Eel Walker by MarkNewman Eel Walker by MarkNewman
This is a personal project I've been working on for awhile now. I finally took it to the foundry today to get molded and cast in bronze. It's sculpted in oil base clay and stands around 18" tall.
Both the figure and the eel were sculpted separately.
I had to cut and paste the eel together with the figure in photo shop and erase the armature supports in this photo to show how the finish will look.

From suggestor: "The feel of the woman's walk along with the way the eel feels like it's floating beside her is so unbelievably well executed." Eel Walker by *MarkNewman definitely conjours the same impression when I look at it, the feel of weightlessness and fluidity. ( Suggested by RandyHand and Featured by Thebuild )

Interesting...I just took some photos of some chainsaw wood carvings where it seems the artist copied/replicated this design to life size.

Lol I just saw this at the park today too. Too bad the carver in CR didn't credit Mark for the original concept.. :/ Good thing the winning transformations on the shore entries don't get prize money lol

Gigantic pet eel huh, have you played metal slug 3? the opposing forces of that game has giant pet eels! and each of them have silly name plaques on their cavernous holes.

Highly amusing series .

All man! I really like this piece. It's so well done. I like the elegance and sense of movement. 
I would really like to own it, but it's too expensive for me. So, does the eel still have a support bar in the real version?
