The Aaron Sims Company is synonymous with producing concept designs for some of the industries most beloved films. Recently, they played a role in bringing an old favorite back to the big screen. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles defined a generation and spawned a myriad of spin-offs and a long-lasting cartoon series. As cultural icons go, you can’t argue with the foursome’s staying power.

In a recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com, Aaron Sims Company artist, Jared Krichevsky sat down to discuss the studios process for how the turtles came to life. Working side by side with other Aaron Sims Company ZBrush artists, Jared Marantz, Andrew Domachowski, Cameron Ward, Kelton Kram and Tsevtomir Georgev provided the framework for what these icons would eventually look like on screen. Motion capture duties saw the talented men and women of ILM take control of the reigns. If you haven’t seen the film, be sure to strap yourself in for a wild ride. Cowabunga!

RoboCop burst onto scene in the 1987 cult classic of the same name and immediately became a sensation. The dude even had his own video games that spanned across the 8 and 16-bit genres! No small task for a lone cop from a future Detroit! With a signature phrase that would leave the Terminator speechless, Murphy’s “Drop It!” can still be heard through the hallways of our office from time to time. Rejoice fellow ZBrushers, because your favorite cyborg cop is back and this time he’s got a high-tech suit designed in ZBrush. Check out this incredible behind the scenes, “making-of” footage from Legacy Effects! You’ll see how a simple concept sketch can transform into a fully wearable, blockbuster movie costume!

If your trigger finger is itching to design your own “robo” inspired suit, you’ll need to start with a high powered helmet! Lucky for you, we’ve been hard at work updating a video series covering just what you’ll need to get the job done! You’ll have to get your own Ford Taurus.
