MOCOlympics Round 1: Signs of the Zodiac
"The 12 Signs of the Zodiac." You know... Leo, Scorpio, Gemini and so on. Choose any ONE of the 12 Zodiac signs and build a moc incoorporating that ONE sign into it. (in case you haven't noticed, you're only allowed to choose ONE of the twelve signs). No size limits. For my entry I chose Scorpio. Enjoy!
About this creation


According to Greek mythology the huntsman Orion was on the island of Crete hunting with the goddess Artemis and Leto. Orion made a threat to kill every beast on the earth, which didn't make Gaia, the goddess of earth, very happy. So, to punish him for his foolishness she sent a huge scorpion to kill him. Which the scorpion did be stinging him to death. And because of a prayer of Artemis and Leto, Zeus put Orion and the scorpion among the stars as a memorial of Orion and what happened.



First and foremost scorpions ARE NOT bugs they are arachnids, which means they have eight legs, like spiders.



Scorpions are nocturnal and find shelter during the day in the relative cool of underground holes or underside rocks. They emerge at night to hunt and feed.



The venom a scorpion injects into its prey is mainly neurotoxic and fast acting to grab a quick meal or to get away from predators. Of all of the scorpions known to man only about twenty-five are dangerous to man.



The venom of a scorpion is stored in the iconic scorpion stinger.






...


Hsssss...
AHHHH!!!! I DIDN'T KNOW HE COULD DO THAT!



All scorpions are able to penetrate human skin which delivers sharp painful stings and usually leaves a red mark around the area.



In countries around the world scorpions are considered a delicacy.



The sign of Scorpio is depicted as a capital 'M' with a stinger coming from the end.


That's all for now!

Nice design, though I feel that it lacks the cohesiveness that I enjoy. If it were denser I think it would be a more convincing build. Also, I suggest using natural light whenever possible to give realistic colour to photos. All the same though, a cool entry!

Quoting Stormjay Rider Scorpio, we're gonna have company! Nice entry, though I feel like the stinger is a bit bulky. Either that, or mine is too small.
I tried to get it to look as realistic as possible.(as far as bionicle pieces go) But I think I see what you mean. Good luck!
