Whenever I see one of these, I'm put in mind of "the Killing Machine" (book 2 of the "demon Princes" series) by Jack Vance. HIGHLY recommended classic science-fiction reading !!

WOW! this is brilliant!:omfg: That really reminds me of the times of geological history, where giant arthropods walked on Earth. No, (unfortunately) I haven't seen these animals in real life yet, because I have no time machine, though I would like to have one.:XD:
Awesome work!

Glad you like it! :bow: Yes, i have heared of this prehistoric versions too... I didn't remember in which time-period they lived, but as far i remember, it was even before the time of the dinosaurs and that some specimen grow up to 2 meters length... so i asked me: "What would Roger Corman do?" and scaled it even more up ;-)

Yes, it is brilliant! Great job on shading and texture.:)

Karbon 360- 285 Mill. years ago. Lol, a 2m long millipede.:D
Very interesting would be also Meganeura, an dragon fly with 70 cm wingspan.^^

Thanks! :bow: I am happy how well the UV-maps turned out this time. It's a little bit problematic to create a clean UV-unwrap in Hexagon, especially on irregular shaped objects.

Daymn...!! Yep, I'm gonna have to redo my Pagan Vs. Death Crawlers WP with this bad boy...

Yeah!! Did you used this model: [link] ?
That was the only i found on my search before i started to create my model. It's absolutely accurate done, but absolutely expensive too and so i decided, to model my own "Roger Corman-Version" from scratch :pc:

I actually used this model for the Death Crawlers... [link] ... I just upscaled them to giant sized and posed them all around Pagan.

What??? I didn't found this model... And available only for only $1.99 :eyepopping: And i am modeling my ass off because the version from Turbosquid was too expensive :crying:

Eh, to be fair the model you're making has much more detail than Content Paradise's; I'd use the one you're making in a heartbeat if it were available at the time. :)
