Eel Walker by MarkNewman Eel Walker by MarkNewman
This is a personal project I've been working on for awhile now. I finally took it to the foundry today to get molded and cast in bronze. It's sculpted in oil base clay and stands around 18" tall.
Both the figure and the eel were sculpted separately.
I had to cut and paste the eel together with the figure in photo shop and erase the armature supports in this photo to show how the finish will look.

From suggestor: "The feel of the woman's walk along with the way the eel feels like it's floating beside her is so unbelievably well executed." Eel Walker by *MarkNewman definitely conjours the same impression when I look at it, the feel of weightlessness and fluidity. ( Suggested by RandyHand and Featured by Thebuild )

Very nice, the detail on the skin of the woman and the ornamentation harness bracelet, did you get it bronzed?
