People's Choice: Michael Henrik Vedeler

Michael Henrik Vedeler - Nightmare goat
This is a work in progress of a zbrush exercise we got at my studies at westerdals/hk, which happens to be "create a monster". I figured why not mix the school assignment and this contest, and get 2 for the price of one! What you see before you will hopefully raise your neckhair.
