Lightwave for base meshes, ZBrush from that point on.
Tribute to Stan Winston. Until I delved into this project I never really realized just how many iconic films and characters Stan was involved with. You could list Predator, Aliens and Terminator and have said enough but the list goes on and on and on. Thanks for all of your great, inspirational work Stan, rest in peace.
Well, in case you hadn’t heard my tragic tale. My original goal was the complete shot of the predator unmasked. Hurricane Gustav slammed into Baton Rouge (my home) creating havoc in every way. My whole yard looks like it’s covered in downed trees. 10 days without power and having to scrounge for basic means changed my plans for this project quite a bit. At first I thought, “Ah well, good try Wyatt, better luck next time.” Then I stopped and realized, “Hold up, I’ve got a nice bit of work done, let me tidy it up and get it out the door. Don’t let all of that time go to waste.” So that’s what I did and my full character turned into a bust. So screw you Gustav!
This is probably the best thing in CG I’ve ever created. I studied quite a bit before the sports icon challenge and in that one I put everything into practice that I’d learned. This challenge was the advancement of all of that practice and even more study. I still need to dig deeper into polypainting and quite a few other topics but I’m loving the results so far.

Figured I might as well throw in the gauntlets since I did finish them.
Fantastic competition everyone. Coming to this forum everyday was the inspiration and motivation I needed to keep on truckin’ and as usual I learned a heap from everyone.
