9 Hermit Crab by hwango 9 Hermit Crab by hwango
Entry for "Beasts of 9" contest. I think my favorite bits are the jumper cable claws. Glad I went with that idea over a couple of others that I had.

Thanks!, that's nice of you to say. I do think the drill that won is very impressive, but second place would have been nice. = )

like the crab idea, but the cookie jar is kinds cheezy sorry

Fair enough. I needed something vaguely shell-shaped. Flower pot, motorcycle helmet, bucket...cookie jar just seemed like the best match in terms of shape, and the most interesting thing to paint. It's quite possible that there's a better idea that didn't occur to me. Glad at least part of the design works for you, though.

Thanks - it did feel weird to make something cute out of scissors and metal claws, but I guess hermit crabs are just inherently cute. = )

Wow this piece is really beautiful...The jumper cables really add a brilliant touch to this. The detail and the mastery of it, as a whole, is awe inspiring...to envision something this complex and bring it to life...that's brilliant. ^___^

Thanks! I do seem to come up with odd things to give to hermit crabs for shells. I don't know why that is. My brain is wacky. = )

I don't think I'll be reaching into any cookie jars any time soon...

Good to see a crab made the semifinals, though! I submitted one of my own, but it didn't make it. [link]

Yours is better anyway. :3

Congratulations on making the semifinals!
