What should I name this gal/guy?

I made it from found bones of deer, raccoon, ducks and possibly something else.
The back is made from a deer skull, and two duck keels, one adult, one young. The neck is deer vertebra, and the head is a raccoon skull. Those are the most notable ones.

It's for now, a WIP, because I'm torn between it being a lochness monster-type thing, or a dragon, or what. If it ends up being a dragon, I'll find bits of bone acceptable for toes/wing bones.

And when I've decided, I'm gonna gesso the frontside of the canvas and paint what it may have looked like when it was alive.

Opinions either way?

Pretty cool, I've also made a creature from assembling bones. :) Have you done any more to this since you've uploaded it?

I haven't done any more to this particular one, though I've almost completed a second one!

Ah, very impressive!
How on earth did you get hot glue to actually stick to bone? For some reason I never dare it because it seems like it wouldn't want to hold

Hm it worked fine for me. But the end of the tail broke off a while ago, I don't remember if it was from the glue getting weak or something hit it hard enough.. Everything else seems to be holding fine though. I put together a skeleton that was a lot bigger than that with hot glue before, and the smaller parts are getting loose. I think hot glue would be better for the bigger or more porous areas and super glue for the smaller ones.

That's good advice. Maybe using hot glue to get the large pieces to stay in place and then using something like an epoxy glue to keep it stable would be a good plan?
I've been trying to figure out how to put a seagull skeleton together, and I've been at a loss for what adhesive to use. This might be my solution. Thanks!

At least they're clean thoughh. They're obviously not bleached, since they're stained, but they've all been washed several times.

I really enjoy sculpture and 3-dimensional works, but I have to kind of search for them, since the people I watch are pretty much 2D
I'm glad there are so many creative artists out there thoughh

also it looks more like it could have been a dragon to me because the eye sockets in the deer skull could be the bits where the wings would be joined on maybe
As for a name, I have no idea. Sorry :(

Whoa, this is so weird in an awesome way. It looks really cool sjhdhd. I'm really interested to see how it's going to look when it's finished.

I wish I could help you with an opinion on either a name or what type of creature it should be, but I've got nothing.

Thanks! I'm hoping it turns out well, and that I can find the extra bits I need! It's Much easier to find large deer femurs and such than smaller animal bones
