Loot Chest

Going back to an old uni assignment I had which was to create a loot chest. I had the idea of making something that would be found underwater after defeating some sort of sea creature, hence why it is covered in barnacles and coral etc. Eventually I thought it'd be super fun and crazy to make the chest almost like a crab that could move about to try and evade the player and when the monster was defeated all the corals would die and it would open.

First sketches & silhouettes based on my first version from uni. Utilised the symmetry tool in photoshop to quickly generate these cool shapes
