I was inspired by this Feng Zhu sketch of the grasshopper. I find it bit mechanical, and I like the form of it. I wanted to go a bit further and to create a very detailed spaceship or more mechanical thing.

So I started modeling it in Sketchup.

Expanding and rotating „leg“

Insides, 3 floors

More details on front

Turret on head…

But the legs didn’t contrapted as I wanted them.
