Merc, Ubba Tubba, and Jd collab

Merc, Ubba Tubba, and Jd collab

I shaped the can and did the layered stock in which all the red pot dots came from. I also did the alien head. JD assembeled the rings and made the honey comb in the ring section. The ring sections are a thing that I've been working on recently so we just made a move on it. very time consuming. After the rings were assembled I added horns and then Ubba jumped in and made the sections of flowing archatecture including the stem in which the head sits on. Ubba also made the carb which I then added the eye and horns on. The pot dot on the bottom was made By Jd and I did the squish. All and all the piece is around fifteen inches and took us two days of hardcore grinding. Thankx for checkin this thing out!! P.S I also did the blasting and my crew did the taping!!
