molluskus the high shell-guard by jouste molluskus the high shell-guard by jouste
art dump: notes taken from polycount sketchbook thread

behold mortals! molluskus the high shell-guard! wielding the hand of death he has squashed a puny human with a casual step!

snaliens like molluskus grow outwards from thier heavilly armored shell, the only vital organ that really follows them is thier eyeballs and some brain, the rest is housed in that super dense shell on thier rump. the main composision of the snailien is super thick dyna-muscles. dyna muscles are superawesome and can take an insane amount of punishment.

Ok its a weird creature, I am strangely fascinated by it.

But it is a great piece of art non the less. Nice job! Very detailed!

hey thanks!

i usually don't draw litle guys like this but the character had a lot of fun little details to play around with.

i find sketch trading a really good exercise to do. it challenges you to hang around in someone's head for a while. :D

Yet another awesome idea, I love when people combine words (like Snailien) to come up with entirely new concepts. I know Lewis Carroll was a pioneer of that literary device (Portmanteau he called it) I myself use that concept when creating some characters and I can see you have a thing for it as well.
