Rick Baker - CGI Cyclops
Rick Baker the Make-Up artist who created the Make-Up FX for such films as Star Wars, An American Werewolf in London, Bigfoot and the Hendersons, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, Coming to America, Men in Black plus many more has been dabbling in CG for a few years now, recently CG Talk on the CG Society.org forums ran a contest to pay tribute to the films of Ray Harryhausen. Pictured above is Rick Baker's fabulous recreation of the Cyclops from The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad.

Rick Baker has always been one of my favorite artists, his make-up work has always been superb and now so is his CG work, I'd love to see someone Rig and Animate this Cyclops !!
