Oh the Monster I have made!
Hello everyone this is the final update! The monster is finally finished! I could have spent another year re-visiting perfecting this project but I simply do not have that time. Tomorrow I leave to serve a two year service mission for my church in Puebla, Mexico!! I am so excited to serve.
I want to thank everyone who contributed and supported me in this project. I accomplished what I wanted. Not only did this project teach me so much about the art and myself, but it also impressed the owner of Spectral Motion Studios, a professional creature effects studio. I am honored to say that I spent the last few months working at Spectral Motion working on their legitimate projects! I wish I could speak more about what I did there, but I signed a thick stack of confidentiality agreements. It was one of the best opportunities in my life!
Here are a few final pictures of the photo-shoot I did with one of my best buds, David Talley. He is super talented and we have a blast working together. Look him up on flickr, he is spectacular!
Thank you everyone for all of your support and help!
