Working for Spectral Motion and for Guillermo Del Toro is always a pleasure for me .
As a fan of Guillermo and Mike Mignola's Hellboy I was thrilled to be involved with both Hellboy films .
For Hellboy 1, some characters had a base design laid out for their look, some did not. Both scenarios called for me to do a lot of paint design to come up with the final patterning and "skin" tones for some of these creatures.
Sammael kept me very busy, but I also sculpted components for and weathered Rasputin's glove, painted giant tentacles, Sammaels stinger and maquettes.
In addition I was asked to sculpt a maquette to help figure out a sequence of Hellboy fighting the Behemoth from the end of the film .
HELLBOYI II -
It was great to revisit the worlds of Hellboy for the sequel. The amount of creatures and creativity for this film was massive.
On this film I did some creature suit co-sculpting and a lot of paint design . My main responsibility was painting Mr. Wink, King Balor, Prince Nuada, and I co-painted on the Bag Lady creature and the Cronie Troll
Hopefully a part 3 is in the works, I would love to work on a full trilogy
