Here is my rotting leviathan conversion, a WH40K Tyranid Carnifex that is pretty much straight out of the box but glued together differently. The challenge was in creating the "stomach" part of the body where it is coming up out of the water; I glued a group of plastic sticks from a sprue together and molded a lot of putty around it, then used the straw-like plastic that protects new brushes as a pin that drilled through the bottom of the base and up through the leviathan center. The rocks are a very soft plaster so I couldn't use them to support any real weight, but the thick "pin" seems to have worked well to keep it in place.
Sorry for not having any pictures of the conversion process, I didn't think of it until just now. This is the first model of my zombie pirate army that is finished so I will try and take more step-by-step pictures of the rest.

That thing does look interesting. Certainly a fair amount of work has gone into it. I'm not sure what creature it is though, as in what does it have to do with the sea? I would add some more bits an pieces to it to give it a more oceanic feel.
Also you should resize that image. At full size it is very hard to look at because it is so huge. This is still an interesting use of the Carnifex spures and is well done.
In the paintwork you could perhaps work on one or two details. The eyes are lacking any special attention. Look at some pictures of fish or crabs and try to paint the eyes to resemble them. I would do a little more work on the teeth too.
My settings on the forum (and browser if you open just the image) automatically resized the image so I didn't realize it was so huge, I'll get a new version up.
