See a bug hole? Nuke it! - more holes and and article!
« on: July 18, 2007, 01:49:59 AM »
I just finished this bug hole. Tried for something a little more novel...  based on the part in the movie where the tanker breaks through the surface. This was a trial run, I have a spare tanker head for the next one...

Very nice, quite creepy with the leg poking through.

Looks like a good way to use up spare legs....

So how did you do the cracked groundwork ?

It's very cool. Very atmospheric, and probably more evocative than the ol' Rabbit Hole effect.

I also think it's very telling that everyone here wants to know how you did it!  :)

Thanks everyone, glad it is a hit :) I am about half way done my second one, as well as a quick little well-illustrated article on exactly how I did it! Stay tuned!

Thanks again,

I built another one, and used the process to write a quick little article on exactly how I put these together! Hope you guys can use it! Find the article here:
