green iguana sculpture


green iguana sculptureThis sculpture is a little different from what I normally sculpt because it’s just the head of a green iguana and not the whole iguana. But what better way to focus on detail? Maybe I went a bit overboard but it was a lot of fun creating all those different surface textures. He’s pretty much done though I might do a bit more blending.
In the “finished…a few more liberties taken…but, but…I’m an artist” category: green iguanas have a white photosensory organ on the top of their heads called the parietal eye. I simply didn’t realize this while I was sculpting so I missed out on including his cool “third eye”. I did find some informative sites about green iguanas; Wikipedia and National Geographic.
