Cthulhu Sculpture

I took a break from working on my spider pit recreation to sculpt Cthulhu. I thought I'd share some work in progress photos with you.

Here is the aluminum wire/foil armature.

Here I've started adding clay. The bolts in the feet will secure the sculpt to the base.

The sculpt mounted to the wooden base. I'm adding Apoxie clay around the bolts to secure it in place.

Cutting the armature for the wings out of wire screening.

The two completed wings with metal rods added for mounting to the sculpture.

Smoothing the area the wings will attach to.

Blending the area around the wings with the rest of the body.

Adding the tentacles to Cthulhu.

Here is the finished Cthulhu.
