        • Wow, excellent creation. Blending is very well done, and the shadow on the eyball/facehugger is quite convincing!

        • lowering the saturation of the red values in the panther would have taken the edge off the slight variance between the jet black fur of the tarantula and the slightly reddish brown fur from the panther source.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Biologists have announced that twenty-seven previously unknown species of spiders, centipedes, scorpion like critters and other animals have been found in caves beneath two national parks in Sierra, Nevada. The discoveries were made in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. One of the discoversies is a relative of the pill bug that is so translucent that its internal organs are easily visible, most particularly its bright yellow liver. Also found was a daddy long legs with jaws that were bigger than its body as well as a fluorescent orange spider. While it is extremely rare to find a new mammal or bird species in this day and age on the surface of the planet, caves still seem to hold an abudance of secrets and new species of life forms. Quite like the deep sea, these caves oftentimes can be hard to reach -- making exploration difficult and challenging.
