Doom


 

To celebrate the release of Doom, Bethesda has teamed up Rob Bast?a chainsaw sculptor?to create a massive wooden statue of the game’s Revenant enemy type.

Hosted on Bethesda Softwork’s YouTube channel, fans can watch highlights from the process. Bast used the maquette from the Doom Collector’s Edition to base his cyprus sculpture off of, and it is incredible. Somehow he was able to capture all of the intricacies of the Revenant using the incredibly chaotic and whirring teeth of the chainsaw.

When contacted by Bethesda, the Australian artist was excited for the challenge.

“I’ve known it from [when I was] a kid,” said Bast. “Seeing what’s coming up now?it’s a pretty amazing project.”

Doom is available now, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
