My froggy tank by AxelMedellin My froggy tank by AxelMedellin
I saw a picture of a frog... or of a turtle, or both, who knows?

I bet the driver would need a breathing mask there...

I definately think this thing has the atributes of both turtle (Shell) and frog (the sack/codpit thing), yet I think though since it's obviously alien that it that shouldn't realy matter. I also think the creatur inside the codpit does look like it could have amphibian traits, and thus could survive in the codpit. What may be cool is if the two were some how related, and this is why the creatures would only give "rides" to these certian beings and anyone who is with them (thus are deamed trustworthy). I do think though you should use some diffrent colors just to brighten things up a bit.

Your style also reminds me a lot of Jeff Smith, author and illustrater of the comic series Bone.

Your concepts are amazing. What, or who, are you inspired by? Your style kinda reminds me of James Gurney, the author and illustrater of the Dinotopia book series.

Thanks! I had heard about that series before, but I haven't seen it. I'm quite inspired by Syd Mead, Bob Eggleton, Frank Frazetta, Doug Chiang, the Weta team, you name them...

I've heard a few of these names before, but am not too familiar with them. I'll have to look them up.

Se me acaba de ocurrir que el piloto puede estar en simbiosis con el tanque, se alimentan mutuamente y...

Estoy enfermo :P

Pues no anda tan desencaminada la idea...

Aunque creo que la función del piloto sería algo más de indole desparasitadora, como los pajaritos que les comen el sarro a los cocodrilos...

WoW that is a really interesting tank, and in33d a breathing mask seems the best idea. Great work, Love the shading and colors.

Me gusta mucho eso de ke sus trabajos tengan mucho negro ...les da algo de misterio o de oscurantismo y que todos tienen cierta propension a la ciencia ficcion lo encuentro genial ...
