Mr R.B.Crispy beckoning prop

04-29-2010, 10:44 PM

Mr R.B. (Really Burnt) Crispy made a deal with a mysterious stranger to jump start his singing career but unfortunately he fell down, down, down into a burning ring of fire before he could make good on his promise to pay back his debt to the mysterious stranger and now he has to serve as a greeter to the underworld -constantly beckoning foolish souls to enter his master’s domain!

Wheew! Just made it in under the wire!
I was coming along nicely on this and had plenty of time, then things blew up at work and my free time went to zero, missed a couple of weekends of working on it due to family obligations ect and suddenly it was 2 days before the deadline and I was still only ˝ done! Some things are a bit sloppy, and I didn’t have the time for fine-tuning like I would have liked, but all in all Mr Crispy turned out rather well.
I will be updating my “Bio hazard zombie” thread with more progress pictures once I post here.

Oh he is too hot to handle...Really nice job!

I already commented in your progress thread, but I'll say it again - this is a beautiful prop and the beckoning finger really adds to its ambience:)

That is ghastly. Really it's almost hard to look at. Good job.

04-30-2010, 04:57 PM
Simply AWESOME!!! Great job. I am definitely putting this on the "to-do" list.

04-30-2010, 05:25 PM
This is wonderfully done - I really like this prop! May have to suggest this for the make and take.

That prop is on Fie-yah!

Great looking prop!!! :D Good job!

04-30-2010, 08:44 PM
Mr. Crispy is right...the internal lighting looks great, I can see that technique becoming very popular. The teeth made from coat hangers is genius!

04-30-2010, 08:54 PM
Its a hot prop...

04-30-2010, 10:05 PM
Very unique idea, it really does look like it's slowly burning inside. Very nice, and thanks for all the progress pictures.

That is cool, he just screams (UN)-welcome, without saying a word. His internal glow looks very good. Nice work!

Very Nice prop! good use of what Zurg coined the, "Internal Fernal"!

05-01-2010, 02:18 PM
MMMMmmmmmm - looks like he'd taste of chicken!

05-01-2010, 06:45 PM
Thanks so much everyone! :jol:
Glad you like it, I had so much fun making him, can't wait to start my next project!

Not really sure why some of my youtube links aren't showing up? But that's ok. :)

Wasn't sure if I should post all the progress pics I have in here or not
so here is a link to where I've been posting in the general prop discussion area:

MMMMmmmmmm - looks like he'd taste of chicken!

Very nice! Been having fun watching the build in the other thread.

05-02-2010, 03:20 AM
Looks very toasty :D Love the lighting.

05-02-2010, 09:01 PM
That is a wonderful creepy looking guy, I too love the lighting. Excellent build:)

05-02-2010, 10:06 PM
OOohh I like. A little crispy on the outside but still pink in the middle..... done to perfection.

05-02-2010, 11:38 PM
Yeah, I like 'em a little blackened on the outside, especially if he was Cajun... a little cayenne and mmmmmm.....

that's pretty horrific! Love the lighting effect. Well done!

Great job! the fact that its your first stab at it I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more great things from you.

05-04-2010, 09:26 AM
Very very creepy! Great lighting! Nice work!

05-04-2010, 10:36 AM
I too love the glow of embers as organs burn. and the coat hanger teeth are simplistic genius. perhaps a heat gun to singe them a little?

05-05-2010, 01:33 PM
very cool..great idea on the teeth..

05-05-2010, 04:03 PM
Great prop!

A lot of people have mentioned it, and I want to chime in too. The lighting really makes this props. Looks like a groundbreaker from hell! I love it! Great pose too!

Thanks so much for all the great comments!
And special thanks to everyone that voted for Mr Crispy! :smileton:
Wasn't expecting to do so well in the voting since this was one of my first real attempts at a full sized prop... I'm very flattered!
Thanks! :)
