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.

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 .

This is so beautiful! Would there be any possibility of me using it for stock in a photo manipulation? I would give credit of course!
