I've been trying to be good and stay focused on the main project ( http://www.anunorthodoxhalloween.com/blog/wp-content/gallery/2018-buildup/C3BD7866-6DF1-40E7-98C5-997376B42AB1.jpeg?i=1209935753 ), but you know when we pulled the tree out there was no way I wasn't saving any interesting bits of roots that come out.

Well, my neighbor cut down a tree, and I suddenly had more limbs, so I just started attaching things that looked natural fits...I'm not sure what I've made or where to go with it yet. Which end is front or back, just have this ...THING.








And yes, that pile of rocks in the back is waiting for me to get back to work on the main project...

ANY KIND OF HORRIFYING HELLBEAST

You get some Great Stuff and plastic bags and a heat gun and you get that thing looking REVOLTING. Fangs. Fangs everywhere. Fangs from its shoulders. Fangs from its kneecaps. Bloody drippy fangs galore.

And we will all love you for it.

You might notice the ribs scattered about around it...we were wondering just where to put them before I give up for the night.

Only in concept. (and the pile of rocks)

I know what I'm doing with the ribs. That defines what I need to do with the lighting (because you KNOW my creatures are pretty much all about the lighting if you've followed me). I'm trying to figure out how to build a head within that lighting need...

I think I need some broom corn...

I LOVE these. Especially the top one.You can bet I'll be aping this general idea very soon.
Alright, I've just got to say. I LOVE your forum name, and when paired with the avatar, it comes off like something out of Dr Horrible, which is just PERFECT. TELL me you're working on the evil laugh.

Since you're interested in the general idea, and you're newish here, I'll point you at the tutorial to build that top one here: http://www.halloweenforum.com/tutorials-and-step-by-step/125072-monster-mudding-unorthodox-chimera-tutorial.html

Thanks! I got a lot of Dr Horrible comparisons from the younger crowd.

Below you will see me and my lab partner having a rather rousing round of maniacal laughter. I get pretty regular comments about my booming deep voice as it is (seriously, I get asked at checkout lines all the time "Has anyone ever told you that you sound like a radio announcer?") . When I decide to ham it up it get's a little out of hand :D

Thanks for the link! I discovered monster mud a while back, but these are awesome ideas for using it that I wouldn't have thought of.

Still just piecing things together as they seem to 'fit'. Only a very basic plan going in.







Now, I'm only posting this last one to demonstrate how often my ideas fail. I think we often forget you only got to get it 'right' once. This thing is clearly not right for this monster, but I'm wanting a similar shape. this failure taught me a lot about where and how I want the light, and therefore the head, actually.

(yes, you COULD have made this work in a "Thing" sense with some weird appendages coming out, just not fitting for the lights)
