Tree Crabs of the Lonely Forest

The prompt for our first assignment in Drawing for Animation was "Tree Crabs of the Lonely Forest"... result seen above. I found the idea of tree dwelling crabs quite horrifying... and even more so when I found out they are not fictional. There are actually quite a few varieties. eek.

The assignment was mostly meant as an exercise in research... Here are the sketches:

Nature, I've decided, is creepy weird.

Nature is totally freaky weird sometimes. Do a little research on creatures that live in the deepest caves on earth and you won't sleep that night.

Nice crabs too. Really expressive. Have fun in Joe's class. I loved it.
