“Foster” is a 28mm Hasslefree figure which I feel certain is based on someone but not sure who. My guess would be Kurt Russell but if I’m right then I am at a loss as to what film. If anyone knows please tell me so I can then go “derrrrr!” In any event it is a figure I like and in keeping with wanting to develop my freehand work felt this figure provided some opportunity.
T-Shirts and vests provide scope I think for all kinds of logos and images which is possibly the biggest reason why I like this figure. The big question was what to do and how to do it? Out of the blue I had a flash back moment and remembered my brother and I used to draw Mickey Mouse by drawing around old pennies for his head and half pennies for his ears. Obviously that wasn’t going to work here but I was struck by the idea and determined to paint Mickey on his vest. After checking on a few Google images I set about giving it a go. A couple of progress photos are included below.
Once Mickey was done it was all about finishing the paint work. In effort to try something different I settled upon another variant of camouflage trousers and was pretty pleased with how these turned out. A few bricks and a splash of plant colour for the base and job done.
