Well boys and girls, here is the culmination of a couple years worth (off-and-on of course) of work. The completed Justice League of America vignette. I completed this just in time for Wonderfest this year (early May). I took this back to my good buddy the photographer this last weekend and got some good shots of it. I've included a couple close-ups of the busts I didn't previously have in my V-Bench. You can look back at my V-Bench for close ups of the other busts (Batman, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter). The base is basically scratch built. I used two pre-cut wood bases, glued them together (base to base) and sealed up the seam. I used sheet styrene for the top, and strip styrene shaped like bolt heads for the "bolts". I cut and glued them in place. The "plynths" are 3/4" clear acrylic rods. I built the plaque holder from a 3/4" plumbing fitting, sheet and strip styrene. The plaque is a piece of glass I had custom cut. I then took it to a lady I know who does glass etching and she etched a logo of the Justice League that I had prepped on the computer (converted to vectors). She then painted the lettering with "Sign Painter's One-Shot" enamels. I had the idea of etching both sides, one in the plain white in order to try and get the small drop shadow on the lettering from the other side. I'm pleased with how it turned out! The figures are all aprox. 300mm resin busts. Sculpted by Jim Maddox. They are all quite large and heavy. They are all painted in oils over acrylic. I must note here, that the busts were sculpted in the style of Alex Ross, a popular comic book artist. His style tends to be a bit more realistic, using water colors and live models for his inspiration (I'll attach a picture of the art that I used for inspiration to the bottom of this thread). With that in mind, I made the effort to make my painting style for these busts match his painterly style of comic book art. With that, the Flash is gold and not yellow on his lightning bolts. Wonder Woman's Bodice is a nice gold and not yellow, all have pupils, not the stylized "white" or "solid" eyes. Flash's gloves are slightly darker red to simulate what I imagined to be leather. Oh, and Aquaman's shirt is finished with a pearlescent clear that is unfortunately hard to see in the pics, etc. I also tried to get a real styalized look to some of the highlights in the metalics, to symulate a comic book feel to them. As you can see some of the metalics have a "forced" bright circular or liniar highlight, that was my idea to get a realistic, but yet comic book feel to some of the metalics. I digress. On with the pictures. Thanks for looking! Jay H. More photos in next post.
