An Egg-citing Monster~!

Okay, so maybe not a monster, but what, exactly is this?

Its my rather rushed entry for the Massive Vodoo Easter Season Contest~! Seen here: http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.de/201...ouncement.html

I got my inspiration to make this egghead from the Deamon Eggs at http://www.wamp-forum.com/content.ph...ic-Easter-Eggs!

Unfortunately, the deadline snuck up on me and I had to scramble to finish it last night. I'm really not happy with how the tenticles and shell highlight turned out. I am happy how the blending went on the blue areas (shown below - be warned, my picture taking still sucks):

The crevices are there from when I cast it. I didn't make the plaster thin enough and a lot of air got trapped as the plaster cooled/hardened too rapidly as I was filling the hollow shell up.
Anyways, the contest was still a lot of fun to do and I tried to really work on my wetblending in the large blue areas. I wish I'd had more time, I'd have tried to blend the shell portions as well.

Please let me know what you all think - *all* comments, criticisms, and yodeling are desired and encouraged~!!!

    When I have time, I plan to go back and retake some better pictures or at least edit the ones I took to only show the egg monster.

    You are yolking, right? All this egg talk is starting to fry my brain and i'm feeling a little scrambled now. I think it may be time for me to eggxit this thread before anyone starts poaching my thoughts on the matter, and I begin to boil over.
