Since everybody seems to be doing a mechanical spider/scorpion of some sort, I thought it would probably be a good idea to start a contest.
The goal and rules are very temporary, I only worte them to give a small idea of what the contest could be about.
GOAL: Create a mechanical insect/spider/animal in Blender.
You can render in an external renderer, but Blender must be involved in the modelling process.
Your creation must be animatable (that would be for some surpirse after the contest)
You can submit an animation, but entries will be judge on a single still image.
etc, other technicalities missing, like final image width, deadline and stuff like that.
So, what do you think?
