One of my favourite creatures is the amazing Tardigrade (if you've never heard of it, Google it and you won't be sorry).
So here are a couple of polymer clay sculpts... a Tardigrade and a Robo/Steampunky version.
Super Sculpey and acrylic paints. Domes from IKEA.

Thanks folks. Definitely scaled up, but I'll be labelling the specimen as "Tardigrade Magnam Gratiam".

Very nice work!  Smiley


Mind you, I would be more impressed with a 1:1 scale model.... Just don't sneeze while making it, would be bloody hard to find again! Tongue

On Barsoom the tardigrades have evolved vertebrate characteristics and grow to a very large size.
