Stream invertebrate ZBrush doodle

This started as a doodle I created for a demonstration I did for my Creature Sculpting Class at Gnomon. Kind of continued to play with it and did a render in Octane for Maya after a quick bit of texturing in Substance. The basic concept is that it demonstrates sexual dimorphism in a fictional creature. The female is the larger part with the legs, the male is the small blue critter with the freaky fangs. once they couple the female attaches to a twig underwater and uses her hairs for filter feeding while she deposits eggs in the big sack at the top. That's the idea anyways.
