The Midgard Serpent torso clay up and head update

midgard serpent artAs of today the Midgard Serpent sculpt has undergone almost two layers of brush up clay on the torso. I think 4-5 more layers will bring my wall thickness between 1/8" - 1/4".

The plastic eyes were removed and replaced with the clay eyes. The eyes will not be secured until the serpent's head is attached to the torso and Thor is place back in the scene. We what the Midgard Serpent focusing on Thor's mighty hammer.

midgard serpent artThe serpent's skin texture is still up in the air. I do not care to give it a scale texture. I prefer wrinkle skin look.
