    That first one reminds me of those horror flicks where the bugs are twice of humans! The second one is too dark, though...can't see the grasshopper!

    P.S. (and this goes for ALL you impatient newbies)

    JUST BE PATIENT!!! You aren't always gonna get a response in the first hour you post! But more often then not, you WILL eventually get some responses!

    :)

    Thank you, and have a nice night!

    Heh, he waited 23 minutes, what more could you ask for?

    I think the detail you are getting is fantastic. Is there anyway you can put the little bugga (hahahaha -sorry) on an indoor plant or summat to make the surrounds more interesting and natural?
