Here is a Ray Gun (1 of 2 made) I designed and built for a collector.
Had a lot of fun with this one. Designed in XSI, exported to an STL file and printed on a Dimension BST 1200es..then sanding, primer and painting and detailing!

Here are just some the earlier incarnations of the PREDATORS ship. They were many but here are couple different ones. As you see in the maquette the ship was slimmer, sexier and more agile looking than the final design I have posted yesterday. But I would have to agree with Robert that the beefier final design definitely fits more the new clan of predators. Beside the maquette I am including the 3D design sheet and a very early design sheet of the 3d model in early stages. Enjoy!

Here is the Predator Ship maquette I've built for the production. This is the final ship as seen in the movie. about a week( 20 or so hours of print on the BST 1200) worth of prep and work not counting the design process or the building of it in 3D (XSI).
There is another maquette of a ship, an earlier incarnation (slimmer, longer,sexier with no rear engines) that I will post tomorrow. I hope you like it.. Enjoy!

So here are some more Predators concepts I did and a nice set picture of the Dog Handler Predator and me! I am 6'3" and look how big the Predator is next to me
his claws are as big as my fingers! I designed his costume.. KNB guys built it! I have also posted some hound ideas i did but got rejected over a scarier design that Chris O. did. Predator "berserker" face ideas that I explored.
Also the some early predator designs..a red skinned Predator ( in an early draft of the script the "prey" traverse a desert section of the preserve where they get stalked by a different looking Pred.) the one in the middle is my version of a female predator(I know.. kind of silly).
Also the Predator ship...that I designed, modeled and textured. Soon I will post some early designs and maquettes I built of the ship. Enjoy! and THANK YOU to all of you that left me the kind comments!!!

here are some more Armour designs for the new clan. I will post some more versions, tomorrow. Earlier on, the script called for a Samurai look to their Armour but we all came to the conclusion that was the wrong look for these new guys...less is more as Robert always says! Enjoy

I am posting some art I did for Predators, stuff from very early on and some final comps. We had less than 8 weeks to come up with designs for the new clan of Predators..
KNB had to build them at the same time so we had to give them designs as we got them approved from the suits to the shoulder weapons. at the Same time Steve and Caylah ( the production designers had the art dept. humming on environments and locations...they also designed the center piece of the movie the Predator Camp, which turned out unbelievable! Anyway.. this is art created by me some from concept to final comp (i must admit though that I did have some help from our flame artist Drew De LaCruz with the drill plate tracking and color correction.) like always it is a pleasure to work with great artists and collaborate. I will be posting more next week!

it's been a long time since I have posted on this blog. Predators debuted on Friday
and I am very happy some of my work made it in! The drills, Predator ship and the dog tracker predator costume design that KNB knocked out of the park. I will be posting some of the designs next week.. stuff that I have worked on and pre-production art I did. But here is a pic with the beautiful Predator head that the awesome guys from KNB built!
