Man Makes Awesome BioShock Sculpture With Chainsaw

What's the only thing cooler than a life-size statue of a BioShock Big Daddy? A life-size statue of a BioShock Big Daddy carved entirely with a chainsaw.

For all the chainsaw has a home in the psychology of gamers, it occupies a decidedly different place in our minds than it does in real life. In real life, chainsaws are best used to cut wood - in games, we use them to slaughter enemies (usually zombies) en masse. Nor do we ever consider the chainsaw to be any sort of finesse tool whatsoever - a delicate touch? Are you kidding me? Who can worry about that sort of thing when you're surrounded by the undead?

Enter Jason-san, a (presumably Japanese) man whose hobby is dressing up in a hockey mask and taking a chainsaw - not to hapless teens at a summer camp, but to big chunks of wood. The man is a veritable artisan with his rotating blade, as seen in the sheer detail of this amazing Big Daddy sculpture in the video above.

The entire video is worth a watch from start to finish, if only to see how whole tree trunks gradually take shape into a slightly more recognizable figure. From there, the detail just piles up and piles up until it really looks fantastic at the end. If I have to pick someone to come with me to survive the zombie apocalypse, now I know who my first choice is!

Damn, I saw that yesterday in IRC... He seems rather scary with that outfit...
I wouldn't like to meet him if he were wearing it...
But anyway, he does have quite some talent. the end result is rather good.
Still, after seeing him make it, I feel uneasy...

"Lets go find an angel Mr. Bubbles!"

*whale noise*

Very creative.

All it needs is a little sister on its shoulder. Fantastic work... I want it.

Awesome doesn't explain this.... I wasn't entirely blown away until the blowtorch came out.

In the million years when they dig that up they be like "What The Fuck!"

Holy fucking shit, I'm glad Escapist don't censor profanities... Someone needs to create an official "The most AWESOME man ever born" crown, out of solid awesomeness, and immediately award it to this guy. Fucking hell, that was amazing....

"And, Squeeg children of Rigel Kentarus, archeologists on the extinct planet of "E-arth" have found this amazing discovery, proving that the people of this ancient world were once tribal, worshipping strange figurines and compact disks..."

Dear Lord, that mans legacy is sealed.

That is truly fantastic. Alot of skill to do somthing like that I bet. Kudos Jason-san!

So that's how awesomeness is made...

I wish one of those would come with the game's special editions.

That was amazing. I wasn't sure what to think of it until he used the blow torch. Then all I could do was stare, mouth wide open in amazement.

This is it. We only have one choice left. Give that man an internet. Now.

I'm blown away by how the sped up process was starting to make me believe that Wood has the same Sculpting qualities as clay.

It didn't seem like carving or cutting, it honestly looked like it was being molded into shape.

I also though at first that was ruining it with the blow torch, but after seeing it all at the end I didn't think it'd look so good.

Awesome doesn't cut it.

I'm absolutely amazed. I wonder what he does for a job?

Rex Dark:

I was wondering how extra is awesomeness made and there we go.

Blast it all, YouTube is telling me an error occurred and to try again later when I go to actually watch this video. Oh well, I have a pretty good mental impression of how cool it must be from the comments in this thread.

Oh no! He is murdering trees! Sick bastard is taking them apart, maiming them with a chainsaw.

I can't watch.

Hot damn!

'the strange creatures of this world left a series of unintelligable scribblings on the effigy, presumably the creators name. can any of you tell me what they called that occupation, children?'

(one raises a tentacle)

'a gigantic tosser, miss.'

The guy just created a Big Daddy out of a tree then made it better with fire. He is awesome!

Oh my gods, wow, just wow...that is absolutely incredible. That is true skill and talent.

Jason Vorehees, Camp Crystal Lakes Woodshop Gradute.

Given his outfit, I'm guessing he's just practicing for the day he can use his skills on human flesh...

Still, awesome sculpture.

That's pretty awesome!!! Give that person an award in epic art!

The only thing I could think of when seeing that is "I suppose everyone needs a hobby"

He's actually done a bunch of stuff like this, as is evident by his Youtube account. Of course, he's only become better and better. This is perhaps his best one yet. Now, I wonder what's next?

Very awesome! I wish I could do something like this :P

That is to fucking amazing :P

100% awesome

Only one word can be said about this... wow...

I am Jason Voorhes and I'm here to ask you a question: is a man not entitled to use a chainsaw as a precision tool in art?
NO says the man in Canada, it must be used to chopped down trees.
NO says the man in the zombie apocalypse, it must be used as the ultimate weapon.
NO says the man in Texas, it must be used to massacre.
I rejected those answers. Insteed I chose something different, I chose the impossible, I chose... RAPTURE!

2K should contact this man and give him a

BIG PILE OF MONEY!

For making something so awesome.And inspired by their game.

Given how they treat their own employees, i think they are more likely to sue him for infringing on their copyright.

Until then, i subscribed to his youtube for more awesomeness

Wood you kindly?
