In the last few days I kept drawing those kind of alien/snail eyes/horns. So, first I thought about drawing an alien and I realized that snails’ eyes and horns are sort of similar to what I’ve been thinking of. So I combined the alien and the snail idea and ended up creating the above image. My vision was to create a happy, cartoon like character so I also added a sweatshirt on the snail to humanize it a little and maybe create a possible story.
I wanted to emphasize the snail, by puttin it on the leaf in the foreground and leaving the grass in the background, gradually darkened and blurred.
