Brian Engh is unleashing monsters
June 16, 2014
We feature a lot of Brian Engh’s stuff here–enough that he has his own category. But lately he has really been outdoing himself.
The wave of awesome started last year, when Brian started posting videos showing builds and suit tests for monsters–monster suits, monster puppets, monster you-name-its. Like this monster-sculpting timelapse from last August:
And this suit test from last October:
Brian even wrote a blog post about how he builds monsters.
Things really ramped up this May with the release of “In Mountains”, the first video in a three-part series from Brian’s Earth Beasts Awaken album (which is badass, and available for free here).
If you’re thinking that the Mountain Monster has some Estemmenosuchus in its background, you are correct–that astonishing real-world critter was one of Brian’s inspirations, among many others.
More awesomeness is coming in July, when the next video, “Call to Awaken”, is slated to be released. Here’s a teaser:
I have even more exciting Brian-Engh-related news, but I am not at liberty to discuss that just yet. Hopefully sometime this fall. Stay tuned, true believers. UPDATE: Now I’m at liberty to discuss it!
