The Scorpion was my first project of third year, which I was inspired to do by the mechanical creatures created by A Mechanical Mind, and it took six weeks to do. I used this project as an opportunity to properly understand how to use texturing and shaders to achieve realistic results. By this stage, I had improved my understanding of Vray, and managed to render with minimal problems. Whilst doing this project, I also was doing a research project on lighting techniques, which I incorporated into the project by using a reverse key light to accentuate the curve of the scorpion.
