SNAIL ANATOMY by funnydoodle SNAIL ANATOMY by funnydoodle
This one is made for a print/poster job. Modeled in XSI, textures done in Photoshop. Several passes were rendered separately and composited in digital fusion. Hope you all like it!

Edit: WOW... DD! I thought i've been spammed when i saw thousands of messages in my account today! Big thanks to everyone who commented!!! I'll read em all and try to answer questions if there's any.

Some answers to your questions:

Q: Did u dissect a real snail to check the insides?
A: NO. No snails were harmed during the making of this work. LOL!

Q: Is this what it really looks like in the inside?
A: You can try doing an image search on google for "snail anatomy" and you'd find similar diagrams. Here's one of the references i used: [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-14
SNAIL ANATOMY by ~funnydoodle is original, detailed, fantastically textured and wonderfully modelled. And also somewhat gross. Enjoy! ( Suggested by ShengDaFlashPRo and Featured by joannastar )

Woah I was worried you cut a real snail in half. Nice work. Reminds me of the film "The Cell"... you know the bit with the horse. I love that movie very dark and dream like. :)

That is absolutely amazing! I thought it was an actual model made out of clay before you explained how you made it o_o

well basically, you find the Gallery Moderator who monitors and features art specific to a certain gallery. EG. Joannastar does the 3D art gallery. Then you send them a note with a link of the piece of art you want to suggest. [link] that should help :D

Just make sure it's worthy of a dd. If you don't suggest good things, the moderators wont listen to you in future.

You should do another one with, like, robot parts.

That'd be badass.
