Gallery (when public)FlickrSo, this is a hybrid of a Gila Monster and a Snake. I pretty much had to rush and make this, and finished it by the time of the original deadline, then all of a sudden, a contest extension! I mainly left it unchanged, but I did add some extra internal pieces, and altered a few colors. This easily passes the technic to system ratio for the contest (thankfully)!I'm mainly proud of the head, and the overall shaping I got for this. There are a few places that I'm not a fan of, but I don't have unlimited resources :PC&C appreciated! And, good luck to everyone participating in the contest! It sure has been a while since we've last had one.

So much for me having a chance at winning.:P This is overall really great, the only thing I see that could need improvement is the slight gap in the hips, but I wouldn't even know how to fix it. Good luck in the contest!

Nice MOC. I liked the claws and the armoring, and especially the head. Good luck, as well.

[color=#0000cd;][font="'lucida sans unicode', 'lucida grande', sans-serif;"]Though this dude really is awesome. Brilliant claws, just fits together so nicely. I especially like the forked tongue...I knew something was missing from my dude's head.[/color][/font]

I love this, the head is insane, and the tires on the tubes is neat!

I really like how you utilized the Rahkshi spine piece to give the set its hunch.

The look it gives is very monstrous. Do you mind if I use it for my future epic?

Excellent moc Oblivion,your style has gotten a lot more refined since I last seen your stuff.I like the head a lot,it really makes the whole gila monster/snake thing work.The back is another thing I am really fond of,particularly the roundness of the shoulders/upperback really appeals to me.I think you did well on giving Gila Monstrosity an organic feel,so well done.I wasn't sure how I felt about the proportions at first,but I ended up really liking the unique look it gives the moc.Good luck in the contest,I bet you'll do really well!

I still think your MOC should've won. I wasn't to fond of the winner but, congrats. At least you made it to the final poll.

I can't beleive you didn't win it! You kept a constant colour scheme with no keetorange, and is so smooth and natural looking.
