About this creation
Well who new that Eddie Brock kept tropical fish?
Venom’s first host tried to alleviate his depression over Peter Parker ruining his journalistic career by keeping fish (I used to myself – they are very soothing). Unfortunately for the contents of his tank, when he returned from church one night with a little more than divine inspiration on his mind, they were affected too….
The largest fish, Venomous Toothysymbiosis, has to be kept on a constant diet of the smaller Spiderfish, Latin name Peterparkeris Photojournalis.
The Spiderfish has no discernable mouth…..
Little known fact: When preparing Venom sushi, EVERY part of the fish is potentially fatal.
Sorry it’s an abbreviated build but this round clashed completely with my one holiday this year (camping in Wales – very nice thanks for asking) and the celebration of my 10 year wedding anniversary too, so I had to prioritise. The big spider logo on the body (stepped jumpers) was a right pain in the bum to keep together and it would be fair to call the construction one big weak point but for the few nights I had to build I’m quite pleased. A tank, foliage and other things would have been fun – I even started on a Carnage Crab too but time was not on my side – such is life.
Thanks again to Thorsten and panel of judges for their time and effort. Good luck to Dave and Tim and our sidekick finalists too.
Score of 17. I too know the horrors of trying to build around a family schedule. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to manage what I have planned for VLUG's collab and that's almost a year away already. And ten years? Nice one man! creeping up on 15 myself (and the use of the word "creep" is approriate here hehehehe). Great build! ~ Chris.
Haha, this is a very funny and inventive build! All the fish are very well-designed (I especially love how the Spiderfish look so small and meek compared to the Venomfish) and the presentation is clever too. Epic tongue on that Venomfish, as well! Good luck.
Great entry! Finally I get to see what you and Dave were up to, and you didn't disappoint. I never would have thought of a venom fish, but it turned out very well--and I love the scientific names, hilarious and plausible! Good luck!
Stu, I bet that would be delicious with a slice of tiger(shark) bread :) All kidding aside, it's great to be in the finals with you and Tim, two true comic fans. Your entry displays your sharp wit and personal perspective (even from the way you shot the build). Great work!
