Very cute! I thought of chain mail, too. But that's as far as I got.

I'm always amazed at how a drawing can be done with one line - this one is really amazing.

Great job!

I love armadillo's! Very good sketch. A group of friends have Armadillo Day party every year. It started because we always made excuses for parties and we said lets have an Armadillo Day (No armadillos in PA thats why it is so obsurd)It has turned out to be quite an occassion. Several bands play and a couple hundred people. Coming up on 25th year. Sorry for the ramble.
