Melting sphere with drip animation

I want to make a metal sphere that melts. I want the shape to be similar to this:

I am okay with making the material look metallic, but the dripping and incomplete sphere is the challenge.

Making it hollow and have the same dripping effect as the picture would be awesome. How would you go about this?

that won’t be trivial. it’s a fluid physics animation. what you could do is create one in blender and bake it: physics - Fluid: How to convert the simulation to a series of meshes? - Blender Stack Exchange but that will result in a ton of data.
