"Wise one" Monster Suit
This is a monster suit that was created with a group of fellow FX artists. I was the project manager in charge of the build and insuring that it was built to specifications and was of the highest quality possible. I sculpted the head and portions of the body and back. The upper body of the suit was moulded in fibreglass and cast in foam latex. The hands are also foam latex and a latex makeup build was done on the arms during application. The legs where sculpted by myself as a miniature to be digitally added to the suit in post production. The suits base paint job was done by our makeup artist and then handed over to me for final airbrushing, detailing and hairing. The result was a great monster suit build of a unique never before seen creature known only as "The Wise One"
The Chupacabra has always been a creature that has fascinated me so I have finally made my own version and concept of a real life ChupaCabra.
A manatee was needed for a visa commercial shoot and the time constraint was very tight, Ron Stefaniuk of Stefaniuk FX was in need of a good team so volunteer students, including yours truly from Sheridan Colleges special effects program came to lend a helping hand. In 9 days we gave birth to a life-size manatee with hydraulic movements, several fellow students plus myself helped to shape and sculpt the animal, mould and core it as well as hair and assemble it. It was a very difficult build with very long hours but it was a great learning experience or myself and all those involved.
