I saw this contest not too long ago and figured I would try my hand at it.
School just ended for me so I got some free time, I figured I would start with silhouettes to show just the start of where I am coming from.
I have chosen to make a Turret. After lurking a bit around, the thing that got my thinking for an idea was my own. I wanted to do a turret based off of the mysterious Nazca lines.
I had a few ideas in mind, the overall design would incorporate elements from the actual designs of the other animals while forming together this "structure" of lines.
I am currently putting some thought more into the base. Turrets are supposed to look "stable" so the key I'm going to have to work with is the stable feeling while having it focus on the "lines" aspect.
I will either have more silhouettes up soon or actually jump right into modelling.
