The Demogorgon

Sculpted by Nicholas J. Brown

Teeth.  So many Teeth.
    Huge fan of this series, as it revisits a more innocent and fascinating time in cultural and technological development. Many of us feel a sense of nostalgia about the 80's, even people that didn't live through it.  Synthwave/retrowave, 80's Night's being common at your local clubs, and an enormous re-emergence of interest in the era; the 80's are alive and well (much to my great satisfaction!).  There are many more 80's themed character sculpts I hope to get to, so be watchful in the future!
    The Demogorgon sculpt was an enormous undertaking that required a myriad of engineering solutions.  Like Darkness, he/she has projecting elements that require either strength or flexibility to ensure it doesn't collapse under its own weight or break upon nudging.  I am working with rigid materials only at this stage, so I opted to go for a reinforced structure, using aluminium mesh.  The teeth, I made every single one by hand.  It took many hours to make, and attach.  I sealed the entire piece in resin, to add further strength and prevent cracking.  He's massive, but I managed to keep the weight reasonable.  This piece would definitely require special shipping if sold.
