Battle LA Maquettes







Here are a few pics showcasing the work Paul did on the Battle LA Alien maquettes. Paul worked on these with Jordu Schell a while back and most of these pics have never been seen before.

The first picture shows the alien roughed in with chavant. From there Paul took a variety of different scrap model kit parts and kit-bashed the mechanical elements of the sculpt. Many different wires, hoses and even leather string was incorporated into the piece.

The piece was painted by hand with many different layers of washes and fine details were done with an airbrush.

More Battle LA images, including a never before seen sketchbook page coming soon!

  3. Yes...very cool. It's a tough call making a "Hollywood alien," having something visually exciting yet plausible and "studio friendly" at the same time. Totally digging this.

  8. God, I really like these maquettes. These are some of the greatest, biomechanical pieces that I've seen. Very Giger-easue in my opinion. Just lovely.
