Ariel has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in using forms and techniques to represent the qualities of the subject matter. There is sound choice of materials and evidence of observation in the antennae and detailed legs but the body shape is incorrect. Proportion and perspective have been considered but the three-dimensional structure is lacking. A variety of colours has been used and Ariel has experimented with materials in an attempt to create texture and represent body shape. A sound understanding of the subject matter is evident in the inclusion of an appropriate habitat.
