    Fantastic.
    I think I should celebrate this day when there are so many good models that you made as a holiday.
    What you did was definitely worth it.

    Really great job, i love the twitchyness of the stand animation and the movement of the mandibles. The glow around its eyes is also a nice touch.

    Regarding that walk animation though, i think you shouldn't be afraid to incorporate more motion to the root position of the character. Right now, its body stays perfectly centered throughout the cycle, whereas in real life it would probably sway a little from side to side, or bob up and down. In almost every animation, you always want to ask yourself - "how can i incorporate more motion into this?" - Even if the action portrayed in the animation is supposed to be subtle and careful, it is important to add some movement to every limb, if only a little.

    Duuude - I'm lucky I could make all eight legs move and look vaguely normal as-is - incorporating abdomen motion on top of all eight legs is a bit beyond the work/skill level I'm willing to do without being paid xD

    It's a hobby, I don't like getting frustrated with things I do for fun :<
