Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath

It's notoriously difficult to find one of the Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath when you need one, so Richard Svensson made his own. This detailed build log shows the creation of an articulated stop-motion puppet from the initial sculpt to finished figure. His technique for creating flexible tentacles is something I'm going to shamelessly steal.

I have used the string/yarn and latex/neoprene trick several times. It works really well. I usually use liquid neoprene and most of the time I will do a layer paint on the neoprene and then do a second layer.. I find if you build up the yarn layer to thick and then try and add the neoprene it is hard to get it to enough one to get to the center layers.
