arthropleura by palaeorigamipete arthropleura by palaeorigamipete
a 6+ feet long carboniferous centipede
it's my most well-played scene so far, the lepidodendron trunks are just curled and tape-secured prints of real lepidodendron trunk. i used two sheets of banana paper for the background, all the natural material is arranged on a sheet of wrapping paper, it consists of plants, pieces of bark, stones and sand.
50 by 50 cm sheet of double tissue foil, 25 cm long model

i'm aware that the mandibles are in wrong position, that the antennae should rather be between them, and i've reshaped the model to be more accurate, but i haven't got this scene any more (i had it like for half an hour...). i had to get a rid of it because my mum would kill me if she found out that i've brought trash from outside to my room, so the picture of the updated model won't be as cool... =)
