Dead Hand Sculpt by Kanyon85 Dead Hand Sculpt by Kanyon85
Detailed submission of my Dead Hand sculpture. Polymer clay and acrylic paints. Stands 4.5" tall from base to head. Every piece is hand sculpted, without the use of a mold. Background painted in Corel.

Dead Hand, from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I wanted to do a 3D representation of this creature for a long time, since the image of its face stuck with me so well.

The black and red is acrylic paint, over an all white sculpt.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. That's strange for it to come up with looking up face tutorials though.

Further proof that OoT shouldn't have been rated E.

This is amazing and terrifying, and really makes me long for a playable claymation Zelda.

This guy was scary enough already... Splashing blood on him won't get him out of my nightmares, rather the opposite :sprint:

Og that boss :iconpokerfacelinkplz:

:iconexcaliburfaceplz: That boss...... I remember getting to him when playing LoZ:OoT 3D, and stopping half the time just because of 1. I didn't know what the fuck to do and 2. he was just my nightmare. I would rather fight ReDeads and and ok wallmasters were fun to kill as well as... ok except for floormasters, they annoyed me.

I admit I lol'd at first until I started fighting him. :I it was the strange nubby hands but your sculpt really put it into the more "holy fuck that shit is creepy" perspective. You have done a wonderful job of doing so.

Thank you, I had to interpret the lack of hands on it because of the low graphics, and figure out what it would look like in reality. I'm glad you liked it.

Mine too. They always seemed a step above something that should be included in a game rated 'E', which is one reason they stuck in my mind.

yeah i've thought that too, same with the redeads and wallmasters, that's a lot of scary things for a 9 year old!

The Re-deads didn't have quite the same effect on me, but the Wallmasters certainly did.
