    That was the first monster suit I wanted when I was a kid long time ago. Nice job.

    Thank you all! It's always been my favorite monster suit, and I've studied it allot and the construction of it and the methods used were pretty advanced for the time, and even by today's standards. I think if there were to be a remake like what's been talked about for years, the suit would be made almost the same exact way. And I guess that says something about how well it was made so long ago.

    thank you both!

    I got a lot done on the creature today, I fixed the puffiness of the eyes, put on some more scales, and started doing some more texture.

    Re: creature from the black lagoon mask sculpt

    thank you! ill have to search for KNB to see theirs!

    and im hoping in the next few years to get the full suit made, but it'd a HUGE project for me as ive never done a ful body sculpt! this is really the first sculpt ive ever done other than a godzilla head that i never really finished...

    edit: wow, i just watched the united monster talent agency trailer and it was amazing! i dont know how i havent seen that before! the creature suit looked amazing, and its really the only one ive ever seen made that was that good! (ive only seen 2 others and they were less than impressive xD)

    That is amazing - the first pictures were great and the levl of detail being added is fantastic. Such an iconic movie monster, if i ever finish my Vader, I need to work on my sculpting skills and attempt this.

    Wow! This just totally reminded me of "Creature Feature", which was a show that would play classic horror movies every Saturday afternoon when I was a kid. I remember that one underwater scene in the Creature from the Black Lagoon, where the creature is swimming below the female lead. I thought that was such a good, but scary scene.

    Great job on this!
