I've got another finished project. This is one I made for my son for his birthday (it's a little late). He loves the Asylum/SyFy movies and this is one of his favorites.

I took a shark toy from Toys R Us and a rubber octopus toy cut them up and combined them together.

Then I painted the whole figure. I've found that painting shark skin realistically is a real pain in the butt. I'm not 100% satisfied with it, but after 4 time repainting it I was happy enough to call it good.

Thanks for looking and as always comments are appreciated.

Needs a bad SyFy script wedged in its teeth.

Nice work though. Can we expect a Transmorpher next?

Beautiful! Just today my boy was asking me to buy him this movie at the video store.

My son thinks this is "very cool"

That. Is. AWESOME!! That was the greatest SyFy movie I've ever seen. And by that, I mean it was so bad that it had me rolling with laughter the entire time. But it's not supposed to be a comedy. But it was great.

But this figure is amazing... if you're son doesn't like it/want it, let me know!! :D

Pretty sweet/twisted idea, I'm sold.
With the left over parts you can make a Octopark.

was this based off that ridiculous movie on the sci-fi channel?? any how you did an amazing job of blending the two animals together its seamless to where you fused them together. bravo sir, bravo

You should share pics of it with Ralph Garmin on his Twitter page. He often shares it with Kevin Smith on their Hollywood Babble On pod cast. Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/RalphGarman)

Thanks everyone for the props.

This movie was great for all the wrong reasons. Sorry though he loved it.

Pretty sweet/twisted idea, I'm sold.

That's what my wife suggested also, although I like you name better than what we came up with.

I would like to take another stab at this. I had a few ideas for improvements while I was working on it. I'll keep you guys posted.

Was there a sharktopus movie on SyFy? I remember megashark vs. giant octopus with debra gibson but not a skarktopus movie. If it is a good as the MS vs GO movie then I can't wait to put it on netflix.

Any movie where 2 animals are fused together is just lousy. Especially if its a sci-fi original with REAL bad actors!

Ok, I know last time all I posted was the word "awesome" over and over, but I just needed to reiterate how truly awesome this is! It's just great work - perfectly fused and blended. Fantastic stuff!
