Mechanical Apoctopus No2 by monsterkookies Mechanical Apoctopus No2 by monsterkookies
In a future world that has been destroyed by humans, only creatures in the darkest corners of the Earth have survived. The Apoctopus learns to adapt in the depths of an ocean whose waters had been tainted with the bi-products of the nuclear industry, some several centuries ago...

Of course, like a modern day Octopus he has eight long tentacles, which intertwine with eachother creating a tangled mess of tentacle knots. Each tentacle is slightly different, with brassy suction cups and plenty of texturing. His face is definitely not that of your regular octopus, as he has had to adapt to his harsh environment. He's got a row of nails running down the middle of his head - for protection, of course. His eyes are black and glazed over with only the slightest glimpse of life in his pupils, and he breathes water through a three-port filtration mask.

He looks to be a rusted steel in colour, with blotches of gold, bronze, and antique brass. Although this creature looks to be made from metal, he is not - he is completely handsculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few metal findings. This piece has been glazed with a satin finish for a slight sheen and durability.

I have no idea how big this is, but it SHOULD be a belt buckle because I would buy it.

It's a clay sculpture, so I think it would be too delicate to put up with the abuse of being a belt buckle. :P

It has absolutely nothing to do with it, but I like sharing random things with people.

ALSO, very AWESOME. I love the gas-mask style of thing that he's wearing.
