For a long time, I wanted to start customizing figures of my favorite ancient cartoons. My favorite cartoons are from the 80's. And best of all (and of all time) is Dungeons and Dragons. So, finally, I finish one. In fact, this is the precursor for a wave, because, now, I have already decided that I will do the entire main cast.
My first chosen could not be different … Eric, the cavalier. Undoubtedly, he was the protagonist of that series. Although, I just realized it, years later, at my adolescence / adulthood. To make this character I decided to use almost all techniques I have learned and developed over the years. From modeling face, to using alternative materials, or rubber paper and adhesives for the shield. By the way, that was very cool with metallic luster. I made two others. One yellow and other gold, but what I liked most was looks like metal.
The head was completely remodeled with epoxy. I had to cut off the face, literally, and replace a new one with epoxy and made the hair's points, on head’s top, with rubber wire. I had tried to make these points with Epoxy, but they had been broken all the time. I decreased its thorax to look like teenager body. I painted it using Dry paint and Wet brush technique to make wear and shading effects.
Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
Please see my others customs and comment about them too.
