Thought I would give this contest a crack. So far I have just been sketching out some designs. I am by no means a concept artist so these are far from the prettiest things in the world, but they've helped me get a more solid idea of what I am going to model. These aren't final designs yet either, this is just an initial sketching phase to try out a bunch of ideas. Though I'm fairly certain I will be going for the general idea of the hang-glider/hover-board manta-ray style beast, as well as the more tank-like battle-snail.
