Tarrasque of Gaia

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Here's my biggest sculpting project.  The tarrasque is one of the major big bads of the D&D universe.  This guy normally sleeps under a tree called the Gaia tree.  If Gaia dies, the tarrasque rises and wreaks havoc.  He can be killed but he regenerates quickly.  He will only stay down if a new Gaia tree is planted on top of him.This tarrasque started out as a coat hanger, upon which great amounts of Sculpey were added.  The surface details were done with green stuff and some brown stuff (epoxy putty).  I didn't paint him, however--he was a project for my fiancé, Tim Green.  Tim painted him up real nice and is very happy about me showing him off.  The teeth are my favourite; they were also the most difficult.((If you're interested in seeing how he went together, and his approximate scale, my fiancé's website features a "Making-Of" page here.  Link provided with Tim's permission.  Beware the disaster that is our hobby table!  A cookie to anyone who spots something from the "Lord of the Rings" movies in one of the photos.))
