Thanks everyone! I'm pretty excited too. After I get the tentacles done, it will just be a matter of making his body and getting him balanced after I add the wings.
... and fitting him in the car. He just keeps growing and getting harder to transport. But that's a concern for another day.



I have the first layer of tentacles on. Just 9 more to go!

All 13 tentacles attached. Now I get to spend the next 2 hours working on homework, then 3 more finishing those up before I have to get ready for school. With any luck, I'll start the body tonight too.




I've got him taped to a barstool to make working on him slightly less awkward. I can sit under him instead of having to hold him upsidedown. I feel sorta like a mechanic working under him like that. (I won't show any pictures of that out of respet for Cthulhu and his cloaca.)

My inner Cap'n Nemo is wanting to stab that creature with a Harpoon (or electrocute it)... Good Job! Way realistic .

Thanks! Heheh. I kinda want to stab it too, but for different reasons.
Don't know if I'll get him done in time. There's no doubt in my mind that there won't be time for me to make Bigfoot or a mermaid and unfortunately my hairiest friend has work that day, so I think most of my half of my science fiction double-feature is missing. At least there's still the ET Phone Homecoming float.

Anyways... Here he is now. Head finished, but he needs color.



I don't know if I'll be able to finish his body before Friday. There was talk of turning him into a human puppet but... here he is in comparison to my little sister. I do not want to be responsible for anyone's chronic neck pain.



Here's his body thus far. Eh. I had a special helper put it together while I napped. I really don't think I'll be able to get the entire thing done and balanced in time, but we'll see.




Next up: Arms and wings.
I'll post when I can.

This is so cool, you are way talented! I hope you're able to get it done in time!

Thanks all! Sometimes it's nice to put that talent to the test. Everyone ready for a picture overload?!

Okay, Here was his headless body.



With head.



With the head, he began to fall forwards. No wonder.



Here he is after full-body paper macheing.


Something happened with the lighting on my phone. This isn't how green he is, I just thought the picture looked cool.

At this moment in time, I still have to finish the wings.


I was supposed to do that last night except I fell asleep working on history homework and as such am also running late for school right now. But, just because my priorities are so backwards...

The ET Phone Homecoming FLoat thus far:


I'm glad you found it so amusing PMI! So I added that too.

Okay. I've got 5 more hours to highlight his body, fix the balance, and finish the wings. Wish me luck.
