You might notice there are a couple of things different about this sketch and the final. As I moved into the final I just wasn't feeling the top arms. I felt they were not commanding enough or allowed for the type of fine motor control a large devil bug would need to rule over his cotton harvesting minions. I changed them to be more arm and hand like and in the end was much happier with how they turned out.
