These were the beginning ideas. I had one requirement for this character besides the cyborg arm - Goggles! (Or at least something like it)Something cool is forming for the goggle idea. If not goggles then more cyborg parts that look like goggles.
The overall look seems to be forming around a turtle and a bird. Not sure I like the bird aspect. Ah, this feels better. I am really drawn to the jaw. And the shell is more like a millipede shell than a turtle. Interesting front view with a note about how the puppet eyes might work. Side view. Really taking shape here. I broke it into its individual parts to help me get my head around how I would build it as a hand puppet. This side view is how I believe I'll pursue construction. Of course the final animation model won't come until after the puppet is created.
