Well, I finally have a new post. I haven't been working on my customs as much over the past few months, but I have a few new ones to show you over the next couple of posts. First up are a couple of gifts I made.
This one is for Eric over at Guts and Grog. I've been promising him a custom forever and I finally finished one for him. I had a hell of a time coming up with a good idea, but this one just seemed perfect. He loves obscure stuff and The Exterminator 2 really fit the bill.
Now, I hadn't seen this movie when Eric showed me an incredible hoodie with the cover on it. I loved the cover, it's perfect 80's VHS cover art, Cannon Films and all, so I knew it was the way to go. I figured I should watch the movie for reference, so I tracked down a copy online and fired up the PS3. Let me just say if you like the cover you'll love the movie. It delivers on all fronts, other than the fact that the Exterminator doesn't look nearly as cool as this in the movie, but you've got Mario Van Peebles to make up for it.
I sculpted the head and set to painting. Getting that orange to cover smoothly was a real pain in the ass, but I think it was worth it.
I'm not sure if I'm 100% happy with the head sculpt, but I'm still learning when it comes to sculpting and he still looks bad ass.
Well Eric I hope you dig him and I'll get it to you soon.
Next up is one I made for my daughter for X-mas. She loves Roller Derby, so I made a figure of a Grave Danger skater from the Rat City Roller Girls.
She loved it and this was a lot of fun too make. I had to try out some new stuff on this one. I scratch built the roller skates and managed to get some cloth leggings on there.
All in all I'm really happy with this one, especially the way the face makeup turned out.
I'll have a new post for you guys tomorrow and hopefully they'll be much more frequent from now on. I'm planning on getting back into customs full swing and maybe even trying to branch out to commissions, but we'll see how it goes.
