Woop its a zombie snail look at it, all zombie ish

I drew and animated it in about 4 hours. I recorded the process, find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osb7O7qmDos

It is originally for an art gallery of sorts over at bogleech.com

The shell is a tad wobbly but I like it this way.

Also, its supposed to be a cartoony representation of Leucochloridium Paradoxum, a parasite that change a snail's behavior and turn its eyestalks into something that looks like fat larvae to attract birds.  I had read about this before in a Bernard Werber book and recently came across this page that was requesting "fan art" of the phenomenon, and this is my entry!

Hi, i love your works. Do you draw on paper before doing this?

Just great!

I like the character, the colors and the animation. Only the last two lines look a bit odd, but thats nitpicking.

 Realy impressive animation *-*

Favorited :D

I think the shell looks a bit odd the way it wobbles. It might look better if it moved an one solid shape.

However, I love the shading and the colours.

Seems odd to me how the shell is going up and down, but not left or right. Nice job though.

Haha, that's awesome.

The rippling effect is too cool, and the colours are great :)

awesome animation...

It looks like you're starting to clean up your scratchy style a bit, which is great! Looking much readable now, less mess. However, I'll jump on the band wagon, and say the shifting of the shell doesn't work in this case, whether it was meant or not...either way, hope to see more refined stuff like this in the future...

bbasalinga (Level 1 Private) @ 6/25/2009 08:21

That is just awesome. Love the colour choice makes it look really um... zombie ish.

smokehound (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/25/2009 05:36

 Freaking great!   It looks like a snail without the shell!  Under a snail's shell, they still have the shell shape, but it is rubbery and jiggly.  


Green_Hell (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/25/2009 02:11

I really like that but, If I were you I'd try to mask each frame so it wouldn't look so obvious. Just edit it a little bit.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/24/2009 23:18

great work

That's exactly what he did. You would see if you watched the youtube video.

Your style is unique.

MdNight17 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/24/2009 18:39

It seems you grab parts of the shell and just move thema few pixels up and other parts a few pixels down

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/24/2009 18:25

I don't like the way the shell moves in this piece. It should be more solid my minds eye tells me as soon as I saw this.

Great work as always though mate.

Nice, I like the shading on it. The motion is good, except the shell looks like it isn't a single hard object. Overall, very creative though, well done.
