"Kong" This scratchbuilt robot on a Sunday evening is becoming something of a tradition..

Fun weekend running the Gibbet FX Intro to Scratchbuilding course.Two great creations from the students.A steampunk-style insectiod machine and a bat-sh*t insane post-apocalyptic car!

"DODO". Quick little robot build this one as I wanted to keep the design really simple.Spent more time on the weathering tbh as I wanted it to look like it had been standing abandoned in a field for years.

"Falstaff". Another weekend,another scratchbuilt robot. I'm beginning to think about doing a book!

"Scrapper" Another wee robot I built scratchbuilt from bits and bobs.

Fun weekend running the last "Intro to Horror & Gore Makeup Fx course " of the Spring. Went a bit Frankenstein on this one! Roll on Summer and the all new courses!

"Frankenbunny".Sculpted this wee guy as a demo model for the last GibbetFx "Intro to Creature Design course ".Finally got round to giving it a paint job.It's ALIVE!!

HERAKLES Mk 1 Power Gauntlet. Scratchbuilt wearable piece.I imagine that the old Mk 1 had some serious design and user issues and was swiftly discontinued..

Boy! I'm pretty knackered! The inaugural 2 day course "Intro To Creature Design " went pretty well. Sculpting,moulding and casting.Dang! That's a lot to cover! Nevertheless,fun is inevitable.

"Tommy Tin".Scratchbuilt this WW1-styled combot from bits of bionicle and assorted greeblies and junk.

Vac-suit astronaut. Scratchbuilt this around an old action man figure so possible for stop motion animation too.

Popped out to the Filmhouse today for a quick bite.

"Jen's Jalopy".Scratchbuilt this wee bayou skiff from junk after finding this action figure in a charity shop.She looked like the kinda girl that would build her own vehicle from scrap.

Scratchbuilt this wee robot from junk.Bit of practice for the forthcoming GibbetFx courses on building Sci-fi models and props.

Picked up a rather cool gladiator figure from a local charity shop.Paint job was a bit crappy though so gave it a bit of a "makeover" and added some leather strapping as the armour seemed to defy gravity by just clinging to the fella.Think it looks rather nifty now.ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!!!

Ouch! Dangerous work teaching sfx makeup!

Another great weekend running the Intro to Horror & Gore Fx at GibbetFx. Bloody impressed! (Literally)

Creeping zombie necrosis on the GibbetFx Intro to Horror & Gore Makeup Fx course.Next one 23 & 24th March!

Made these creepy standing stone props for a film many years ago and now they hang in my hallway.Thought they looked pretty cool caught in the low winter light yesterday.

Had a great weekend with the Gibbet Fx stall at Capital Sci-Fi Con.A big shout-out goes to Keith Armour who runs this fantastic event and Lili,Ali,Aaron,Brian and Gill who helped field the hundreds of questions from attendees. Special thanks to Lili for enduring the prosthetics too! Can't wait till next year!

Various concept sketch sculpt of Galactic denizens.

JOD MANTO.Alien drug-dealer.Another wee sketch sculpt I did which started channelling the spirit of Steve Buscemi.

SISTER OPHIDIA KOI.Another wee creature maquette I did which also had a cheese- based origin..

MUDD GUMM. Alien redneck.Finally cast and painted this wee guy.Some of you may recall he was sculpted from the wax from a babybel cheese.

Blimey! That was a pretty full-on week on our 6 day silicon prosthetics course! Face casting,cast correction,re-moulding,sculpting flat moulds,creating form-fitting compression moulds.Well happy,but boy am I knackered..

Facecasting weirdness today.

"Spike" Went for a bit more of a cartoony style for this prehistoric/alien (?) Rottweiler. And yes,he can say "sausages"..

Ok.So around this time last year I was stuck in the boondoggle on a shoot that was called off due to bad weather. I was bored and the only available sculpting materials to hand were the wax from a babybel cheese and toothpicks.Sculpted this guy then cast him in plastic.Meet Chit "Flyboy" Cheevers,Starfighter Piolot Ace.

Kappa.A Japanese water goblin.Another old sculpt from some years back that I finally got round to casting and painting.

Lord Clement Varney-Croglin (Deceased).Bit of an old sculpt this one but finally got round to casting it and painting the damned thing..

Great weekend running the pre-Halloween Intro to Horror & Gore Makeup Fx course.Bonus points to start it off were a couple of application demos using some of the fantastic prosthetics by Nimba Fx namely the werewolf attack and Joker..

All in a day's work on the Creating Silcon Flat moulds course..

So what are you doing for Halloween? Fun weekend running the first of our October Into to Horror &Gore Fx courses.Still some places left for our one at the end of the month as well as our other Autumn courses.See the GibbetFX page for booking details!
