True, but this show is way too dependent on monster makeup, leaving it very niche, so outside skills are good too. If she was better at concept, it's have still paid off.

He's definitely the best artist on the show, hands down. I even liked his ant and, sure it wasn't his best work, but I do not understand why the judges were so harsh on him during that challenge. Maybe he just set expectations so high in winning the first 4 challenges, that they are more unforgiving when he makes mistakes. I don't know if you've seen tonight's episode yet, but it's a great example of that.
That giant really was parade material, I didn't think it was a bottom look but to win? That was nuts.
Yeah, Eric and Kris' giant looked like something you'd see walking down the street during a kid's parade, NOT something that could actually work in a major motion picture. It would be awesome if the artists had more time, but I guess they are being judged by their performance under extreme pressure as well.
More pressure? Maybe give them more than 8 hours on days 1 and 2. This is a competition based on artistic merit and execution, it shouldn't be office hours.
Ugh, that gummy cat with the stupid afro wig, and absolutely nothing about the concept came through, and the extremities didn't fit or blend. I honestly think they put her in intending to fail, a reverse ringer who played the reality competition game well enough to stick halfway through.
Autumn was the first contestant on this show that's I've actually been glad to see kicked off. She should have been booted for that giant Gummi Bear. That thing was horrible. Plus, her attitude has been bad from the very beginning. She definitely overestimated her own talent level.
Compared to the other entries in the superhero one, I think she deserved the save: http://www.fearnet.com/news/review/t...ic-proportions Her character, with all its flaws, reminds me of a silver age or bronze age DC character brought to life.
It was sad to see Alam go, but I understand why it happened. I think I liked her personality more than her designs. I'm actually surprised she didn't get sent home on that superhero challenge.
His sculpting never looks rough the way House's does, even when he comes up short in other areas, and I'm sure that's what keeps him in it. You are not remotely kidding about that bring Eddie from Iron Maiden, they were too generous with the claim that he nailed the Evil Dead aspect, that was b.s., he made a cartoon character.
I think that's a pretty good assessment. He's so intent on being dark that it kind of makes his ideas feel predictable. And sometimes his "go big or go home" attitude can backfire big time, as was evidenced by his and Anthony's werewolf (which was seriously just such a horrible concept). I think he's going to try to go big on one of the next challenges and, as a result, his make-up won't have the polish that the other guys' will and that's going to come back to bite him and he'll end up going home.
Did you see tonight's episode. The challenge was clearly right up his alley and his make-up ended up looking like something off of an Iron Maiden cover.
His bio says he's a football guy, I wouldn't think that alone would give him anatomy inspiration. His work tonight was a joke, the gator head was ok at best, the paint sucked, and the body was terrible. He has a lot of range, his crab inspired guy last week was genius, great observation of alien anatomy, not just human.
Wayne definitely has some of the best sculpting skills I've seen. And I think his interest in fitness gives him a better understanding of anatomy, which is not uncommon (comic book illustrator Joe Jusko is also a bodybuilder, so he uses himself as a reference in many of his paintings).
I liked his butterfly girl and his fish creature, but I can see on both how they aren't for everyone. His winning candy guy had a face right out of Star Trek TNG/DS9, and I don't mean that as a compliment, but I loved the chest design.
I have to admit that he's a talented artist, but I haven't personally been a fan of anything he's done so far. His sculpted faces always feel unappealing to me.
It seemed like his work got worse as the show progressed, sculpts getting rougher and rougher. I didn't dislike tonight's work as much as the judges did, but I did see their point on the headdress.
House has some amazing concepts (I loved his candy creature), and some not so amazing concepts; but I think his final products end up being too unpolished and rough for him to make it to the final three.
