Behind-The-Scenes of Banzai: Hardest of the Hard 2...

Here are some of the Behind the Scenes pictures at how my cover artwork Battle on the Barge for Moonstone's Buckaroo Banzai: Hardest of the Hard part 2 was made. Again, combining my skills as an FX artist as well as my love for film, I sculpted two very rough creature maquettes for reference. They are each about 2.5-3 inches. Also, my dad and I built a Gatling gun prop for Perfect Tommy to hold. Click images to view larger:

Above: My maquette for the Mantis-Rat-Man that wants to eat Reno, sculpted out of Chavant oil based clay.

Above: My maquette for the Scorpion-Rat-Woman also sculpted out of Chavant oil based clay.
