The Cave – Mutant Mole
All of the sub creatures within the cave had to have the same look as the main bat creature – including moles the size of large house cats. The consistent design theme was thin, translucent skin stretched over a weird rib cage, twisted pelvis and deformed skull.
This sculpture was created in Roma Plastilina in about 2 weeks and was based on an African mole and the back end of an elephant. The underbelly was actually inspired by my lovable Jack Russel Terrier, Lexi!
…and the final result from the film. Can you say “wow”?
