Oh man! This guy has been on my pile for SO long! I don't like sculpting with clay, so I couldn't figure out how I would convert Rhino's feet. I finally came across what I thought might work. It didn't(!), but I was committed. I just cut off the Rhino toes, reshaped them, and glued them back on, retaining the articulation. A lot more cutting and sanding, then a thin strip of rubber around the bottom finished the feet. The snake helmet came from a dinosaur toy. I shaped it to fit, and repositioned the eyes more to the front.
It'd be great to hear your comments.

thanks,
Chris

this is awesome chris, top notch work. the rhinos texture does so much for him and the details you added really brought it home. I've been thinking about starting a serpent society myself and I think you just wrote the official puff adder recipe.
