Jorune haunts my early work like a lingering dog fart.
This is a very bad photo I took of a very detailed sculpture I made of a creature called a 'Corastin'. I did this as a side project when I was working for Rob Bottin on my first real movie gig.
Not long after I designed this creature, a video arcade game came out called 'Rastin'. In this game a barbarian battled a big lizard man that looked an awful lot like my creature. The Corastin had first been featured in the Skyrealms of Jorune role playing game, published in 1984.
If anyone knows anything about the origins of the Rastin arcade game, please let me know.
This sculpture was made into a mask released by Dave Smith's 'Stroke of Midnight Studios' mask company in 1986.
Tom Savini bought the first pull out of the mold.
