Star Wars Plastic

Saturday, March 11, 2006

I was starting to get a bit down of being up to my elbows in code working on the FormatPixel project, so I’ve taken sime time out to add this new illustration of a vintage 1977 Star Wars action figure to the Fantastic Plastic collection. (Kind thanks to David for supplying the figures)


1977 Storm Trooper – Illustrated in Flash

This actually took quite a few sittings to finish! I’m considering doing quite a few and expanding the whole Fantastic Plastic set. Plastic’s cool ha ha!

Its on it’s way…

Rescue Mission

Just finished the publicity for the DICCU Mission. Bit of a change in style with some photo montage-tastic-spray thingy! I got the final poster prints through the post last week and was chuffed with the finished colours.

Oh and in case your wondering, the guy running was myself stressed that I couldn’t find a photo, it was a boiling hot day in a stuffy loft using a camera on timer mode! ha ha!!

Fantastic Plastic – Part 4

This illustration of a Barbie was really tough. I still don’t have an actual doll to do the illustration from, so this one was created from a series of photo’s which I found and have been sent. Trying to understand the dolls shape and structure proved difficult and in the end just drawing lines which went against my gut instinct provided this finished result!

Vintage Barbie – Part 1
Barbie dolls don’t seem as shiny as Actionmen, very Matte! Even though these dolls are meant to represent some sort of “ideal” figure, it’s great how nothing can control the hair!

Fantastic Plastic – Part 3

Today I’ve spent a lot of time coughing up my lungs from a chest infection, (er, nice!) however between the hacks I’ve managed to knock out another Action Man illustration. This is my original who’s head is now super-glued on!

1978 Eagle Eyes Part 2 – Commando

Looking at this one and then the first illustration of an Actionman, I think that I’m starting to find the style I need for this set. The first Eagle Eye’s may have been a little over worked and I’m trying to convey the idealistic, mass produced quality of these toys.
