Awesome reference suggestion! Thanks richkid. Images of that crab really shows how things can grow and be patched onto a living, mobile creature. Ingenuity at its finest.
He's like a gigantic chia-pet of destruction.
I just decided on him being a magnificent 82 feet tall. A mobile fortress armed with the most deadly of giant, organic weaponry; Barb-shooting flowers, poisonous pollen mortars, nasty spiders, wasp hive, fire ant brigade barracks, quick-snare ivy, fungi fortifications and more to come. I want just enough business to keep the eye moving... not so much as to throw it into chaos.
Cool, earth-toned colors (with splashes of brightness) to decorate most of Herb himself, but all growth will be derived from a real hot, exotic color palette. The Passiflora flowers are being referenced a lot. It will be some real Mesozoic looking shit.
Right now I am researching organic weaponry, reshaping his shell and then mapping it out for optimum growth support and tactical advantage. I'm really thinking about working ecosystems here too, so that adds an extra layer of depth and fun for me. Of course, the food chain depends on a hefty supply of the fallen soldiers of our sworn enemies [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
