Ok - I think I am going to enter. Still working out my idea so I may post a sketch soon or just make it up as I go along.

I need an elephant - so I am just going to start building that and see how it goes...

my design also includes Queen Victoria, so here is my start on her. I could only find a couple of decent pictures of her, so not sure how close of a resemblance I will get.

Looking intesting...
I am wonder, how you will conect those legs to the body? Or maybe you want the elephant to be like a mashine?

Good start, anyway...

thanks guys!

yeah - i am going to attach the legs to the body - machinary does have something to do with it. I'd post my sketch, but it stilll needs some work. All will be revealed in good time... if I can get my finger out!

oi d4rk3lf - I thought you were threatening that you were going to enter the challenge. I'm laying down the polygon gauntlet!! Just kidding mate - it would be good to see what you come up with.

thanks tweetytunes not sure how far I will get with this one - there are already some great entries - yourself included.

I like your idea for an avatar fight though. I already have my next one lined up...
