Wow, listen to this.. i got this from the guiness world records 1997 book. The taka-ashi-gani or japanese spider crab, is the largest marine crustacean in the world. THe largest specimen on record had a claw-span of 3.7 M (12 ft 1 1/2 in). :O, HUGE.

hey M- yep you are correct! I did a pencil sketch- scanned it into PS- darkened it using the levels tool- copied it into the alpha channel- inverted it- made a selection out of it- made a new layer and filled the selection- and painted on a blank layer beneath it.


*whew*..... now onto modeling!

H!
