I've been studying prop making for the last two years, recently graduated. So I have had the chance to have some pretty cool internships at various places.
But this fish here is probably the only project I got to do completely on my own. I made it for the opera La Bohme that was shown at Norrlandsoperan in Ume, Sweden. Directed by Kristofer Steen from Refused. ^^

It was alot of fun to make! It's made out of mainly styrofoam and lots of wood glue. It is supposed to be a frozen sturgeon and in the opera they try to cook it over a matchstick, with no luck Tongue


The finished fish. It was as tall as me ^^ (Ok, I'm pretty short, 160cm.)



The fish in progress!



Thanks for looking Cheesy

Your use of texture and color patterns really make the sturgeon look real!  Wonderful job crafting!

That's just wonderful, though I'm glad I don't have to try to cook it - with or without a matchstick.   Cheesy
