Tardigrade on a Couch WIP

Finished Seated Tardigrade on a Monster Couch

Once again, I attempted to make the seated tardigrade smoking a bong.  I made a monstrous sofa for the tardigrade to sit on, but when I started trying to sculpt the tardigrade, I realized that water bear anatomy is not conducive to the seated posture.  I couldn't get it to come out how I was imagining it.

I was going to keep the sofa and save the seated tardigrade stoner for another day.

I cut the tardigrade into segments (head, three body segments, caudal segment) and rearranged them to produce this awkward creature.

I realized that a tardigrade seated on a couch probably should look awkward.  And so Monstrous Chair joined Seated Tardigrade.  It felt absurd enough without the bong and the tardigrade's arms are too short anyway.
