so i got this idea one night when i couldn't sleep and i was finally able to get it together and make it.
i wanted to make something where it looks like a bird is hatching. but all you see is the legs coming out of the shell, not the bird itself. the idea is that you see the shell, and imagine what the bird might look like based on the design on the shell. so here's my first in hopefully a series:



i'm also giving each one it's own scientific latin name. that's what's in the label on the block. i found a scientific name generator so i have it generate a name, then i take some descriptive words about the particular hatchling and translate them to latin and change up the generated name with that.
i'm having loads of fun with this!!
hope you like!  Grin

UPDATE:
here's the latest one finished

Orbiselanguis Longirutilus

I really like this idea.  I would be interesting to see what you could do with other animals hatching out of eggs with only their legs showing, eg, dog, cow, elephant, etc.  Very neat.

Very cool!  Are those painted eyelets on the second one?  Especially love that you're assigning them scientific names and "mounting" them for display.  Hope you'll continue to post as the collection grows.

I like who zany/creative/fun/offbeat these are.

I second the good idea to think of other bizzare hatchlings - maybe since they have made-up names and made-up shells, they could have made-up legs!

Very cool!
