    Default Giant Eddie Murphy head done in Zbrush

    Here's an movie advertising job we did at Gentle Giant.

    Scott Spencer helped me with this mesh.
    I had to line it up to reference pictures and to the poster using Zbrush perspective. Note the ear and nose.

    The obj was printed out on our Eden Printer, then molded and cast, and cleaned up.
    Mireya Romo-Bowen painted the Paint Master.

    A company called Daniel's Woodland milled the head in hard foam,assembled it, hard coated it, and built a trailer for it.

    Javier Soto had one day (!!!) to paint the 15 foot head.

    Then the head went to Paramount Studios.

    This thing is scary, big, and very cool all at the same time. It must be a trip to see your work printed so large!

    Wow! Very cool work! - NickZ.
