Terminator

And The Machines fell silent

Stan Winston has died. :-(

Schwarzenegger may have played The Terminator, but Stan Winston built The Terminator, and after James Cameron is the person most directly responsible for the appearance and motion of the terminator endoskeletons. And the Alien queen. And the Predator. And the Jurassic Park dinosaurs. And Edward Scissorhands. And the Rippers in Tank Girl. Etc., etc., etc...

This severely sucks, and it marks the end of an era. I wish I had a "sad terminator" userpic. I don't know which is the more appropriate tribute- leaving the T2 machine powered off for the day or blowing the hell out of as many endoskeletons as possible?

Thank you for your wonderful art, Sir.
