Illustration Friday: Unfold

At sunset, the snails unfurl their shining wings and dip slowly over the surface of the pond.

    • Thanks crisitunity! I had fun doing that – there’s a few techniques and textures in here that I want to try again.

  1. I do love this one. The snail seems to be enjoying itself immensely. The captioning reminds me a bit of Gary Larson.
    And the engineer in me wonders where the wings get stowed, that shell is too small – maybe up the back in the shed.

  2. Thanks :) I suspect they are of incredibly fine membrane and are given shape using technology similar to that developed by Bruce Wayne.
