Description

The Eborsisk, Gouache, 18cm x 13cm Designed and built by Industrial Light & Magic’s Phil Tippet and Randy Dutra (based on unused Star Wars monster designs by Ralph McQuarrie) the two headed, Eborsisk, was a go-motion monster created for the 1988 fantasy film Willow. Apparently named after two film critics, Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, the fire breathing monster was created accidentally by the main character Willow (played by Warwick Davis) during the battle of Tir Asleen after casting a spell (badly) onto a troll and kicking it in a moat. I tried a new set up for recording while I was painting and sadly only discovered half way through that if I film from the right hand side then all you really see is my hand over the painting as it progresses, sorry. So about half way through the film swaps to the other side so you can see more. I will continue to search for the best filming set up :) If you'd like to see more art go visit my websites: www.gnreid.co.uk graemeneilreid.tumblr.com You can follow me on Twitter: twitter.com/GraemeNeilReid You can buy my art and help pay my bills here: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ArtOfGraemeNeilReid ©2016 Graeme Neil Reid
