This is my second submission for the contest- the Demogorgon from Netflix's "Stranger Things".
As with all my sculpts, I videotape them and do a timelapse for my Youtube channel, LoreCraft. Below is the timelapse, as well as some pics of the sculpture itself:

The majority is viewable in the video itself, but it is an entirely handmade creation. I made the teeth all by hand using translucent polymer clay (think it was fimo or premo, the sculpey knockoff they use here in the UK). The face "petals" I used an aluminium mesh to provide support, and anchored them in with armature wire. The core is styrofoam, paper, bubblewrap. The rest of the sculpt is primarily the same nylon reinforced, air drying clay I use, NewClay and Claydium. I affixed the teeth with resin, and he's painted with Vallejo airbrush paints.
As with everything I've done up to this point, no moulds and no casting - all 100% original, 1 of a kind pieces. I would like
to do moulds, but I often have to let people know that I am doing these in my apartment kitchen on a shoestring budget (if anyone is wondering why I do it the way I do). That, and the old addage, "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" seems to apply, as I've had good success using these materials, and it fits well for the videos I've been making. I also have little to no experience making moulds and doing casts (I am self taught at all this)... and I am not exactly enthusiastic about accidentally wrecking one of my sculptures by doing a novice mould job.
Anyways, hope you all enjoyed the sculpt! 3rd submission coming up!
