While staying with my cousin on vacation he and his roomates watched this movie. I'm not an anime fan. Anyways I wanted to make them some thank you gifts for letting me stay with them. I figured making the "ohmu" bug things would be a neat gift. I did some research and apparently when they're mad they have red eyes and when they're calm they have blue eyes. I made some impressions for the magnets to be glued in. Took me awhile to perfect the shade. In some pics they look all black, then bright dirty green, then a brown green. I mixed black, the "Peapod" shade in Studio Sculpey, and silver. I shaped the black blobs then layed strips of clay over to give it that ridge effect, then made the eyes with translucent clay mixed with color and after baking I painted them with glaze so they'd be shiny.

I thought from the thumbnail at they WERE botflies. Still, equally as nauseating. Mission accomplished right?  Tongue

Those are pretty super cool!  I really like all the detail you put into the segmentation and spiny bits.
