Hulking and Shell Covered by benhaith Hulking and Shell Covered by benhaith
My entry for the seventh sanctum alien contact contest! ([link])

I used the Alien Race Generator([link]) and got this:
The hulking, shell-covered race. This race has tentacular limbs. This race travels by wings. They are omnivores, but prefer to be herbivores.

Just put me in mind of some big-ass semi-intelligent (over-hyphenated) insect thing, and this is what came out after a couple of sketches.

The background took me forever, and I gaussian blurred it to hell and back, but meh I kinda like the effect.

soooo pissed off with lugging that shell around, you can tell :)

Really good work, and I was going to comment on how I really liked the background effect. I praise you doubly now I know you slaved over it.
