WIP – 2020 – 010


Technical aspects: This is the model I created in 3d-Coat for the dangerous “salamander”, a large carnivorous worm that hunts in the deserts of Wesdraken. Its eyesight is poor so it stalks its prey by sensing vibrations in the sand, and by heat. I based the head on an extinct genus of prehistoric coelacanth fish, from the Cretaceous period called a Mawsonia. I added a body using a spline cylinder, and added bumps and points, and oodles of teeth. The microscopic bristle worm also provided some reference and inspiration. Just a mouthful of teeth with a body attached.
