Evolution of the Morphoids: Part Four: Scarabaeidae

 The most recent ‘Phoid, Scarabaeidae, has a quality of “life”.  I overstuffed it, which seems to give the ‘Phoids more of a sense of muscle. While this one doesn’t have a multitude of appendages to pose, it has the animation I am going for.  It seems to me that there are a few ways to get that sense of life: through limbs, personality, and possibly overstuffing, so they seem to have organs and muscles inside them.
 I’ve realized that to get the most out of these, I need time to get to know them after I’ve made them.  While playing with them in the photo suite, I’ve realized that presentation is everything, and how I document them will make all the difference.  So, today I’m off to photograph them in nature some more.  Here’s one more image, of an earlier piece, Sepal.

Thanks for watching!!
