Better Mantis Tomb Documentation - updated 3D model, photos

This thing is still surprislngly difficult to get good photos of. The Laowa 15mm macro has been super good for it thought. The shift comes out way better than using corrections in LR or PS. The model now includes more interior elements and textures.

Mounted Mantises - quiet for a long while

mounted manties for photogrammetry

I've been prepping more mantises for photogrammetry.  It's surprisingly fussy and I have to keep them in case to keep them from getting dusty.  Though to be honest the case came from doing makers faires.  Even the most attentive parents cannot manage their kids 100%.  One of those flies is actually mostly useless if you look at closely.  It got kid mushed despite their parents best efforts.  Not mad, just how kids are.  So into a case the subjects go.


I won't be posting a lot of finished for awhile.  Most of the stuff I will be doing will be for a large show come spring.
