DOOM Revenant sculpted with a chainsaw

To celebrate DOOM’s launch today (in this timezone), Bethesda has sent over video footage of the creation of a Revenant sculpture carved via chainsaw, the most delicate of artist’s tools.

Champion Australian chainsaw carver Rob Bast spent 150 hours on the 8′ sculpture, which will be on show from today at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Federation Square, Melbourne.

“The chainsaw is a key part of the DOOM Marine’s arsenal and using his own saws, Rob has painstakingly recreated one of DOOM’s most fearsome foes in the form of an incredibly detailed sculpture made entirely from recycled sustainable cypress wood,” Bethesda said.

Well, there you have it. Video games.

DOOM launches today (or tomorrow for US types) on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
