This model is loosely based on the giant hairy scorpion, native to Arizona, Nevada, Utah and California. There are eight known species which live in rocky deserts where they dig deep burrows in dry sandy areas. These scorpions are the largest found in North America. They range in size from 5.5 to 6 inches. I've used a bit of artistic licence on this model with the general shape and colours.

I had a real play with mental ray with this one. Getting the lighting, depth of field, and translucency. The model was built in 3dmaxs. I wanted the viewer to feel, this was a treasured possession of a esoteric collector.
