The Murphy Elder

Back in the early days of the lair ... many young spfx artists were caught up in the pred fever.  One amazing young artist named Peter Murphy came on to the Lair scene and blew everyone away with his works.

I developed a friendship with him, he approached me to ask what predator piece he should try.. he had already done a predator 1 a few years earlier..

Over the course of a month discussed and I shared whatever studio images I could give along with high res images from the film.

Only 3 were made, to small to wear 

1 for him ..1 for Larry kidd, 1 for me .. I asked Larry to paint mine and I finished the detailing..

Every piece has a story behind it..thats the history of this piece... enjoy

Peter went on to work in film and is still sculpting.

That sculpture. The guy has serious talent, it blows my mind. You can't pinpoint the "it" factor but it has it.

And Larry's paint. Its the kind of paint that you can't help but stare at. So much depth and details.
