I AM GROOT #2

I made this sculpt after watching Guardians of the Galaxy. I have a huge amount of respect for the original creators of Groot, he looks so awesome in the movies! This is the best I could do, yet it still doesn't look anywhere close to as good as the one in the movie. It took me 14 hours to finish.
