    I haven't done any sculpting in a while, decided to have a go at something small, allways loved the Krite puppets from the critter movies, so thought i'd have a go at one

    It will have separate teeth and light up eyes, and hand laid hair

    Nice. One of my favourite creatures. I especially love the ones from the 1st movie - much meaner and more feral looking.

    Yeah, I love Critters.

    The two babies I sculpted myself (one from Part 2, the other from Part 4), the medium Krite is a resin cast of the old Fangoria puppet, the two large Krites are Bump In The Night Productions puppets and the egg is production used (probably screen used) from Critters 2.

    What are you planning on casting him in?

    Yeah, was just going to say that you should do the Critters 4 baby - the new reference pics of the prop appeared online long after I did my attempt at it.

    I like your version of it, i had two pics to work with, plus a screengrab which was next to useless as there was heavy smoke covering most of it up

    I'd love to see a really well done Critters (1) egg. The only replicas I've seen are of the egg from the 2nd movie.

    It's pretty much a solid resin cast from what I can tell (with a fairly sloppy paint job).

    Not to derail your thread, but I was just looking online, and thought that the guy who eats David's hat in FotN would be right up your street. Always wanted to see one done.
    lol

    The one on the left obviously. lol

    No problem, derail away, :) i do take commissions on for stuff,shoot me a message if its something you want, i do remember that part of the movie , haven't watched it in ages, i imagine theres not much good referance apart from screengrabs of that scene.
    upcoming projects for me are yoda,(i know everyones done it but i haven't) a podling from dark crystal, hopefully aughra to , if i can figure out how to do those horns!
