    I was worried that you had fallen off the face of the earth - it's good to see that you're still around and making progress on this guy. As always - it looks just fantastic. (Although, you might want to suggest that he get some crest or some colgate or something :D)......

    That is incredibly awesome. It's going to scare the crap out of people if they're not expecting it.

    This is absolutely amazing work!
    But really, can you explain why your not doing this kind of special effects for a living?
    Would you want too? I think its a crime that someone could be so good at something and not be paid for it!
    Back on topic... simply awe-inspiring! What are your plans with the case and hardware? And again what things is the monster gonna say? Does he have a name?

    You might have covered it in a previous post but I missed it if you did. How much of your creature's face and head do you plan on covering in hair?

    Back of the head and the sides ,About inch around the face. Then the punched hair . Kinda like a ape, Just the skin Being 100%, 35 to 40% of the skin will be cover with hair.
    Thanks

    Now you've done it, it looks a lot less scary with a mullet :hehe:

    Seriously though, great progress with the beast and also the videos you've posted are really showing how the head works.

    Also one question, is there still going to be a computer in there somewhere or have you left that idea behind?

    Always cool to see the progress on this one.

    When I get closer to the face the hair will be punched. This thing will be very hairy.

    Will be the floating head above the case.
