ok, so the creature from the black lagoon is one of my top 3 favorite movies and ive always wanted some props from the movie but have never been able to find anything untill about a month ago when i found a creature mask that was an afordable price for me so ive been waiting for that to arive but a few weeks ago i was talking to my girlfriend about findinf the fossil hand to go with it, but after hours online searching for one all i got was a few pics of some ohter people had made but nothing for sale. everyone knows last weekend was dragoncon, and at the arsenal models booth (i know that theyve been known for recasting and not manny people like them) imagine how excited i got when i saw that they had a creature hand?! there was no way that i was giving up the oppertunity of getting one so here it is as i got it:
and as good as the sculpt was, the paint job was lacking.. so i did a blackwash and tuched up a few places and am really happy with it and its now one of my favorite props. here it is partially done:
and here it is finished with some cool lighting:
hope you guys enjoy!
