Scene Stealers II - And the winner is...
Two birds with one stone by Eric Villanueva
Goku’s ultimate sacrifice. Stop your brother, RADITZ!
The Goku and Raditz figures are from the new JAKKS Bro vs. Bro series. After seaching weeks and about ten store across two counties I didn’t think I would be able to find them and thus not be able to complete my scene. The Piccolo is custom built from, yep you guessed it, the Burger King Piccolo. The head and feet were from SBC Piccolo. I used a wire hanger for joints, then added Citadel epoxy putty to hold the pose. Some Sculpey III was used to shape the folds where the joints are as well as his chest and neck. The beam is made entirely out of Sculpy and foil. The hanger served as a base and also goes into his arm to be held in place. All the Sculpey was baked in my car for about 4hrs.The background an ground are both hand painted with acrylic paints, the same I used to dry brush Picollo. A small lamp was used to try to eliminate shadowing on the beam.
Eric won with 17.76% of the vote, out of 107 votes total. The staff pick will be announced tomorrow. Congratulations Eric, and thanks to all who entered the contest!
