Ashlesan Warrior sculpture

I’ve been working on this guy quite a bit. Materials have been about $25. No special tools, but I made some sculpting tools out of music wire and dowels. More pics below the cut!

You can see the scars from previous fights/matings.

Formally, it has a cloaca. Informally, it has an “ovipooper”. It also exhales through it.
They eat through the bottom of their feet. The spikes are for injecting their opponents with their genetic material like a nudibranch.

The flesh between the halves of the carapace is a spongy, folded flesh. It’s highly vascularized and is where the Warriors breathe in. It’s also where they’re struck by their opponents to become impregnated.
