Creature Creations: Part 4 - Final Creature

After many weeks of hard work, it is my pleasure to present to you...


Behold, these amazing denizens of the deep!

Watch as Dakkar struggles with the fiendish Herbert!

Notice the bizarre breathing apparatus on Dakkar's back!

Dakkar's first public appearance in Providence, RI.

More photos will be posted soon.

Dakkar was created during a six week course called "Creature Creation Workshop" at the Rhode Island School of Design, in association with the Big Nazo Lab. He is constructed of various types of foam, covered in a mixture of liquid latex and acrylic paint. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or to e-mail Baron von Fogel.

Creature Creations: Part 3 - Preview Continued

My creature is almost complete! All I have left to do is a bit of painting and detail work, and a brown jumpsuit to go underneath the armor elements. Though I'm still going to withhold showing a head-to-toe shot until I am entirely done, here is one of my early concept sketches. The finished creature looks somewhat like this:The colors will be slightly different, but this gives you a general idea of what he's going to look like.

These are the creature's hands. The finished version will probably have a bit more in terms of striped markings on the backs of the hands. The webbing between the fingers will also be a little bit darker.

The color on the "metal" parts will probably have some greenish copper rust elements or maybe some dark green spots of lichen.

Anyway, the costume should be done sometime this week, so I'll post full-body shots soon.
