Ashlesan Warrior Sculpture, Painted

Ashlesan warrior, about to stomp you. Gills are visible between the halves of the shell and the eating orifice is visible under the raised foot.

Painting is nearly done! You can see a spot I missed completely on the right knee, and there are a couple of spots that still need work, but the body’s just about done. Next come the banners, which will brighten the monochrome substantially. More pics under the cut!

The front left foot. Note the purple coloring where the skin is thin from the circulatory fluids.
It's hard to see in this lighting, but you can see the blue/purple circulatory system where the skin is thin at joints.

May I help you?The patterns on the back are unique to particular individuals. but share characteristics within a herd.Hind legs and ovipooperThe front right leg, gills, and spots. This individual is making a swiping, one-foot attack. If it were committed to the fight, it would be resting on the keel under its chest and fighting with both spikes.

The heavy rear toenails are used to push the warrior forward on its keel so it can simultaneously move and fight with both forelimbs.
