Hello fellow droogies and devotchkas. Some of you chellovecks may have read the book or at one point seen the movie A Clockwork Orange? A story set in England of a bleak future where teenage thugs terrorize with impunity and dish out the ole ultraviolence from time to time.
Alex, the main character is more than just a bully. He loves music, has his own slang lingo, a regular Valentino with the ladies, and appreciates erotic art. His criminal activities are mostly escapades that he has with his gang to alleviate boredom. He can't help it if the person they're victimizing dies in the process of their fun. Even after undergoing police brutality, mistreatment by the system for inhumane experimentation, he manages to still keep jolly with blissful thoughts of stuffing eggiwegs into some poor bloke's bleeding hole lol.
Sculpted the bowler, the hair, jock guard and re-did the face. Had so much fun turning Oldman into the Joker, wanted to try updating the Alex character with a new actor. There were several candidates, but in the end, chose another bada$$ in his own right - Mickey Rourke. Have always been a huge fan of his classic screen work (Barfly, Rumble Fish) decided it would be hilarious and a homage to sculpt his likeness to this custom - mostly reworked the mouth into more of a sneer. Made a sword cane that actually pulls out a mini-sword - the top portion was from a coffee stir stick. Added the straps from vinyl, boots from a wrestler fig and placed tiny eyeballs on his sleeves (rolled from clear glue, repainted).
Thought it'd be real horrorshow like to make a custom of this retro bad boy from the future - and puts 'em at #4 on our spotlight of scoundrels.
So let's dispense with the chepooka and cue Beethoven's Ninth! Pour yourself a spiked glass of moloko, peel back your eyelids and shoot yourself to palookaville!
Thanks for looking!
