Zodd statue
« on: April 22, 2007, 07:29:43 AM »
So why isn't this thread in the Merchandise section? Because we're not talking about a resin statue. :zodd:





It was done by a student at the university of Chungnam in Korea, it stands in front of the library. Unfortunately I don't know the sculptor's name (nor technical details about the statue), but props to him. He made it as his final work for graduation.

I wonder what material was used to make that statue. The sculptor posted the work in progress on a well-known Korean online community but I missed it at the time and now it's gone.

I'm no expert, but it looks like bronze.

That's what I'm thinking too.  That's quite a bit of detail (and imagine the time it'd take to do it!  :isidro:) if it is metal.

That is nothing short of beautiful.  :guts:

I do wonder though how much flack the kid got from those who would object to having a larger-than-life snarling apostle standing outside the university library (and yes, those said people should be throttled).

Imagine the shock of being a Berserk fan and seeing that randomly while visiting a university. Man, I'd probably shit myself. It's really stunning. Makes me want to see even MORE large metal sculptures of Berserk characters.

If I saw that I think I would make a complete ass of myself and start screaming like a giddy 12-year old schoolgirl.... except you know... in a more... macho, manly way... like.... watching boxing... yeah.... *cough*  :troll:

Anyways, Zodd looks like he hasn't been taken care of! Some one needs to get the Brasso out and give him a good cleaning!

*is stunned in silence* Holy crap! God if I was driving down the street and end up going by that I'd either a) get into a car accident because I'd turn to stare b) or scream because I thought it was real from my hyper imagination. XD lol all joking aside I really love that! Thats really amazing. Though I'd love it if it was just a tad bigger *shrugs*.  :zodd:

LOL!!!  Good one, Handsome!  That one got me going.  Hehe.  It's funny cuz when I was scrolling down the thread, I was imagining just that :carcus:

But yeah, seriously, that's really awesome.  I'm curious to know more about the project, and how he was given permission to sculpt Zodd outside a university library!  I know back at UC Berkeley where I went to school, there's no way something like that would fly.

Thanks for sharing Aaz.  If you find out anymore info, please let us know!

Nice, I hope he make more.
Why in God's name would I wanna keep writing about characters whose central preoccupation are weed and dick and fart jokes? I mean, ya gotta grow man. Don't you ever want anything more for yourself? I know this poor hapless son of a bitch does. I look into his sorry doe eyes and I just, I see a man crying out. He's crying out, "When Lord? When the fuck can your servant ditch this foul-mouthed little chucklehead to whom I am a constant victim of his folly, so much so that it prevents him from ever getting to kiss a girl! Fuck! When, Lord when? WHENS GONNA BE MY TIME?
