    Default Weekly Sketch Group(Topic#7 - Anthropomorphic Reptile, Amphibian, or Crustacean)

    The topic of this week's zSketch challenge is...
    "Anthropomorphic Reptile, Amphibian, or Crustacean "

    You're challenge is to display human characteristics with a reptile, amphibian, or crustacean from this list of 10...

    1. Frogs
    2. Alligators
    3. Snakes
    4. Toads
    5. Crocodiles
    6. Salamanders
    7. Turtles/ Tortoises
    8. Lobsters
    9. Crabs
    10. Krill

    Try to keep them more similar to animals than to humans. Don't lose the animal characteristics while adding the human ones.


    You might feel limited by the list of ten but each of these creatures has multiple variations (Look at snakes, there are cobras, vipers, anacondas and tons more...). You literally have hundreds and hundreds of possibilities.

    The Deadline For This Topic Is:
    Wednesday, June 3rd

    Post any work you are doing on the topic and please feel welcome to give constructive criticism to anyone who asks for it.



    The images below are images of anthropomorphic creatures in popular culture.

    Orkan, Looking good man! Looks like a salamander or lizard, correct? Haha please, excuse me if I'm wrong it's still early in its development.

    J.Fernwright, Hell yes! How could I leave out Battletoads?!

    Space, Although I had to look them up, I was familiar with them after I saw a picture. Yeah, anything like that is excellent. I actually forgot to put lizards on the list but they are free game also.

    okay i can't resist, and to make it worse i'm going to try one of each type, amphibian(Rygel), reptile(Bossk) and crustacean, starting with the last. good old Dr.John, i also made a zmovie to show how it was made, i had to stop because masking stopped working correctly, and then the second movie i was recording was lost in a crash. about 3hrs of work so far. the base is supposed to look like a transporter pad, but it needs more work too. some minor touch up needed iin the eyes and painting, and to make his stethoscope. off to bed.
