Polydactylis Gigantiform Minibust!

Hello all,

Today I'd like to share a small bust I sculpted based on a disease I made up, called Polydactylis Gigantiform. This is a condition which begins as an irritation to the pituitary gland which ignites growths of body parts usually begining from the cephalic region and branches throught the body through time. This condition is not necessarily fatal, but due to the fact that it crushes the frontal lobe of the brain, it debilitates the victim from normal everyday activites. It however leaves the hind brain intact so basic functions such as breathing and heart rate remain regulated. If monitored correctly, the patient can be "grown" into a human tree full of branching limbs and digits.
Here is a drawing  of a patient in the secondary stage.  The first new limb is clearly visible and other new growths can be seen bubbling up on the buccal region, a classic progression of Polydactylis.
So, in honour of this bizarre and yet fascinating condition I created a bust which I will cast in resin and sell at Monsterpalooza this year!
Stay tuned for the next bust in this series of a related disease, which I will keep secret until I finish the next sculpt!
