Default Stan Winston has died!!

Sorry guys, I know this is not exactly smackdown related, but Im sure you guys would like to know. Stan Winston died last night. He is responsible for the many characters and creatures we have all grown up with and have sparked our imaginations. I know that he is on of the reasons I was inspired to do 3D art. So I felt the need to create some sort of tribute thread, and hope that some of you guy realize what a true loss this is. Sad day

R.I.P. Stan Winston

He was the creator of many of the special effects ofr characters as well as the characters themselfves. Such as Terminator, Predator, Edward scissor hands and many other more. He was a pioneer in character creation and effects for movies. And many games have been created based on these characters so his influence is far reaching..

Your forum name seems spectacularly inappropriate.

Winston was a legend in the special effects business.

Hey, I don't follow those sorts of things? BTW, is that really a picture of you? Your eyes are kinda big, but whatever. And there is nothing inappropriate about my name?
