    Specimen ID# m-1A
    Species: Metroid
    Sub: Parasite
    Origin: SR388
    Stage: Infant


    I decided to do something that would only take a few hours instead of a few days and came up with this little project. Who wouldn't want a cute baby Metroid in a specimen jar?

    I made him using super sculpey, citadel paint, and some clear nail polish. I have some custom clear stickers coming in as specimen labels and I'm working on coming up with a more custom sci-fi themed container. I may be doing a limited run of these, so if anyone is interested send me a PM!

    Comments and critiques are welcome.

    But what are those peachy things on the right in the last picture? sooo curious...

    Just lumps of sculpey :D 

    To get the fangs and the little spherical eye pieces I sculpt them and then prebake them so they harden up. I then stick them into soft sculpey and sculpt around them. I use those lumps of sculpey to hold prebaked pieces I'm not using so they don't get lost.

    Thanks for the kind words :bowdown:
