Sometime ago I started a base for a swimming monster I had sculpted. If you missed that post here is the link to it: Blacknick Sculpture: Creating A Base For A Sculpture
This sculpture was inspired by my love for the Universal horror film The Creature From The Black Lagoon. As a kid I was so taken with the Gillman suit! Frankly I think that suit stands up pretty well even by today's special effects standards.If your not familiar with the movie here is a cool website with some photos and a quiz on the Gillman:The Gillman's Movie Trivia
This past week I've been trying to finish up work in progress before I start on something new. Which led me to painting my swamp monster sculpture.
It was pretty straight forward painting. It was done by brush with opaque and translucent acrylics. I used a lot of dry brushing to bring out the scaly skin texture on the beast. Though I did break out the airbrush for tipping the fins and for shading the back of the swamp creature. I hope you like him!
