Piranha Plant Sculpture and Baby

Posted by Kalapusa - October 8th, 2009

Hello again Newgrounds! It had been a while since the last time I used Flash but I decided to revisit it to create a making-of video of my realistic Piranha Plant sculpture for youtube. The video proved to be quite popular (133,336 views in a little over two weeks and five stars) so I brought it back to its native format (with less of a loss in image quality in key parts). If you have seen the youtube video, the Flash version here ( http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/
) has two shots of my teething baby Piranha Plant as well, together with mama before it got it's own pot.

/* */
The Piranha Plant will be for sale on eBay soon, as will its baby version and a baby Audrey II. Stay tuned or contact me at kalapusa@aratamedia.com for info.

It was fun to sculpt this as I pulled off a few successful experiments to get the inside of the mouth to look just gummy enough. Took me a while to finish it, particularly because of the design choice I made for the mouth structure, but it paid off in the end. I wanted the plant to look as if it really existed and the Mario version was a simplified cartoon version based off of it.

Please send all inquiries concerning this original piece to kalapusa@aratamedia.com
I'm currently accepting commissions in various mediums.

Must have Baby Piranha Plant. It could go in my dorm room.

.....LOVE THIS PIECE OF ART!......but wtf is an evil carrot doing in the picture

Wow, those are both really great pieces! How much would they cost? And have you made any others?

Thanks! I have a series of plants. It's been my thing for the last two years.

You know, this would instantly be featured on the Art Portal if you decided to sumbit the pic - perfectly acceptable photography is that of sculptures which yours quite clearly is, especially with the Flash Video to back it up!

Submit it now, you know you want to!

Thanks! On it...

Yes, I do commissions, actually making an Audrey II right now but I can make another Baby Piranha Plant. Contact me at kalapusa@aratamedia.com for pricing.

Wow... I think you'd make a fortune on ebay if you'd sell more of these.
