I have a bathroom to decorate (strange underwater creatures) and decided to make a wartskin frogfish (yes, there really is such a thing as a wartskin frogfish  Grin).
Walter is made out of Activ Clay (love this stuff, but it'll crack!!!). He's about 11 by 7 by 7 inches and painted with acrylics.

Here he is from the side. I do have to say, I'm a little proud of the way his eyeball turned out Roll Eyes




Here he is from the front:




And here is his fishy behind:



C&C's are always welcome!!!!
Thanks for saying hi to Walter!

He's gorgeous! He seems very realistic, and I love his eye.

I don't believe I've ever seen a real live wartskin frogfish but if you told me you just pulled this one out of the river I'd believe you! Cheesy

OMG that is absolutely incredible!!
I can't believe it's hand molded, it honestly looks like a it's been cast and painted it's just that good!
And you're right to be proud of the eyes Wink i would weep happy tears if i'd produced that Grin

sorry, gushing over Tongue

Walter is amazing!  His texture is great, and the eyes are really worth being proud over.  So neat!
