The remains of this thing would make an awesome weapon. That texture you've got on it is awesome, particularly on the pink tentacley bits up front, though I have nothing bad to say about the patterning on the spikey dark bit.

Well, it seems that Arkarua can now be ruled out as being the "ancestral echinoderm"
Reply
:iconntamura:
NTamura Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
Well at some point, echinoderm should have switch from bilateral to fivefold... It's unclear what Arkarua was.

In my opinion, Arkarua was probably a five-fold trilobozoan. After all, it has no other echinoderm-specific feature (i.e. stereome plates)

NTamura Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
Mmh... how do you turn a threefold symmetry into a fivefold symmetry?

avancna Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Repetive polyploidal accidents, perhaps?
