    (UPDATED) DRAGONHEART process...

    So, here's a couple shots I mentioned I'd put up. This is the model used for scanning and paint reference in the movie Dragonheart. Not a good movie, but oh well. We made three identically painted hard copies (with wings) in the end. One for us, one to go to the set in Slovakia for lighting reference, and one to go to ILM where they scanned it and built what became the final cg puppet. Funny story I heard is that Dennis Muren at ILM nicknamed it "Tippetts Curse" because they thought we intentionally put a ton of detail in the model that would need to be made with geometry, thus making the puppet incredibly heavy. The truth was that I had no idea about cg modeling back then and just tried to make it look good. Anyway.

    face detail...

    -thanks for the great comments you guys, it's great to hear that there are people out there that even remember that movie. Btw, Sean Connery got paid something like 15 million to voice that character. They set up a studio near a golf course in the Bahamas and recorded him between holes for a period of about 4 days. Nice to be a legend and get the legend treatment I guess.
