"The Next Step for Man"

"Man has always looked to the greater creatures for his inspiration. The nobility of the eagle, the strength of the bear, and the majesty of the lion. But in a time when bears are taught to balance on balls for our amusement, we build machines to soar like the eagle, and we shoot lions for sport, we should instead look to the so called lower creatures for our inspiration.

Man is now the greatest threat to man. Would it not be better to look to an organism that exists peacefully with all others instead of one that preys upon them. The humble fungus lives in perfect harmony with the rest of nature. Should we not try to emulate how it lives in our modern world?"
       - Professor Emil just before being expelled from the Universiteit Gent for experiments against     God and Nature

The intermediary step of the fungoid evolution a horrible human/fungus hybrid.

Another fungoid this time in the early stages of transformation. So far these guys have been really fun to sculpt and I have ideas for several more. I want them all to be different looking as the transformation process is chaotic and no two end up exactly the same. Since they are basically zombie like creatures I'm going to borrow a lot of zombie archetypes from videogames and what not to flesh out their ranks. I already have a big juggernaut guy, need one that blows up, and the fast and deadly female one. Also coming up are the mysterious fungoid slavers, the puppet masters behind the scenes.


  1. Nice work! Love that little dude on the end best of all!


  2. Thanks! So far he's my favorite that I've sculpted.
