Neat models!

I realy would have liked it more if the tail was swinging forward (thus creating the penetration) instead of the body. It gets a bit confusing.

Also the camera seems to be moving too quick during the penetration, I had a hard time seeing it was moveing forward at first.

It works alright, but here's some things to try to maximize the the effect...

The scorpion does not have any "anticipation". Make him pull the stinger back a good bit, hesitate for a moment, and then plunge the stinger into the guy. When that happens, have him pause again, and have some "follow-through". Then give the pickup some anticipation, and have him struggle a bit to hoist up the guy. That will not only give the animation more "punch", but will add a sense of weight that is almost totally lacking.

Stand in front of a mirror, and go through the motions of thrusting a knife into something in front of you. Then imagine you had the strength to pickup whatever you stabbed with the knife. Use one hand. Do it over and over, and observe your motions, weight, and timing.

Looking very neat already. Maybe a bit of a sicko idea and it would require long rendertime ;

Exchange the guy model for a nice female one. She turns around as she notices the scorp to have snuck upon her and of course it's too late becuz the scorp grabs hold of her with both his pincher claws. Build up a tension moment, before it pierces her heart. (perhaps insert a close up shot of her face where you can see a teardrop roll down her cheek).

Just an idea eh :)
