In the world of Dungeons & Dragons, Shadow Demon is Venger's spy and reports to him.

I've always loved the animated show and the character, so it was a no-brainer to do.. For this contest I thought I'd try something different. I sculpted the winding stairs and the top half of Shadow Demon's body. I connected the torso with the stairs and painted the lower part of the demon's body on the stairs, to create a "shadow" effect.

Sculpted from scratch and painted with several brands of model paints. Hope you guys like it and thanks for looking! Be sure to vote on all the other great entries!

As some have commented, the piece is outstanding in it's simplicity, yet still dynamic. 12th was a crime, haha...

I used to watch this cartoon all the time and I had forgotten all about him! Great ingenious idea for this!!

Glad you like it FastFreddie!

I gave it 5 because it really brought back good memories and the idea behind the creation of it and your execution of that idea really is what makes customizing fun

FREAKING BRILLIANT!!! One of the best thought-out and most creative custom jobs I have EVER seen. I realize that on the surface it looks simple, but seriously, I've been in this game for ten years almost and feel qualified to say that this is one of the greatest customs sheerly based on the ingenuity and design. It's a perfect piece. I don't usually post comments like this but when I read the part about you blending the torso above with the paint on the stairs below and then I looked at it again and saw what you did, I was completely blown away! BRAVO!!

MattHancock, your comment made my day and took a bit of the sting out of ending 12th. So thanks a lot for that!

This has to be the most intriguing & very interesting custom on the list.
ZoltanMotherwell - Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Vic, as always, you are too kind!

Very cool piece! The masonry is quite impressive. I would have liked to have seen some more images though, from other angles, to better visualize how you implemented the body/shadow design that you explained in your description. How convincing is the illusion without a black background and a front-on photo?
ZoltanMotherwell - Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Thanks Patraw! I was planning on updating it with more AND better pictures. Im usually late with entering these contests and this was really the best pic I had at the time.. So, look for updated pics soon!

awesome work....looks fantastic
it took me ages to work out what you done I had to re-read it again and again.... just thought it was a cgi/photoshop image of the shadow where it looks so good
ZoltanMotherwell - Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Thanks Meeko!

I'm fascinated by the technique! Does it look this good from different angles, or is the perspective forcing an illusion?
ZoltanMotherwell - Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Well, the Demons torso is just a flat,2D sculpt, so from the side you basically just see the winding stairs. So yeah, it kinda depends on the angle from which it is looked at. Anyhoo thanks for you comment!

One the most ORIGINAL thins I ever seen , can't hardly see it as a real object , it looks more like a drawing and that a GREAT complement , stuff (optical illusions) are not easy to do, my friend, VERY NICE JOB!!
