And of course, the Dark God himself

Recently Kevin has been unearthing some of the puppets, and their current-state is not always pretty:
The Blood Gargoyle
This was the first character I made (and then remade) for Blood. He was very fun to animate and it was quite the learning experience. Unfortunately, after 20 some years, he is falling apart.
There was a time, many moons ago, when video games were made with the help of Polaroid cameras, video cameras, acrylic paint, liquid and foam latex, and clay. Good times!
I still live...again.
The Caleb model from Blood is one of the few that is holding up and not disintegrating...although he's not really flexible anymore.
The cultist from Blood. He's still quite posable because deep down...he's secretly a Power Ranger. Once I had the ability to get characters into the game, I started looking for any opportunity to get the models built as fast as possible. I ran over to Toys R Us (RIP) and grabbed a couple Red Rangers that looked like they had enough joints to get the movement I wanted.
Another cool thing about the cultist character was the ability to do pallette swaps on the robe so we got a lot of mileage out of this one dude.
The Blood Eel
I really enjoyed sculpting and painting the eel. Unfortunately, he gets shrunk down so tiny in the game that much of the details are lost.
The Blood Hellhound
The idea for this guy was as simple as a skinless dog that breathes fire. I wanted a beefy creature so I loosely based the design on the demon dogs in the original Ghostbusters (just without skin). It was fun animating a four legged monster.
It was probably Nick's idea to have Cerberus as a boss. We cut him down from the traditional three heads to two which made animating him much easier but you still had to kill both heads to beat him so he had a lot more animation frames than the average character. He was fun to make and is still holding up relatively well for being so old (just like me)!
Butcher Zombie from Blood
Time has taken its toll on this guy. He lost one hand and is about ready to lose the other. I guess that's probably a common problem with zombies...you start to rot and body parts start falling off.
Just get this guy out of the water and then he's easy to beat.
The Blood Voodoo Doll
Who would you like to use this on?
This was a fun/funny weapon to use in multiplayer!
