Bug Face-Off by deskridge Bug Face-Off by deskridge
Time for another entry in my series of art featuring the stag beetle. In this case, it is a scene of conflict on the forest floor. A reddish brown stag beetle has come face to face with a brown and yellow scorpion while crossing a mossy, fungus covered stick. It's the classic bridge showdown, only with bugs. Who will back down first?

Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!
Daniel

P.S.
