This week we want you to design and create a shield for Spider King, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #SpiderKingShield.

The Rookies will be releasing an amazing maya rig soon. It's based on concept art by Tayfur Türkmenoğlu and is being built by the team at Dr.Reel Character Lab. One thing he's missing right now is a shield! Something to protect him from enemies. Your challenge this week is to use the following concept art and create a shield for Spider King. You can push your concept a little further, but please make sure the shield is made from natural materials such as grass, leaves, wood, and even spider web.

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.
