After building FURY, what comes next? War Daddy!
Yes the FURY tank crew’s commander Don “Wardaddy” Collier as portrayed in the movie. I was given the opportunity to apply my figure painting skills to a 1/10 scale bust of this character by my good friend Eric Herbert.
Figure painting can be quite daunting in a large scale, there really is no place to hide any mistakes! Given that this is an expensive piece I have taken my time with it and used a technique new to me which is painting in translucent acrylic skin tones. This is a difficult process to master and I still have much to learn. The uniform was painted in Tamiya acrylics and the unit and rank patches were painted in oils.
Here is my completed figure. I think is was a good sculpt and I have tried my best to capture the essence of the character. I have to admit he is not a dead ringer for Brad Pitt but I can see a resemblance there. I enjoyed the creative process on this project and will certainly like to paint more large scale figures.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy your Easter Holiday. Take care and Happy Modelling!
