly challenge thing! (I overwrote my file which set me back a bit...)

Howard, did you make that sketch through drawing and photoshop? If so your very talented . Nice use of colors and dots.. nothing is over exxagerated.

BTW, tweek.. in NO way do you have to do what i suggest, its just my ideas .. it could look like utter crap from what i say .. who knows.. heheh.. just remember that .
