i. Making Leviathan by LDN-RDNT i. Making Leviathan by LDN-RDNT
Leviathan's design was inspired from the description in Job 41, which suggests that the creature is most likely to be a crocodile (a gigantic one that snorts out fire), but Leviathan also means whale in modern hebrew. So i came up with a cross breed of a crocodile and a whale.

I think it legs need to be a bit bigger so it can hold up the rest of it's body for either land or water.

it is a most amazing design and it does fit many of the pieced descriptions of the beast mentioned throughout the bible.

Thank you for showing this from start to finish. I really enjoy your work. I want to get into doing more with polymer clay but I'm afraid to waste what I have. hehe :)
Keep it up!

your welcome, and thanks.

same with me, when i started sculpting with polymer clay. we just have to try and try. i think wasting the clay is also a part of the process. but i learned to bulk up the structure. :)

That is the most brilliant interpretation of Leviathan I have ever seen! I have spent quite a bit of time daydreaming about the creature, and only God knows how many times I've read Job 41...

On top of that, your craftsmanship is beautiful!~
Truly, this is a work of art!

thanks. Job 41 has been haunting me for years. Leviathan appeared in the modern bible a couple of times, but in Job 41, it is use to symbolize God's might, being compared to a creature of incredible size and strength, which is also contrary to some verses in the bible, where Leviathan symbolizes the enemies of Israel.

i do think Leviathan is a similar creature to a mosasaur or kronosaurus, or a lepleurodon.

I think the same. Though, the Lord speaks of it in a singular form... idk
