Armored Fisher

This creature, native to wetlands and salt-water marshes, gets its name from its tough exo-skeleton and its unusual hunting methods. The Armored Fisher uses whip-like antennae to lure fish and other small animals to shallow waters then lunges on them with its pincers to capture its prey.

This creature was originally for a Sequential Arts class that explored Animal Anatomy for Creature Development. While my Armored Fisher amounts to a "land lobster" of sorts, the experience got me interested in clay modeling. Needless to say I fell in love with armature building too:

This is the armature or under-support for the above sculpture.
