Little 2 inch tall alien made from polymer clay and painted with acrylic.
Sooooo.... I LOVE ALIENS!!! Most of the time when I'm working, no matter what I'm working on, I'm listening to my favorite radio show... coast to coast am! It's crazy how much I listen to that crazy show and I'm crazy for never getting tired of it. So since I'm always listening to people talk about ETs, UFOs and other paranormal topics I've been wanting to make another alien type of creature so I finally did it!
I'm not sure how appropriate the background is on this photo... but maybe he's been stranded on earth after radio transmissions interfered with his ships navigation system and caused him to crash!
EDIT: wow! Thanks for the DD! Thank you for all the faves and lovely comments too everybody!
These larvae move together as one.... see this video!! (Not safe for those who are afraid of worms) www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WcdLL… Taken at night in Singapore forest.
Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sciarida… The Sciaridae are a family of flies, commonly known as dark-winged fungus gnats. Commonly found in moist environments, they are known to be a pest of mushroom farms and are commonly found in household plant pots. This is one of the least studied of the large Diptera families, probably due to the small size of these insects and the difficulty in specific identification. Currently, around 1700 species are described, but an estimated 20,000 species are estimated to be awaiting discovery, mainly in the tropics. More than 600 species are known from Europe.
These gnats are small, from one to at the very most seven millimetres long. They have slender, darkly colored bodies and dark wings. However, the females of several species are wingless. Their long legs and antennae with eight to 16 segments are typical of many gnats.
The life cycle of only a few species has been studied in any detail, mainly those which are pests of commercially grown mushrooms. Sciarid larvae are mainly found in soil and plant litter, where they seem to feed mainly on fungi and animal faeces. Also, some species mine in plant parts above and below the earth. The larvae play an important role in turning forest leaf litter into soil.
Adult females lay about 200 transparent eggs (each about 1 mm long) into moist soil. After about one week, the larvae hatch. About 90% of the larvae are female. Up to 2,500 per m² can be found. Several species, especially Sciara militaris, can be found to migrate in processions of up to 10 m, containing thousands of individuals. These processions occur from May to June in central Europe. The larvae there pupate from July to August.
The adults with their characteristic dancing flight do not bite. They only ingest liquids and live only long enough to mate and produce eggs. They die after about five days.
He's a big, bipedal Dinobot stomping his way through the Decepticon forces. It's not Grimlock, it's the original Dinobot! Here this custom Beast Wars Dinobot figure is recreated in the Age of Extinction movie style using the Voyager Grimlock figure as the base and a Generations Dinobot head. Various sections were removed/resculpted to round out his mold including repositioning the forearms and adding Raptor claw like toes. Complete with a classic striped and bone-detailed paint job Dinobot is ready to fight with HONOR!
Is birth the first day of your life, or the first day of your death??? I like the idea of things being cyclical...

I had trouble deciding on the title. I went through a few; - Suffer the little children to come unto Me - Gently Weeps (Beatles reference...) - Cain and Abel
I decided on calling it "Infected" as a reference to a term I hear being used quite often in science fiction movies to describe non-humans or the diseased. Although either of those Biblical titles would have been great too.
I wanted to make some fanart for this game. So I painted a "clicker". These guys have been infected for about a year I think, and have obviously lost their eyesight. He relies on clicking sounds to navigate. Poor guy has fungus growing out of his eye sockets and is basically covered in mould..ew.. So disgusting and disturbing. I was pretty disgusted by this painting the whole time I painted it. But it was a lot of fun. I find painting disgusting things quite enjoyable. I am so excited about this game. I don't have/take time for games anymore, but this one is getting bought so hard. Anyone else excited about this game?

Personal commission from my last run of raptor mask commissions. I don't usually go this far for the blank sales, but this was a fun challenge. She'll be shipped out tomorrow for her owner to finish the job! Good luck to you! Can't wait to see the progress!
Here is my submission for the MAMA contest. I have always been very afraid of sweet docile things becoming evil and twisted. Also, I have always found basements to be very eerie, they still creep me out.
