So once again we got called in to do some FX work for Blake Brewer. But this time for a sci-fi film that would require a creature suit!

The hot glue on the suit glowed blue in the lighting on set. So I used it as a kind of blood for the creature.

Big thanks to everyone who helped out. Here's the list:
Creature concept by Blake Brewer and Hannah Stoddard. Creature design by Paul Maitland. Body Molding by Shawn Sieger, David Markowski, and I. Creature sculpt by Katy DeHay and I. Creature molding by Sarah Killian, Miranda Doerfler and I. And creature built and painted by Katy DeHay, Grace Lee and I. It was quite a team effort and it couldn't have been done without all of you! I hope I didn't miss anyone! Thanks again for all your hard work on this project!
