Rig Spotlight: Jon Hansz' FrostByte

Thus, FrostByte was born. And it is amazing. FrostByte took first at PDXLAN 29 in February and had a solid showing at the 2016 ThermalTake CaseMod Invitational Season 2.

Just like with his Yoda build, Jon added three-dimensionality with this super-detailed dragon using his homemade vacuum former, styrene and MagicSculpt.
Nothing says a PennyWise mod like custom-laced cables.
