I was pleased with the degree of thinness I was able to achieve in the limbs and antennae of my Violin Beetle, and I wanted to do another design that needed extremely thin features again. When searching the internet for "spindly insects" most of the results were spiders, but I did find this guy. I loved the unusual leg structure and decided to design one.
