    Indeed! Legendary. I remember a show, I think on Discovery, back in the day called Movie Magic seemed like every episode had him in there somewhere.

    May a choir of angels sing you to sleep, man.

    Got to meet him at comic-con in 2003. Didn't want anything from him, just told him how much I loved his work and got a picture taken. He was a sweet guy.

    He made shitty movies tolerable and okay movies awesome. And then there were Aliens and Terminator 2 which were completely off the charts.

    Great man.

    :(

    I loved his work. The things he did in Edward Scissorhands and Big Fish were simply gorgeous.

    Rest in peace, sir.

    I've been astonished by his effects since I was a kid...

    He will be missed.

    It’s like a big imaginative chunk of the collective unconscious was suddenly eviscerated by a xenomorph :(

    Damn shame. Winston was the reason I got into 3D and CG in the early 1990s. Cheers, brother.

    Damn shame. The man helped to bring to life a huge chunk of my childhood with films like Aliens and T2.

    He was one of those people I wish I had the chance to sit down and pick his brain. He was one of the few people who could blend pragmatic engineering with artistry and do it in front of millions of people.
