    :shock: :shock: :shock:
    My money is on those being Fink toes...

    Also, split upper lip on the Mountain Troll is a great touch, esp. combined with the fact that he's grinning. All of your rough and evil monsters are pretty damn happy, Rich!

    Very cool work Rich. I like the details on it, like the barnacles, tendons, and gills. It has a very Yamomark feel to it, and I mean that it a totally complimentary way. It definitely has your own gruesome sculpting touch all over it.

    When I was sculpting this guy I was thinking what if this was a rubber monster suit. I think the actor inside would be struggling to keep the head up, sweating and taking little wobbly steps because the feet are meant more for swimming than walking :)

    Insane!!!

    Definitely very different from how I was envisioning this dude's body to look like after seeing just the initial head shots... but this knocks it out of the park. Fantastic design and sculpting Rich!

    Spot on, I was both shocked and excited to see the body. Not at all how I pictured it but in a good way. I love that it has more of a traditional Goji like posture without looking contrived.

    ^Exactly; this one is a real surprise, Rich. Beautifully disgusting and well-realized sculpt; it's cool to see that you continue to master new textural tricks and detailing. This guy is going to provoke some strong reactions in his finished form. Well done, Sir!

    ^^ yes!! this thing truly was a surprise. I was thinking it'd be more humanoid type but this rules way more than I expected. I love the overall goji shape and the sea creature elements set it off. and then the fuckin teeth!! shit man. I can imagine this thing sitting next to some yamomark and zollmen for a CRAZY looking shelf.

    This is great, I like the idea of the double neck joint to allow 'nod' movement of the head.
    Sure can't wait to see one painted up...get to it Rich!
