Muscle Monster / Muscle Man for the Netflix show Sweet Home!
This was an exploration of an action punching pose and a more neutral walking pose. Special attention had to be given to where the suit performer's head would be and how the massive neck would accommodate or limit the degree for a free range of movements.
At the start of the design process, I was given a rough base model of the figure, then I was tasked with designing and sculpting the head and face to resemble the actor / suit performer, explore different color variations, designing different skin textures, design the teeth and then explore different poses. (The general muscular anatomy, as well as the hands and feet were already established before I received the 3D model.) I also explored some proportional changes to the size of his larger arm (spanning larger to reach the floor and smaller to match the other arm), explored changing the mass of the body to fit closer to the suit performer and also explored the degree to which the muscles sagged, especially the abdomen.
I was so excited to see how Muscle Monster was introduced in the show! I loved the super creepy smile! The show was so horrific and bloody, I was pleasantly amused! What did you think?
