A SMALL GLIMPSE INTO THE AMAZING WORLDS OF AKIHITO
“AKIHITO is a superbly talented sculptor and makeup artist. He is proficient at both the artistic and the technical. His artworks exhibit a matured sense of grace and flow and his linework is a roadmap evident of fearless exploration – a trait that is intrinsic to a gifted master.”
Steve Wang Founder of Elite Creature Collectibles
AKIHITO is a uniquely talented character designer and sculptor. He has done spectacular works at KNB, ADI and Legacy Effects since 2002, and has worked on many great movies, including Transformers, Alien vs. Predator, Alice in Wonderland, Terminator 4, Pacific Rim and World War Z. The Queen Alien in Alien vs. Predator was designed and sculpted by AKIHITO.
I first created“Brain Dead" as a special-effect makeup character for Monsterpalooza 2016 in Pasadena, the biggest horror, creature and monster-makeup convention in California. I wanted to create something cool, a Japanese dark hero kind of character never seen in the movies before, since we tend not to have "dark heroes" in Japan. I hope "Brain Dead" will be a famous dark hero everyone loves in a Hollywood movie in the near future. Please enjoy this look at the "Brain Dead" bust statue. -- AKIHITO
