Artichoke Lamp - $4.75

I did this for the Awake class. Yes, I have been finished with that thing for a year, but for some reason they've revived it and are encouraging us old enrollees to go through the material again and make new stuff.

You can make a bug look beautiful. And immensely threatening. Well done, great texture work.
