Iguana size by DannArte Iguana size by DannArte
This is the biggest commision I've made for a client here in my country. It's a Green Iguana, very common to see in the city of Guayaquil, in Ecuador. It's almost life size, and it's made of cold porcelain.

Iguana size by ~DannArte A suggester says, "When I first noticed the thumb, I had a moment of thinking 'what's a photo of an iguana doing in the sculpture gallery?' It's a really gorgeous piece of work, and amazingly detailed." Suggested by *RavensScar and *Rosella-of-Daventry ( Featured by LabyrinthCreations )

Alright. I'm in awe. The amount of realism you put into your work is downright phenomenal! I just can't imagine how much time and effort you put into each one of your pieces. How long have you been sculpting with cold porcelain?

Holy Fuck. you're good..
I had one of those when I was a kid. It reminds me of Rex, but somehow they are different. Maybe I had a different kind, cus mine was thinner and hade a longer tail.

I would love to see how you make those...

When I saw the thumbnail I couldn't understand why this got a DD, like many of the other folks leaving comments I thought this was a photo of a pet...and then I realized it was a sculpture and I was blown away! The amount of detail is just spectacular, I can't even begin to put it into words
