Icons of Doom Assemblage Sculpture: BFS

If you thought the Doom cover art diorama was awesome, check out John Hite’s Icons of Doom. The sculpture, which Doom fans will recognize as the final level in Doom II, is partly made of found objects. But its most eye-catching pieces were custom made by John, including the 22″ wide recreation of the game’s final boss.

Jason didn’t originally set out to make the 25″x 21″x 7″ sculpture. Back in 2004 one of his friends gave him a Cyberdemon figure. After painting the toy, Jason “wanted to build an environment for the little cyborg.” He makes it sound so simple. Or perhaps he means he wanted to have more fun with the theme. Jason used old items like action figures, circuit boards and even dummy ammo, but he also made many of the items from scratch.

He cast the boss out of a silicone mold that he made just for the piece and sculpted the other parts such as the Cacodemons, the hearts and Doom Guy’s head.

John’s promo video gives a better look at just how awesome it all turned out:

The paint job is wicked, such polished gore. Head to John’s website for more on Icons of Doom. You can see it in person and even purchase it for $6,000 (USD) at the Copro Nason Gallery in Santa Monica, CA until 11/8.
