Feeling Batty

In our last installment of the Rick Baker: Monster Maker blog series, we looked at one of Baker’s most noted creature calling cards, his apes, monkeys and gorillas. While his career will always be indelibly linked to his primate creations, he has created other notable creatures that were inspired by animals. In this week we look at two of the more menacing designs in the auction that were both inspired by bats.

Lord of the Apes: The Masterful Primate Designs of Rick Baker

We’ve already explored a number of Rick Baker’s incredible creations, but it’s possible that the creatures most synonymous with Baker’s career are the myriad apes and gorillas that he brought to life on screen.

Rick Baker: Monster Maker – Edgar

So far in our ten-part Rick Baker: Monster Maker blog series, we have taken close looks at the first Men in Black alien to grace the screen in Mikey as well as some of the incredible animatronic creatures brought to life by Baker. In this installment, we will look at an alien that while not the first alien seen in Men in Black may have the distinction of being the most notorious in the entire franchise. He may also be the most impressive feat of animatronics featured in the auction as well. We’re talking about lot 213 Full-Size Alien Edgar Bug Animatronic Character.

It’s Alive! Making the Monsters Move

In our last instalment we took a closer look at the artistry that went into achieving an authentic transition between Mogwai puppets and their Gremlin counterparts. Of course, no matter how aesthetically impressive a puppet is, if it can’t move it’s not of much use to the production and last week’s featured lots were no exception to this rule. As we saw with the Gremlins puppets, whether by mechanical components, servos or even through simple marionette puppeteering, Rick Baker has been just as revolutionary in bringing his creations to life through movement as he has been in their design.

From Concept to Creature: The Art Behind Monster Making

In our last post, we took a closer look at Mikey, the first alien to appear on screen in the Men In Black franchise. We found out that he’s kind of a big deal, but he didn’t start out that way. In fact, as you can see below, Mikey started out as a sketch on a page and then a clay maquette long before he became the recognizable alien seen on screen.
