A few weeks ago, I was itching to start another sculpt, but completely NOT Bat related. My Frankenstein Monster last year got me thinking I needed to do another monster, but nothing inspired me. Then it hit me---I want to sculpt Swamp Thing.
I don't know if this will become a full-blown costume, and if so that will likely be some time in coming. All I have planned right now is a wearable mask and a display bust.
I read the original comic series when I was a kid, and that's when I first fell for Bernie Wrightson's art. So my version will be heavily influence by his art.
Here's where it stands so far:
And a couple of closeups to show the texture so far:
So far I like it, but I'm going to keep trying out different textures. I could probably mold it anytime now, but it just doesn't feel done yet. I'll know it when I get there---hopefully!
