Scorpion Woodwork by xofox Scorpion Woodwork by xofox
So my little brother is all about scorpions these days, to the extent that his superhero persona is "Scorpion Man." (There's a fun story behind that, but I digress.) I was going to make him a superhero jetpack for Christmas, but I discovered that I have no idea how to do this. So instead here's a scorpion in stained walnut with a kitschy version of Egyptian designs on it in gold leaf.
All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. The wiring took a couple of tries to get right, but the whole thing is sturdy enough to be a toy (and it is a toy, not a decorative piece) for a six year old, and I may have an interesting tattoo to boot after getting some wood stain into a deep cut on my finger. If I ever do another one there will be some differences, but there always are.
Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone, and Merry Christmas, Benjamin!

Very nice pattern. I can see this being a Zelda boss.

I never even thought of it that way. Hmmm...I should have a crack at the other zodiac signs at some point. Thanks for the train of thought!! =D

That looks beasty! Reminds me of Leviathan from Disney's Atlantis (and a little bit of Okami 'cause of the marking on the tip of the tail =P)
