Making Friends


My Piranha Plant, her baby and a few friends (Paranoid Carrot and Green Thumbs).

In creating the mother, I based my design on this question: Had it been based on a real living plant, what would it look like?

For the baby, I followed the exact same steps except I applied softer textures, brighter colors and a teething mouth.

I used clay, a strengthened wire skeleton and a special mix of acrylics to get the right appearance of flesh (particularly the inside of the mouth).

This is amazing i wish you was on newgrounds still.



This is going to sound strange, but I'm giving this 5 stars, even though I didn't give the actual entry about it the same rating. I think it's because it just works better as an art piece. You really have shown off art here by making it a real photograph. You are so freaking awesome with this. A lesser man would have made a Photoshopped picture.

There are so many wonderful details in this. There's even a carrot and two green fingers poking out from the ground. It does seem like what a piranha plant would look like in real life! A pity you weren't working on that crappy live-action Mario movie. I think the teeth are probably the best feature. Congrats to you on your masterpiece!

I thought these were creations from spore by looking at the thumbnail.
