Giant Mantis

Submitted by tee.dubs
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Well here we are, finally. a big ol' mantis good enough to eat. Requested by Trillium, and i hope he enjoys it. Uses ingame textures and custom anims, 484 polys. Don't bother pointing out the terrible uv mapping, it was the best i could do with ingame textures that i could find. However if you have any suggestions about how to improve it, or would like to reskin it for me, or could find some appreciation for the job i actually did, i would be very happy in that case.
ENJOOOI. Credits would be nooice as it took some time to make.

--------------------------------------------
EDIT: Recalculated normals and fixed up the uv.
Special thanks to HappyCockroach and Zerox for explaining normals to me, and Cavman for vital feedback. THUNK YUS xoxo.
--------------------------------------------
EDIT2: Attachment points. (Hands right + left, Head, Overhead, Chest, Origin)
--------------------------------------------
EDIT3: Recalculated normals again, added an additive green texture over the eyes like thrikodius recommended, certainly looks better. THUNK YUW xoxo.
--------------------------------------------
EDIT4: Used oinkerwinkle's mdl-finalizer to recalculate normals this time, fixed the hole in the neck, and optimized using ghostwolf's optimizer.
