WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Wooded trails can represent so many things: werewolves, slasher flicks, campire stories…
But this week's challenge isn't about any of those things! Using a real, far away forest as inspiration, the artists will craft the dryad that protects it.
Jordu Schell, of Hellboy and Avatar, is the special one-on-one coach for last week's winner, Matt. So jelly!
"Bigger! BIGGER!" cries Jordu, urging Matt to sculpt a larger cowl than he thought possible.
We sometimes wonder if Graham is on the wrong side of the makeup, what with his ability to become the characters he creates.
Mr. Westmore cautions Damien against covering up too much of his model's face - this challenge requires him to make armor, yes, but not at the loss of facial expression.
And for Kevon, a note that his face sculpt looks diseased. He has no choice but to start fresh.
Walter wants to bring in the multidimensionality of the eucalyptus by adding height in the crown.
Kevon is drawing on the asymmetry of his chosen tree, even though that feature is an obstacle to a high standard of beauty.
Matt is facing the consequences of a ginormous sculpture: a ginormous mystery as to how to mold it.
Damien goes big with a tree-shaped gauntlet. Spoiler alert: Ve hates it.
In the battle of Matt vs. Derek, the winner is Derek!
In the battle of Walter vs. Graham, the winner is Walter!
In the battle of Mel vs. Damien, the winner is Mel!
In the battle of Kevon vs. Jordan, the winner is Jordan!
The giant gauntlet and the obscuring of his model's face put Damien in bottom looks this week.
Derek focused on detail and anatomy, and it paid off! This is a top look.
Kevon chose to focus on more things than the judges would've liked. He goes home this week.
The judges find Walter's work to be an excellent blend of beauty, belligerence, and arboreal presence. He wins this challenge!
Graham had an excellent face sculpt this week, but lost it behind a mediocre paint job. He also goes home this week.
