Capt. QUINT - final 3D sculpt (full color)

Fresh from Seattle - the final 3D digital sculpt in all its colorful glory. My 3D model maker and designer, Peter Thurwachter, has flawlessly translated my illustrations into a texture mapped digital 3D equivalent, ready to be sent off for vinyl production!

The colors may appear somewhat flat in these images, as they are intended to represent painting guidelines for the manufacturer. I am, however, using them to create an airbrushed prototype of my own...

...despite not having touched my airbrush since my Art Institute days in Seattle, over 15 years ago - I have high hopes for the outcome!
Now, the color is going to be a basic 2 tone green kelp cammo with fire engine-red "wing tips" and tail. the underbelly and engine accents are going to sport a chrome or brushed aluminum finish - still in testing, at this point. I am creating the decals (solely for my prototype) in Illustrator and printing them on water transfer decal paper...

...lets see what happens!

PS. We also went with a removable clear plastic display stand to ensure proper exposure on the toy shelf!
