Default Zoanthrope





on this one i tryed to layer stripes on the carapace insteed of simply wash it and just do edge-stripes. so i need your opinion if this works better or not. i should hear your opinions before i paint any further Nids

I definitely like the stripes on the carapace, but the brain needs a lot of work. Get moe of a gradient between the red and pink.
I love how he looks so very slimy.

The skin looks good, but the brain looks like strawberry ice cream, and the carapace looks like cartoon wood. It's cool, but looks way too much like a toy for my tastes.

I really like it, but I agree with Stooga, the brain DOES look like strawbery ice cream. Maybe run it over with red inkwash. Other than that, it looks great.

Personally, I think that thing looks AWESOME!!!
I love it!!! I can't imagine why (almost) everyone else doesn't think it's so cool...it's original and very...well, awesome!
Only the brain could use some more blending, but I think it is one of the coolest 'nids I've seen...
