Mechanical Scorpion
Art by Dennis Hoppe

Discription: This little guy was completely made in 3DS-Max5.1 I had several reference pictures of scorpions
when I started modelling and noticed, that there are actually some Scorpions with only 6 instead of 8 legs.
I think I finally made a compromise and chose to give him 6 legs and those little "arms" in front of his optical
system. The Metal-Shell is made of a procedural metal using very fine bump-, specular- and environmentmaps.
Polycount (smoothed): 1.3 million, rendertime: appr. 1 hour (1 Ghz, 256 MB RAM), modellingtime: 5-6 evenings.
