Mechanical Cerberus Picture

I am never good with descriptions...I was not even going to enter the contest honestly. I am very hard on myself when it comes to my art, I am my own worst critic! There is a lot about my sculptor I don't like and I wish I could redo, but instead of criticizing myself let me at least give a brief description of my creation...

As the name suggests, the design is based off of the mythological beast. Though with this 3 headed dog, all 3 skulls are a different size and shape since the machine is made from spare parts...well each skull had to have come from a different dog, right?! If you ask me no two dogs are alike, just like people! The middle head is equipped with a Flamethrower, the tank containing the gas supply is tucked within the beasts chest! The chain-like tail has a sharp rusty kitchen knife attached at the end. Only the two outer heads have jaws, and if you look closely they each only have half a jaw corresponding to what side the head is on. The back legs are equipped with hydraulics, for if the dog can't jump what good is it?!

I put a lot of heart into this project, and I still hate it! I can't even begin to say how many hours I put into it. The majority of the sculptor is made of Super Sculpey clay. I did use some junk jewelry, toothpicks, wire and plastic rhinestones in the creation of this hound...
