Sketched out the initial idea on a legal pad on break time. Ended up darn close to the sketch!
I started this beastie as a means of maintaining my will to live during a really soul-crushing sales job. The project outlived the employment! Goals were to make it believable up-close, and spend a minimum of $$ on new materials, recycling scraps that were cluttering up my workspace.
Close to done now. A few more greeblies and a little more weathering to go.
