Default Nov/Dec - Character - martial arts - Chris_H - Norm

This should be fun
Going for Gollum as Bruce Lee, enter the dragon style. Hope to animate him too (as I really didn't do enough last time round).

Not too sure if Bruce is evil enough for Gollum though. Anyone know of any Lee movies where he was really bad? Got to keep it character

Cool idea. If you're just doing Gollum, then your thread is named incorrectly... Gollum is considered a character. Not a creature. Do you plan on adding a creature also? If not, I can rename it.

I never saw Bruce Lee as an evil character..Although there is one movie where he was soo pissed he went in another martial arts school only to kick everyones ass in it, near the end his face looked really evil..The movie is called Chinese Connection.

Another movie of him evil looking is Enter the Dragon..When he kills the main bad guy's bodyguard in the tournament.

Looking forward to your updates!

I wouldn't be too concerned with Gollum's evilness. He's a bit of a special case, as he's got a split personality between "kinda-good" Smeagol and "bad" Gollum.

Made a start on Gollum's head.

Had a tough time finding an even reference on this, even after loads of searching. All the shots I find are at skewed angles, but heh, no one said this would be easy

Quick thank you and credit to my 9 year old, tykwondo student,
ass kicking son for the idea.

Cheers Witchy some way to go yet.

I might try and post a wire later Tigglypom, however, I have to take a few days off from the challenge so I'll fit it in if I can.
