FaceOff S4: Two Heads Are Better Than One

We’re back with another FaceOff and this episode we are working on giant two-headed giants!  This challenge is a promotional tool for the new schlock film Jack The Giant Slayer, though it’s a great idea so I can’t really complain.  And it’s a seriously tough challenge…these guys better go big or go home.

Anthony & Autumn – Two-Headed Cleft Palate Giant

Lauren – There is something pathetic about this giant.  He looks so sad, like he’s upset he has a head coming out of his chest and another one nagging him from his back.  Poor giant.  That said, Anthony never fails to impress, and Autumn didn’t do an awful job with the costume.  Overall I think it’s a successful piece.

Judges – From far away – not impressed, close up – great

House & Wayne – Two Headed Tree Giant

Lauren – I really like the texture they used on the body.  Wayne did a great job with the sculpting on this one, and the puppetry element in the face really gives the giant some real character.  That and the heads can actually interact with each other!  Great ideas at play here.

Judges – Great color choices and sculpting, proportions are a bit off

Meagan & Jenna – Two One-Headed Some Kind Of Quato

Lauren – These ladies were having trouble from the get go.  Whether it was the idea, or the execution, nothing was really working, and the high tension and inability to effectively communicate and trust one another was detrimental to the project.

Judges – There’s not a lot of good, stunning lack of originality, nothing good about it

Eric Z & Alam – Giant w/ Giant-Headed Feet

Lauren – I love that they went non-traditional giant with the blue.  He really stands out despite the fact that he isn’t quite as large as the other giants.  And I think the heads under the feet are a weird choice but I’m not totally hating it!  It’s totally bizarre and it doesn’t make any sense (why would there be heads…under his feet?!) but you know, I’m into it.  It’s so different.  Points for originality!

Judges – Head on feet is dreadful, ankles up: fabulous

Kris & Eric F – Jack Dressed As A Giant

Lauren – This giant is ridiculous.  Is it enormous.  Ridiculously large.  While it definitely wouldn’t work for film because hardly any of it can move, I love the tiny dude stabbing the giant’s hands.  Super fun, though I wish it was a little more ‘useful’.

Judges – Absolute success & very fun

THE DECISION

Who Won: Kris & Eric F!  This was a no brainer.  Eric F wins big time and this crazy bastard is really growing on me.

Who’s Going Home: Jenna.  I hope she recovers from her hand injury and get back to doing some good work.
