IRON ZOMBIE - STARK CONTRASTS
(BEST VIEWED LARGE AND FROM AN ALTERNATE DIMENSION NOT PLAGUED BY ZOMBIES) In the early days of the apocalyptic Zombie Outbreak Tony Stark's employees at Stark International were startled when the C.E.O called a company meeting to launch the latest model of his Iron Man armour..... It seemed odd that the Chief would pull them off the anti-Zombie munitions production line just to indulge in a corporate 'High Five' but how could they refuse Mr Stark's warm, personal invitation? "I'd like to have you all for lunch....." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Yatta!! Well, here he is at long last True Believers, my Iron Zombie action figure, inspired by the Marvel Zombie comic book titles. Mwuhahaha! Before I unveil the horror in all its macabre gory I thought I'd have a little fun first, considering how much work I had to do to get to this stage. It feels like it would have taken less time to make a full size costume instead of this 7cm high plastic toy! But, there y'go, such is life. Or, in this case, Unlife... Anyway, as I was sculpting the character it occurred to me that if I shot pictures from a discrete angle and with the figure's helmet visor down that you wouldn't be able to tell that he had gone Zombie....though there's a subtle hint if you look through the eyeslits and see that the whites of his eyes are just that....all whites! A word about the paint job. As you know I cast the figure from TC-808 A/B 78 Shore D white urethane plastic. After refining the components, sanding and cleaning I base coated them with Tamiya grey spray primer. The signature metallic red is more Tamiya spray, and the iconic gold is Champion Sprayon 24 kt Gold. I like the extreme shine that the Champion spray produces over most other metallic gold paints. The uni-beam emitter on the chest plate gave me a bit of trouble. Intially I painted it with white acrylic and then coated it with clear FIMO sculpture glaze. It's been a while since I used the FIMO glaze and forgot an old lesson, that it can sometimes cause the base coat to crack, which it did in this case. Although I liked the surprise 'shattered' effect that created it wasn't what I wanted so I cleaned the lens out with a craft knife and started again, this time coating it with Liquitex High Gloss Varnish. I'm pleased with the way the figure articulates, having pinned it with sections cut from fine aluminium tubing and also a number of nylon/brass ball and socket joints. The articulations are relatively loose, though it would be easy to make them tighter, and I may do that if it becomes an issue during photography. However, I appreciate the 'like a puppet with its strings cut' effect that the loose joints create for certain applications. It's easy enough to jam the joints for posing, so, no worries! For this picture I drew up a version of the "Stark International" logo that I saw in the 2007 Issue #2 of the Marvel Adventures comic. It's drawn in photoshop and then printed out on gloss card. It had just the configuration to backdrop the pose, though there was a lot of mucking around getting the figure placed in front of it 'just so'. Well, you know the drill! For a wonder, I refrained from sticking a repulsor ray blast flare in the palm of Iron Zombie's raised hand. A rare example of restraint on my part! Lighting wise I used a desk lamp high and to one side and no flash and of course shot with my dinky but sturdy Olympus Camedia C-450 Zoom.Edificio CSAV: Compañía Sudamericana de Vapores en Valparaíso
Twitter: gra make up Nikon D40 18mm f/8 1/15 iso200 EV.-0,7 Ya estoy en Madrid, ya estoy en Espana. Mientras hago tiempo para salir a fotografiar los alrededores, os dejo una foto de una de las ultimas tardes en Chile. Me toco el unico dia tormentoso de los ultimos meses pero las fotos merecian la pena. El tratamiento, aunque lo simule, no es HDR. Gracias a todos por los comentarios de estos dias. El edificio de referencia, con esa curiosa mezcla de lo antiguo y lo mas moderno, CSAV, pertenece a una de las companias navieras mas antiguas del mundo y fue fundada en 1872. En el comienzo, las actividades de la compania consistian exclusivamente en servicios de cabotaje, pero rapidamente se extendieron a lo largo de la costa Oeste de Sudamerica hasta el Canal de Panama, antes que este se abriera al trafico regular. Desde el primer dia quise fotografiarlo y no pude irme sin hacerlo. Un abrazo. I am already back in Madrid, I am already back in Spain. While I make some time to go out to take some surroundings pictures, I upload a photo from one of last evenings in Chile. I think it was the only stormy day of last months but the photos worthed it. Though it's an HDR-look like, it is not!. Thanks for these last days comments. Referenced CSAV building, with this curious mix between ancient and modern shapes, belongs to one of the most ancient shipping world companies and it was founded in 1872. In the beginning, company activities were consisting exclusively of cabotage services, but they extended soon along West Coast of South America up to the Canal of Panama, before it was opened for regular traffic. From the first day I wanted to shoot it and I could not go away without doing it. Big hug for all of you.
