For this week's individual spotlight challenge, the artists chose a real life space recording and used them as inspiration for their very own fun and friendly alien creations.
This is Faina's final look. Glenn liked it better up close while guest judge, award winning make-up artist Rick Baker (Men in Black, Star Wars, Planet of the Apes) didn't care for the forms on the side of the face.
This is KC's final look. Ve thinks that it's too "busy". Glenn says it looks like a space turkey. Rick Baker shoots back, "What's wrong with a space turkey?"
Here's Kierstin's final look to which Neville comments, "Where the hell have you been?" Meaning that he totally digs her creation. Neville goes on to say that this is exactly the type of work Kierstin should have been doing all season long. All of the judges agreed that the paint job on this is gorgeous. Also? Kierstin had the winning look for the week and was the first artist to be sent into the finals.
Nelson's final look reminded Rick Baker of a gekko. And while Neville liked the paint job, although he commented that it was a bit monochromatic. Although Nelson's alien was fun, it wasn't enough to send him to the next round and he was eliminated from the competition.
The judges were feeling Andrew's final look, an alien named Sticks. Glen says that Andrew was able to strike the balance between realism and fun in this challenge.
