Default Mar/Apr - Norm - joshlobo

Hi everyone,

it's been a fair while since i've participated in this comp... but this one looks like a doosey. Also i'm not sure what level i am so i'm going norm style, and see if i can match it with the big boys (and girls).

i haven't got much time to do this but i'm sure as hell gonna try.

my concept involves a robotic (and armed) snail... still trying to work out what it transforms back to. i'm thinking along the lines of a unicycle. it seems kinda out there so i hope i can pull this off.

i'll post concept art a bit later.

Josh

ha ha...some good ideas here, though I wonder how you will resolve the wheel / snail shell problem. This should be an interesting project!

Good luck in the challenge!

Nice idea there.
I laughed in watching it.
I'd love to see this in 3d.
Cartoon style put fresh idea in this challenge.
Want to see more

A snail... that's something truly original and unexpected. Can't wait to see how it turns out
