    See-Shell, Heroic Transparent Spy by BBM

    Well, some of you knew he was coming from my little avatar sneak-peek, and I know a lot of you saw the awesome, classic-style figure COTU made of him, but now you can see the glass shrimp as you've never seen him before:

    See-Shell, in Buffalo-Bill-Man style!!!

    Here he is full-color:


    and in his stealth mode:


    and just for fun, a work-in-progress, pencil sketch just to show the bare bones of the process:


    and for those of you who have never heard of him before; See-Shell is a fan-created character created by myself with the help of Skeletoncrew and Galaxy Warrior of COTU fame. His inspiration was from my old avatar, and screen-name of Glass Shrimp.

    His bio:
    "See-Shell is a member of the Heroic Masters small, but elite, underwater forces. He is a member Crustie Race, the same basic species as Clawful, but of a rare breed that has different and unique powers, and does not share the same cruel temperment. Equally at home on land and sea, the already translucent See-Shell possesses the ability to become completely invisible when it suits his needs. Such as when gathering information on Skeletors' dastardly schemes, or when sneaking up on a couple of Evil Warriors in battle! See-Shell considers it his duty to take the fight to all the evil Crusties, but one in particular has become his nemesis, the deadly Lobscure."

    I can see the DoomPuppet action figure package saying "With PumkinHead exploding Action!" LOL

    I am always pumped when I get to see ANY thing I've worked on go public and this is no exception.
    I just really like seeing everyones' reactions.

    Absolutely, Cody, my hat's off to you!

    P.S. "Pumpkinhead Exploding Action"
    But that would make a great "battle-armor" variant of Attack-O-Lantern...

    I really like him! I'd be scared of a crab man... especially a giant invisible crab man...

    I like the bio as well. Not all crab men have to be evil right? I can't help it though, it does sound funny to say the "Crustie" race, sounds like crusty. Maybe Crustacea would have a better ring to it, or a snap, or crackle, or pop, whatever crab men do. Ha ha

    "Lobscure"? Somehow I missed that the first time around...I love MOTU-style names.

    You don't like the name See-Shell? Are you kidding me? We deliberated forever over his name... originally Lobscure was going to be his name, but then it was decided that make a better dark, mysterious, villainous name... I'll have to try and dig up the thread where me SC and GW debated out a name for him to show some of the rejects... some of them were quite funny. Oh well, See-Shell is his name, and has been stuck to him far too long to change it now, but seriously give a little time, it will grow on you...

    I'm glad somebody likes it!!! I think it's very MOTU also, a little corny, a little clever, very tongue-in-cheek...

    ___

    Well here is the thread where I came up with the names... I guess not all the back and forth got recorded because I just toss out both names in finished form right here ...

    Quote Originally Posted by Glass Shrimp View Post

    Just putting words together I just came up with See-Shell, which is vaguely on the right MotU track I think...

    Another one occurs to me Lobscure, kind of awkward / dorky, but very MotU-ish.

    P.S. Here is an image off the net of a glass shrimp, if that helps as inspiration to anyone:
