I am not allowed to paint crabs my employer wont let me, must be due to a claws in the contract!

I like the pose and compostion nice use of rimlight, you cannot tell if its waving or about to attack which is why I like the mystery of it,

;D Thanks! It was drawn to the specs of the commissioner, but I'm glad you could still find some mystery and interest in the piece!

Common eh? Glad I'm not Scottish! Teehee, he's very well rendered, and I actually really like his shadow on the sands, quite an odd thing to comment on I guess ^^; An interesting change from fuzzy critters, hope you're inspired to do more like this fellow!

Thanks for noticing the details. I did try to put a lot of effort into the shadows, so thank you for noting that! Thank you for the encouragement.
