I made this paste-up to inspire Oliver -not that I needed to; he's brimming with ideas for his mini-monster-epic!

Puppets by Request: The Monster From Beneath the Sea
This is a quasi-Godzilla-like monster I did for German amateur filmmaker and animator Oliver Gröbke. Initially he was interested in getting a good enough replica of the Beast From 20.000 Fathoms, but eventually decided to get a monster of his own design. I had pretty free reins while creating this puppet. I gave the monster human-like arms, that are bigger than they'd be on a real dino, so the creature can grab onto things properly while going on it's rampage.
