I always wanted to create a croc. In order of giving the details I wanted, it needed to be big. But a full size croc is way to big so I decided to do the tail, which for me represents the essence of the animal. This one is like alive, I tried to mimic the movements of the animal.
Why blue? There is no way I was going to make it green. Yellow was an option, but finally decided to go for the blue, that is a recurrent color on my artwork. This time I went for a darker mix, and with red hints on the spiky tips of the scales.

Siempre quise crear un cocodrilo. Para dar los detalles que quería, tenía que ser grande. Pero un cocodrilo de tamaño completo es demasiado grande, así que decidí hacer la cola, que para mí representa la esencia del animal. Este es como vivo, traté de imitar los movimientos del animal.
¿Por qué azul? De ninguna manera iba a hacerlo verde. El amarillo era una opción, pero finalmente decidí optar por el azul, que es un color recurrente en mis figuras. Esta vez elegí una mezcla más oscura y con toques rojos en las puntas de las escamas.
BERT is spider is made of common iron wire twisted and re-twisted until I got the final desired look. The abdomen is casted in polyurethane from a mould (I have disposed of it in Singapore before moving to Spain, so there are only 2 such items) and coated with epoxy in bright yellow.

I have a special attraction to spiders. There is something that attracts me in doing moe and more of them. What I really enjoy is shaping the abdomen. In this case I have made it with very long legs with an inner thick wire as frame and twirled with a fine wire all around the legs. I also have added segments of wire to give a different thickness to each section of the legs.
