The first thing I ever rendered in Bryce 4. It's an updated version of an old pic included among the first batch ever published here. This version was submitted March 9th 2001, so all comments older than that apply to the previous Arachnid, dating back all the way to when I joined this site. Inspired by the Arachnus Cybrid from Sierra's CyberStorm strategy game.Arachnids are artificially intelligent creatures roaming the deserts of post-apocalyptic Earth. They use organic materials as fuel, flesh and ammunition, converting even human tissues to more useful substances, such as the bio-crystalline fullerenes that make up its armor along with dense ceramic plates, disturbingly meshed together. This is one very deadly creature, a new form of life with the potential to out-evolve the last surviving humans of the wasteland.
