The guy was a breeze to paint until I got to the checked pauldron. Oh, that was painful. Checks on a curved surface - urgh! I painted over and started the whole thing again a couple of times.You can see one of the early attempts - good at the front, but it all gets a bit wild at the back.
I was searching for ways to tie his base back to the illustration. I tried painting 'Smash' onto his base like grafitti, but it looked pretty naff, especially if you didn't know the significance of it. In the end, I just went with the wanted poster, evoking the papers on the table.
Here he is, admiring his own likeness.
At some stage, I'll have a go at his buddy. Just need to find the right head...and work out how someone would use a bolt gun and a power fist at the same time...
