 Incredible Giant Crab Redux by VegasMike  Incredible Giant Crab Redux by VegasMike
I pulled an image I did a couple years ago from my gallery and gave it proper treatment...It's still kind of rough but I like this version much better! Painter Photoshop @6hrs

You know, I used to have nightmares about giant crabs...

Then I met Rarity. 

Nicely done.

A poem I wrote when I was bored:

The ground doth shake beneath my feet
A quake that cracks the very street
From the surly ocean's mouth
Comes a crab to dwarf a house!

The monster looms o'er city grand
Reaching across the bleached white sand
With claws! With claws! Like giant saws!
That snatch to feed it's gaping maw!

All jets are scrambled to combat
The great crustacean, but fall flat
Defenseless now, the city lies
Focused upon by huge green eyes!

Did it come from ocean deep?
Or made by man for profit reap?
Born from the depths or from a lab,
Here comes Giant Enemy Crab!
