I suspected this fellow on the right was going to be a bit grayer than the brownish ghouls - the way the opposite blue/green lighting splashed on him.
I have to be honest, this may be the finest single life-sized haunt prop I've seen. My favorite at the very least!

Thanks!
He's definitely in my top three faves. Loved how he came out.

The ghoul is awesome!!! I adore that ropey stringy effect you are able to get with the mache. Amazing!

Jesus - I think they look creepier with all the lights on!

Love the ghost, just amazing. Right there with Johnny and Blind Sentinels.

Love this shot! I have to agree with R Scarecrow. The detail is nothing short of amazing!

Love this shot! And I'm really curious about the rest of your workshop! Is it in the basement? I used to create in the basement of our old home in NYC. It was built in 1920 and the original owner died in the stairwell just above my workbench! I never knew this until years later, and I used to get the strangest vibe down there! I realize your a private person, but I'm sure we would all love to see a panarama of your "lair" and the place where you create your amazing work! C'mon Rot..give us a tour! We wanna see where the magic happens. I know we'll never get a tutorial but maybe you'll give us the next best thing?! ;)

I do most of my work in one half of our basement...totally wrecked it this year with an accelerated building schedule. But it was worth it. I'll try to snap some photos soon.

Great! Don't clean it up first I'm gonna zoom in to the supplies you use! You had several posts years ago when you responded to a question about varnish or latex paint you used! Those are few and far between. No one will be able to replicate your work , but it would be great to know what materials you use and see your space! I'm always fasinated by artists workshops. In fact , I have Nightmare Factory on Netflix on a loop! Rick Baker.Tom Savini.Greg Nicotero.Pumpkinrot!

The dried out pumpkin head on the scarecrow is so cool. Fascinating.....

Grim said...

I agree that they look awesome in the light!

I had a dried up pumpkin like that a while back, until one of my youngest two boys decided to smash it. I don't know which one did it, and don't really want to know... For their sake. :)
