WIP Dagon idol
« on: November 25, 2014, 12:27:35 PM »
This will probably look a little confusing until it progresses and gets painted! This is an idol to Dagon poking out of the low tide sands . It is purposefully meant to look like something that has passed through aeons and many cultures, human or otherwise, with each culture adding or repairing to the idol.  Mounted by the innsmouth ancestors on a pillar of oddly non-terrestrial bricks, it is comprised of African style wood, alien metalwork, mummified fish skins (think: Fiji mermaid) a small ragdoll of human aspect and (when I've sculpted it) a sharks jaws strapped to the idol surrounding the rag doll.  A little bit of Kermit influence too ;)

Very inspired idea and some great execution thereof, I'm suitably impressed. Even more impressing when you see it from the back, too. Looking forward to seeing where you go with this, and thanks for sharing.

Looking cool so far.  Is this going to be for yourself only, or do you have plans on making it available commercially?

thanks for the kind words :)

I just started making it on a whim after I had a pile of offcuts from the bases of some cheapo PVC minis.  On a whim I super glued them randomly as a pillar and thought "I need to put a weird gnarly idol on top" and the image of this rickety collumn and a dagon idol poking out of low tide popped out.  It kinda developed as I sculpted, though I knew I wanted to reference the classic pope/fish hat and cape of the historical priests of Dagon.  This swiftly followed the notion of implying many cultures having owned the idol (and a need to try and get some 'uncanny' feeling into it). 

Hadn't planned any commercial release - I have never cast a sculpt myself,but what little I have read up on tells me this may be hard to get a single mold as it is, with out breaking it down into parts.  I'm no expert though :)

I kind of figured the same as far as casting goes but I don't know much about the subject.  Either way, very cool and I look forward to seeing it when it is completed.
