Looking to push your texturing skills and even have a crack at Substance Painter? Well, this is chance and we have an incredible asset ready for you to download and start playing with right away.

Eddie is the creation of Paul Braddock, a talented artist currently working at Industrial Light & Magic. Paul has been employed as a VFX artist for over 15 years and has worked on his fair share of epic feature films. Eddie also comes as an unpainted Resin Kit with LED lighting which is totally worth checking out.

A special thanks to Christina Ryan for helping with simplifying the model and doing the UV work.
