"At Ease Disease!"
Thanks for looking peoples, this is my first submission to this fine site (Ha! submission - get it? ... nevermind...) so be gentle, but hope you like.
It's a character I wanted to do for a while and wanted to do the full GiJoe costume, but since the rules here say it had to be the wrestling get-up, I guess I'll have to modify him later (camo legs and GiJoe logo basically?)
So I used the WWE Big Show figure as a base, sculpted the nose and the bottom half of the face, replaced his right hand with another WWE hand and cut the finger off the fist and sculpted a pointing finger in place. The Title belt came from maybe Batista?
All other bits were scratch-built:
Hat = Sculpey for the top, old credit card for the brim, electric wire (sheathed and bare) for the belt bit, and wire for the Sgt. stripes.
Whistle = Crushed tin foil and bent wire glued onto cord.
Cane = Tube from inside a Bic pen, sculpted tips.
Wrist bands = black elastic fabric (and glue)
Belt = Black fabric with elastic bit at back, bent wires for the front hook, and stuck some sculpted pockets around (plus a bottle cut off an Al Simmons figure).
Glasses = Bent wire glued around clear plastic painted on the back for the lenses.
The backdrop is an image on my monitor with a strategically placed white tee-shirt for Sarge to stand on so it looks like the canvas.
All the paint is a mixture of Vallejo and Citadel.
Hope you like him but I'll appreciate any ideas for improvements or just biting critiques if you can.
Cheers for looking!
