So I'm a child of the 80ies but a teen of the 90ies. And that meant I was privé to some amazing adventure games. If you ask other people my age or even a bit younger what Adventure games they have played you will hear about Grim Fandango from almost all of them. It was a warm Art Deco world filled with unforgettable characters. Being a costumer since I was young I've always had an itch in the back of my mind to have a Manny Calavera costume. Well the one thing that always stopped me is my skill in reproducing it the way I envisioned it.
I now have Chavant Clay and I've fallen in love with how it allows me to bring the objects in my mind to reality with my hands.
A big shout out to Tom Beg who put his skills with 3D sculpture to renew Manny as if he was in a next gen game. He sent me his 3D file to use as reference for this project.
Who is also breathing new life into Grim Fandango in the style of a stop motion homage to the opening cutscene. He has been working hard on it since 2011 and looks to be making solid progress.
