Going to the Face Off Finale!

Week 10: Living the Dream, Part 1

Face Off is down to four contestants, and this week's Spotlight Challenge was to choose two characters from the new SyFy show, Defiance, and create a hybrid.  Anthony picked the Liberata and Mutant creatures.  To get a closer look, the contestants were surprised with a trip to Toronto to visit the set of Defiance!

Anthony's hybrid was very successful, the judges loved his overall look and paint job and thus, awarding Anthony the winner of the challenge and the first spot into the season finale!  Anthony was joined by Kris and Wayne, while the show said good-bye to Eric F.

Anthony chose Anubis, the patron God of embalming.  Unfortunately, the judges were unhappy with his overall paint job and thought the head dress could have been bigger.

Week 8: It's Better in the Dark

In my personal opinion, this was by far my most favorite challenge of this season on Face Off!  The contestants were taken cliff side where they had to create a new species of aquatic life as they did in movies such as The Abyss and Avatar.  The twist is they would also have to utilize bioluminescence paint, which is visible under infrared light.  Anthony decided to create an amphibious warrior creature taking inspiration from the red-eyed tree frog.  Anthony received a positive response from Michael Westmore on his walk-through with each contestant.

As a whole, the group came up with some interesting concepts.  Anthony and Wayne landed in the top looks while Megan, House and Eric Z. landed in bottom looks.

For the bioluminescence challenge, Anthony was announced the winner!  His sculpt was amazing with special attention to detail, while his bioluminescent paint job was spot on!  The pictures don't do his creature justice, if you haven't seen this episode, I highly recommend you catch a re-run or download it on iTunes!

While the show said good-bye to Megan and Eric Z., it's down to the top 5 and next week will bring MUMMY MAYHEM!  Check out the sneak peek HERE!

Face Off: 2 weeks on the bottom

Week 6: Bugging Out


This week the Spotlight Challenge was to select an abstract image, which turned out to be a microscopic close up of a bug!  The contestants had to incorporate their insect color and texture on a life-size version of their selected bug.  Anthony chose the army ant, and it proved to be a difficult challenge this week.  Regardless of Anthony landing on the bottom this week, he still was voted safe by the judges.

Week 7: Howl At The Moon

This episode began with a Foundation Challenge with special guest judge, Gail Anne Hurd from The Walking Dead!  In this Foundation Challenge, the contestants were teamed up to turn a large group of background actors into zombies!  Anthony was teamed up with Megan and their quick make-up attack and collective group completion landed them on the top.  Megan was awarded immunity for this week.

For the Spotlight Challenge, the contestants were paired up to create a werewolf from a chosen planet.  Anthony was teamed up with Fox and they chose Saturn.

Watching their sketching session, you know this piece was going to be big and outside of the box!

The judges were unimpressed with their efforts this week, as their 20 piece suit (made in 20 hours) landed them on the bottom.  Kris and Wayne pulled top looks and Kris was announced the winner of this challenge.
