Creature (hand for scale) by AMechanicalMind Creature (hand for scale) by AMechanicalMind
Creature is inspired by fiddler crabs, spiders, scorpions, grasshoppers, monkeys, bulldogs, and more.

I find it fun to do something straight from the mind rather than working from real images.

Made from many, many watch pieces, including gears, watch plates, spring barrels, watch winding stems, watch jewels, and clips. The lightbulb is a Christmas light. His spine is a watch band.

55mm front to back, 36mm wide, 25mm tall.

Really cool!!! :) :thumbsup:
I like to start making little sculptures from pieces of anything, but I don't know how to put it together because I don't have experience in metal work.
Did you have some advice for me?
Thanks.

This is fantastic! I'm creating a piece of jewellery in a similar way. I'm using resin and hardener to bind it all together, do you mind telling me how you chose to stick all these tiny pieces together?

I get the "hand for sale" thing quite a bit! Thank you for the compliment, and I can definitely see the spider from spy kids in there. Also, there is this old 80's movie called runaway with Tom "The Moustache" Selleck in it that these creatures always make me think about: [link]

I did make that, and it doesn't move on its own, but I can get it to dance it I shake my hand while it's on it. Also, not articulated.

You should really make rings that look like this. Something like that could sell really well and receive free promotion from sites like thisiswhyimbroke.com, thinkgeek etc.

AMechanicalMind Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
I'll look further into rings. A lot of the work I do, like this, is a bit to delicate for the hands, which is why I do a lot of necklaces, gearrings, tiebars, and cufflinks. I appreciate the promotion site suggestions as I could always use more views.

uhhh, tiebar and cufflinks. that would be great too.

anyway, great job man, this one look awesome, like a small future spy drone from hell.
