Mantis Bot II by loth Mantis Bot II by loth
I redid my mantis. Wanted to make it look a bit more dangerous… and the modelling was kinda crappy so I started that from scratch, sticking with the same basic design though.

Old version - [link]

All done with LightWave and Photoshop as per usual.

Lothaleg. (LOTH) Wow! Been a long time mate. AnimeDD days are long gone, and I don't know where the heck Nazmun went to and where his site is. King Vegeta, Vegeta Chik, S.S. and the entire bunch. XeroScab, and well, those days were and will always be memorable..mate. Hope your site and/or Forum is doing well. Good to see you're still using Lightwave and other additional programs to do your craft. As always your work is impressive!

Hope to talk to you on another standpoint, and view. Always an honor to see you and see that you're still maintaining your style and technique. Very impressive.

Be seeing you around, and I'll browse your DA Gallery and post comments where I may!

Cheers!

...aye-kay-aye... in case you're wondering who this is, mate... its me.. Level1. Peace!

Whoa... when I saw the thumb, it looks like a scorpion. Y'know how you can look at those drawings of a cube, where it's just the outline, and any side can be the front? Well, look at this differently, and that's how it came to be for me.
