    Default Halloween Kid

    This is a piece I did for the October Shadows show and book. All the art from the show will be posted here (http://www.creaturefeatures.com/) at some point in the near future. The little sculpture is a print out from an Eden machine done at Gentle Giant Studios. It's from the same computer files as the print. I'm working on getting a better picture.
    Render done in Zbrush.
    Much thanks to Scott Spencer and Gentle Giant.

    Jim I hope you don't mind but I changed the levels on your image because it didn't show up well on my computer at least. It may be too hot now but I think it will read better as a thumbnail. I think this is a cool piece and people should get a better look at it. You need to get better photos of the print out because it was really impressive. If I get a chance I will take some , because I 'm sure the guys here on ZBC would like to see it.

    very cool concept, looks great! I am curious how you did the grass? I am working on a bearded character and I would like to apply that technique to it....

    Thanks Alex!
    Machine, I masked with a spray stroke, with the dots alpha selected, inverted the mask, and moved the dots , I think with the size slider under deformations set to the y axis. You could pull the dots with the standard brush too.

    Thanks Scott and Monkeymuscle,

    Scott,
    I guess there'd be moldmaking and casting costs involved and the cost of the initial print. I think it would end up being too expensive. I was thinking of figuring out how much a bronze would be. It'd be just for very serious collectors.
    Rick,
    I initially made the Demon transparent so it was even more faded into the background. I ended up with him just dark, to contrast with the boy, like he's just an imaginary figure. Of course in the sculpture he's very solid.
    Best,
    Jim
