The SPINY RED EGGMANTIS


A lit­tle 2D crit­ter I cre­ated today.  For months I’ve wanted to study macro pho­tos of bugs and see if I might be able to develop tech­niques to mimic that look believ­ably for my own crea­tures.  Well, I’ve finally begun to actu­ally do this, and am quite pleased with the early results.  I began by glanc­ing at a photo of a jump­ing spi­der, but my sketch quickly became more man­tid and then more crab as I went along.  Inci­den­tally, there is no photo sam­pling or manip­u­la­tion here — it’s pure dig­i­tal painting.
