I had a shorter lived career from the mid 1980s to early 1990s
prior to animation and it involved sculpture, effects make up
and stop motion puppet making. I still sculpt to this day. I find it rather
therapeutic. An example of FX make up or ‘prosthetic’ make up is
this alien creature Sami I created from a design by Garret Sheldrew.
The character was designed for a short Mid 90s film written, directed & edited by
Erica Jordan entitled “The Link”.
These photos show part of the application on the actor and final
make up as it appeared in the film. We start with an early
Garret Sheldrew watercolor.
The ‘sculpture page’ on my website contains more of this
type of work. You’ll find a link to it in the ‘About’ section or in
the blog roll to the right. I hope you’ll check in once in a while.
I plan on posting some quicktime movies of a few make up
