Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Hippie Ant



Somehow I settled on ants and their well ordered life.

Let's see how it goes. :-)

I think it would be better if the arms wherent that long. I also think the nose looks a little bit like a fingernail, but i like the mouth!

Thanks for your comment!
The nose is still gonna be different...

The arms have to be that long as the legs, thats the way it goes with ants
For ants do normaly not have any arms, just legs; and if the ant doesn't want to fall over,
it has to have legs of the same lengths.

This Ant is nearly anatomically correct and only humanized by the pose.

Line Art or Model: Ants Accessoires



One of the Hippie-Ants will play the guitar. I've deceided not to model a "real" Guitar, but a Guitar that could be made by ants. So this Guitar is made of a tiny berry. I will try this way on the other things, too.

Line Art or Model: More Anty Accessoires



Again here's an update :)

A snippy branch, and a tiny piece of cloth, which an ant found, in order to make a shirt from it.

I'm still searching things in nature, which are so small, that an ant could use it.
