Default arran spaceship challenge: earthling

ack! i've been itching to join in on this competition since the start, but have been too busy with other nonsense. i finally have some free time so i'm just going to see how much i can get done in the last 10 days.

good luck to everyone else - it's great to see so many entries this time.

so here's my crappy concept.

You never fail to impress me - 10 day challenge - that's a new one.

Good luck.

Looking at your concept side ways it looks like the child of Wall-E and Eve

*whisper whisper* hey, if you look through it you can see things from further away as if they're up closer, these binoculars are great! *whisper whisper*

all jokes aside, i'm glad i'm not the only non-sci-fi orientated fellow in this comp!

it looks so compact and personal :attn:
