Year was 2005. I was first hired to 3d model, texture and shade a photo-real scorpion as part of a VFX studio’s samples for their bid, competing against other studios in being chosen and awarded to provide visual effects services for this film, The Cave.
My scorpion won the bid! The studio that hired me, was awarded the film’s creature visual effects work, and I was hired back on to create these scorpions to be used in the actual film.
Here’s some clips from the film starring my scorpions 😉
