This was a request for a Professor Lupin-esque (from Harry Potter) werewolf, based specifically on this drawing:

Here's the finished piece:

Luke - thanks!

Yeah - took me a little while. Faster than some of my other large figurines, though. There's a new technique I'm applying to the metal shaping, and it's coming out very well.

Came across this in a google image search - interesting work. I don't know if the presence of the beads of weld is something you particularly like, but I've had a lot of success when doing sheet metal figures in blending the welds into the sheet. Just use an angle grinder and almost any attachment (either a flap wheel or a standard grinding disk work best), build up the weld and the area just around it, and blend the bead into the rest of the body. It results in very nice, smooth, organic, natural figures that feel a bit more biological/realistic than the non-blended counterparts!

Dillon - thanks for the comment!

In fact, the "rough" look is intentional on this and other pieces that I've done; my clients have expressed a preference for this specific style of figurine.
