Very interesting, not seen anything like this done with a linecaster before!



I look forward to seeing the finished article, because it's not quite finished according to the artist:

QuoteMcMahon is excited that the piece is coming together but it's not finished yet. He said the elk will still grow about another six inches when he puts the hooves on, and he's planning to use the Linotype keys around the mouth.

"There are a lot of finer details that I want to put on the animal," he said. "The more intricate and detailed the components are the more impressive the final piece is."

However, now that the piece is in the 400 to 500-lb. range, he'll have to get some friends to help him lift it.
