Pictures of your driver figure

Recommended Posts

Finished. Sanded his pointy nose down a bit, gave him some stubble and a grubby white shirt. Would like to have made the eyes better but I think that’s the best I can do.

  If you’re talking about mine, Thanks very much 👍🏻  
  I only see myself shadowing in the talent among members on here. 
  It was more luck than judgement if I’m honest as it was my first WW figure using up what I had to hand. 
  
  I painted the face with (all Humbrol’s) flesh mixed with a dap of mat brown. 
  Next, gloss white for the eyes, then apply Metallic Green with a bamboo kebab skewer, and scrape through it with the tip before it dries to show the white radiating out for the iris. Then gloss black for the pupil. 
  Then mix a bit of flesh with a touch of mat red and using the skewer again add detail to creases in the skin around the nose & eyes with a bit of smudging. 
  The helmet was going to be Mica Petroleum the same as the car but I didn’t have any left so got the dark grey instead.

Bamboo skewer is a great idea. I was relying on the smallest of brushes, which was nowhere near good enough.

Really impressive result B)

It's a younger version of me driving the FJ40.

A friend used to own a 3D printing company and made a scan of my face and printed it. Weird.

Spent a bit more time on the eyes this time. Slowly getting better.

Dead Willy is a converted key chain from Disneyland. Ink washed paint on the skull and used a Bullet riddled GI Joe helmet rescued from my Dog chewing on it.

Willy 1 driver custom painted for me by Fabrzio.  An amazing amount of detail.

Another driver Fabrzio did for me is in my Rough Rider. You can see the hair of his eyebrows.

Big a fan of Matt Hicks Wild Wendy figures. My Wild Wendy 1

Here are a couple of more Wendy 3’s that don't have a vehicle yet. 

This is Postal Wendy.  A tribute to my favorite United States postal service employee that brings me presents all the time.

Here is Speed Wendy.  I’m probably going to switch out Wendy 1 with this one in my blown Wild Willy 2
