Dan P Merc collab

Posted by Merc on 8/5/2009
 Featured by Lawson
 Nominated for Feature by CJ Freestone
Dan P and I have been doing a couple things and here is one of them. Dan did the horns and made the luster sections. I sculpted the head and did the bottom and did the assembly. The blasting and carving were done by me as well. There are more pics about to post from both of us including some assembled and blasted pieces by Dan. The image art is by our good friend Oden.
